  • 1 cup onion
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1  zucchini
  • 1 cup button mushrooms
  • 2 cups brown rice
  • ½ cup sweet corn
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 500grams lean chicken mince
  • 8 large capsicums (depending on size)
  • ½ cup crumbled feta 


  1. Firstly, preheat your oven to 165 degrees, fan bake. 
  2. Slice your onion, and add to a pan on medium heat, sauté with a dash of olive oil and mince garlic.  
  3. Dice your button mushrooms, and when your onion becomes translucent, add to the pan, along with your diced tomatoes 
  4. Dice your zucchini and add to the mixture, stirring thoroughly 
  5. In a small pot, cook your brown rice.
  6. Add your chicken mince to the mixture of onions, mushrooms and tomatoes. Stir and continue to cook until tender. 
  7. Add your sweetcorn to the mix. 
  8. Once your rice is cooked, drain the water and add to your pan of vegetables and chicken. Mix thoroughly.  
  9. Whilst your mixture reduces, wash your capsicums, and cut them in half. Hollow out the capsicum halves, and place on a lined baking tray.  
  10. Using a spoon, scoop your mixture into your capsicum halves, ensuring that they’re filled to the top. Once all of the capsicum halves are filled, sprinkle your crumbled feta on top. 
  11. Put your stuffed capsicums into the oven for 25 – 35 minutes, or until the capsicum is gently charred/softened.
  12. Serve, best accompanied with a green leaf salad, and enjoy!
