Heat a grill pan and grill the peppers until they are black all over. Place them in a dish and cover them with cling film. This will loosen the skin

Mix the lamb mince with the shallot, garlic, red pepper, mint, cumin and egg yolk. Season to taste with salt and pepper

Peel the aubergine and cut it into ± 2cm-thick slices

Remove the skin and seeds from the peppers. Cut them in half lengthways

Roll the mince into 8 balls and place the pepper halves around them, then fix in place using the skewers. Place each of the stuffed peppers on a slice of aubergine and then put them on a greased baking tray

Bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 10 min, then place a slice of feta onto each one and return to the oven for a further 10 minutes

Arrange the stuffed peppers on the plates and serve with a fresh salad and a garnish of fresh herbs
