  • 3 large bell peppers
  • 1/2 block extra firm tofu (140g/5oz)
  • 3/4 cup mushrooms chopped
  • 3 tbsp tinned sweetcorn
  • 5 small vine tomatoes chopped
  • 1-2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic granules
  • 1 tbsp tamari


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees C/392 F. Chop the tops off the bell peppers and remove the seeds. 
  • In a large mixing bowl, crumble the tofu using your hands. Then, add the mushrooms, sweetcorn, tomatoes, garlic, turmeric, paprika, garlic granules and tamari. Stir well, then distribute the mixture evenly between the bell peppers. 
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the peppers soften and the tofu scramble is golden and crispy. Serve either as an appetizer, or as a main course with a side of your choice.
