Stuffed Chillies in Walnut Sauce

I am a bit of a chilli fan! I grow my own and we eat them with most everything. This is a recipe from the Vegan Society that we like to eat, it's healthy and tasty.  

-= Ingredients =-
12 large chilli peppers
2 small onions, finely chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 oz (55g) cashew nuts, chopped
2 level tsp mixed peel
2 dssp raisins

4 oz (115g) walnuts, roughly ground
7 floz (200ml) soya cream
2 floz (60ml) soya milk
2 oz (55g) vegan cheese, grated

1. In a preheated oven (190C/375F/gas mark 5) bake the chilli peppers for about 10 minutes or until they start to soften. Remove from the oven, make a slit in each from top to bottom and allow to cool. 

2. Fry the onion until soft, remove from heat and add the tomato, cumin, cashews, mixed peel and raisins. Mix well. 

3. With a knife or teaspoon, scrape the seeds from inside the chilli peppers. Carefully stuff them with the filling. 

4. Place in an ovenproof dish. Make the sauce by heating all the ingredients together, stirring until the cheese melts. 

5. Pour this over the chilli peppers and bake for 10 minutes. Serve with salads, rice or potato wedges. Serves 4 

You may wish to reduce the amount of cumin, it's a spice that is not to everyone's taste.

 If you are not vegan, then mainstream milk, cream and cheese can be used.
