  1. Mist the halloumi with cooking spray and sprinkle over the dried herbs. Put a halloumi slice in the centre of each pepper and fold to make a parcel, securing with kitchen string and pressing with your hand to flatten slightly.
  2. Preheat a barbecue or griddle pan and cook the parcels for 10 minutes, turning once, until the peppers are charred and the cheese softened.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, vinegar and mustard. Stir in the lentils, tomatoes and parsley, then season to taste. Serve with the red pepper parcels.
  4. Preheat the grill to high and line a grill pan with kitchen foil. Grill the peppers for 1012 minutes, turning often, until just beginning to soften and colour. Transfer to a heatproof bowl and cover with clingfilm. Let stand for 5 minutes then carefully peel and discard the skins. To open each pepper, make a cut down one side, trim the top and bottom and discard the stalk and core.
