Quorn Pumpkin Peppers
These Halloween stuffed peppers are great fun for the kids to make – they can even lend a helping hand when cutting out the faces on the peppers. Alternate the rice filling for couscous or brown rice, swap the pumpkin seeds for sunflower seeds and use different coloured peppers for a change. Serve with our Mini Halloween Pies and Spooky Sausage Rolls for a fangtastic feast!
