RECIPES | Our lives have been a little hectic lately, so healthy eating has taken a bit of a back seat. In an effort to kick start our healthy weeknight meals, I created this lentil and Swiss chard bell pepper cups recipe. It requires less than 10 ingredients, cooks in 30 minutes and the cleaning up is minimal.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes / Cooking Time: 30 minutes / Serves: 4


  • 12 small bell peppers/capsisums
  • 400g tin of lentils, drained
  • 10g capers, diced
  • 5g smoked paprika
  • 1/2 small brown onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced
  • 70g swiss chard, roughly chopped
  • 100ml vegetable stock
  • Salt and pepper.


  1. Cut the top of each of the bell pepper and remove the seeds.
  2. In a bowl add the lentils, capers, paprika, onion, garlic, swiss chard and salt and pepper. Mix well.
  3. Fill each of the bell peppers with the lentil mixture and place in a baking tray.
  4. Evenly drizzle the vegetable stock over all of the bell peppers.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes at 220°C fan forced.


For a little bit of creaminess you can serve this dish with some natural yogurt or crumble goats cheese over the top.

Swiss chard has many names around the world – silver beet, perpetual spinach, beet spinach, seakale beet, or leaf beet. You can even use bok coy as a replacement if you want.
