Pre heat the oven to 180C.

Carefully cut the top off of the capsicums and reserve. With a spoon or melon baller remove all the seeds and membrane of the inside of the capsicums. Place on a tray.

Heat oil in a pan and add the chorizo. Cook for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Now add the garlic and tomatoes and sauté for a further 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the cooked lentils, parsley and fetta.

Fill the cavity of each capsicum with the chorizo and lentil mixture. Place the tops of the capsicums back on and drizzle with extra oil.

Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
