  • 350 g minced beef
  • 2 Tbsp of tomato puree

  • A pinch of dried thyme
  • cumin to taste
  • paprika to taste

  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Meanwhile, chop off the tops of 6 bell peppers and clear out the insides.

  • Optional: Add cheese on top halfway through the bake.
  • Sprinkle with parsley and enjoy!
