1 Cup couscous
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 Tbsp olive oil

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
Cut each pepper in half through the core and remove the seeds and then cut each half into half again, creating quarters.
Prepare the couscous according to package instructions, make sure to add the saffron to the water, then add the anchovies, olives, olive oil, chickpeas, tomato paste, salt and pepper. Give it a good mix to combine.
Place the peppers onto the baking sheet skin side down, then top with the filling and bake in the oven for 30 -40 minutes until the peppers have cooked through and the filling has crisped up.
Serve topped with prepared tomato and basil salsa.

Chefs Tip: You can do the same filling with halved peppers instead of quarters.
