Stuffed Capsicums with Spiced Mince

This recipe is definitely a mixed of cultures.  You have mince, mixed with a Greek seasoning, stuffed in capsicums Italian style, topped with Lebanese Toum (garlic dip).  I’d also say its a great budget friendly meal as you could use any leftover mince you had on hand.  Change up the flavours by using a different spice mix if it takes your fancy.


  • 500g mince – any mince will do so take your pick from beef, pork, lamb, chicken 
  • 2-3 tbsp Greek Spice mix – I made my own as per this recipe
  • 2 red capsicum
  • Garlic dip and parsley to serve


  • Preheat oven to 180c.
  • Heat frypan over medium heat and fry mince until just browned.  Add spice mix and stir to combine and then remove from heat.  Don’t over cook it.
  • Slice the capsicums lengthways and deseed.   Place cut-side up in a baking dish.  Spoon mince mixture into capsicums and bake for approximately 15 mins until capsicums are soft.
  • Remove from pan and place capsicum on serving dish.  Top with garlic dip and parsley and serve.
