Nutritional values

Peppers contain a large amount of various antioxidants, which have been shown to protect cells and reduce cardiovascular disease. Chickpeas provide us with abundant high-quality protein as well as iron - especially interesting for vegetarians.

If you wish, you can also prepare the filling with other legumes: Lentils (for example, mountain lentils, Puy lentils) or kidney beans are also good. If you can't get tomato bell pepper paste, replace it with tomato paste.
