Preheat the oven to 190°C fan 210°C (Gas Mark 6, 415°F). Place the cut peppers in a deep baking tray.


Mix the remaining vegetables with the freekeh in a large bowl and add half the passata. Season with half the salt and the pepper and stir through the olive oil and herbs. Use a spoon to fill the pepper halves with the mixture.


Pour the rest of the passata around the peppers in the tray, adding about 360ml (12¼fl oz) water and season with the remaining salt. Cover the tray tightly with foil – this will create steam inside to cook the freekeh. Bake for about 35 minutes until the freekeh is cooked. Use a small teaspoon to try a bit of freekeh; if it needs more time, return the tray to the oven for another 5-10 minutes.


Serve with some of the warm tomato passata from the baking tray.
