  • Place the oil in a saucepan over a high heat, add the chopped onion and garlic and fry until the onion is lightly brown.

  • Meanwhile make the topping: place the Schär Multigrain breadcrumbs in a small bowl; add the chopped nuts and half the grated cheese.
  • Divide the breadcrumb topping between the peppers and return the dish to the oven, uncovered for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and top the peppers with the remaining cheese, return to the oven for a further 5 minutes.
