Moussaka Stuffed Peppers

Moussaka stuffed peppers are a tasty summer alternative to traditional moussaka. Minus the usual creamy sauce and any potatoes, these stuffed peppers taste great with a carb of your choice and a big green side salad or Greek salad! This dish has been designed using Quorn mince as an alternative to make this a meat free dish. Quorn has been used due to it's high protein content, but if you eat meat you could use lamb mince instead.
