Delicious Nutritious Greek Peppers

Delicious Nutritious Greek Peppers

For a quick, easy and seasonal meal these simple stuffed peppers have a Greek feel and are packed with wonderful fresh ingredients that are perfect for early spring.

They should take just 15 minutes to prepare and are popped in the oven for 25 minutes and then they’re ready.

Ingredients

  • 4 peppers (any colour)
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 200g crumbled feta cheese
  • 50g pitted black olives
  • 200g halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Basil leaves to garnish

Method

  1. Set your oven to 200°c or Gas Mark 6.
  2. Slice your peppers in half lengthways and remove the seeds and membrane. Brush your peppers with a little olive oil and place them on your baking tray.
  3. Add the crumbled feta, tomatoes, olives, onion, lemon zest, garlic and around half of the basil to a bowl and combine evenly together.
  4. Fill each pepper with your mixture and then drizzle them with the remaining oil.
  5. Pop the baking tray in the oven for 25 minutes or until the peppers have softened and are tender.
  6. Garnish with the remaining basil and enjoy as a light lunch or dinner. Add some brown rice for a larger meal.

I have never cooked feta cheese before - just tend to have it in pilafs and salads. Does it still taste the same? Does it go all gooey?

that picture has me almost drooling! The Greeks do indeed serve this with other dishes, but stuffed peppers are wonderful. I'd wait until summer for the tomatoes as they aren't good at the moment, but otherwise I'll be trying this out ASAP.

These sound like a perfect spring meal, but I would definitely need the rice to fill me up.
