Stuffed Bell Peppers

Adding peppers to any dish help to add that burst of colour and sweetness to any dish. Stuffing them can even bring them to the very forefront of a dish making it much more delicious!

Serves 4
Takes 1 Hour
Cost per serve £1.38 (Tesco)

Ingredients List:

  • 4 red or yellow bell peppers, halved lengthways (stem left intact) (Deseeded)
  • 2 slices of sourdough, torn into pieces
  • 16 cherry tomatoes (Halved)
  • 4 garlic, thinly sliced
  • 4 anchovies, drained and halved
  • 1 tbsp capers, drained
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 125g pack reduced fat mozzarella (drained and torn into pieces)
  • 20g fresh basil, leaved picked.


Preheat your oven to gas mark five / 190°C / fan 170°C.

Put the peppers, cut side up (lengthways), on a large baking tray. Divide the bread, tomatoes, garlic, anchovies and capers equally between them, stuffing them in the middle.

Drizzle your oil on top of your peppers and season with your favourite flavours.

Pop in the oven and bake for around 50 minutes or until they are golden.

Finally, top with your mozzarella and basil, and then serve.

Hi! I’m Alex Greenhalgh and I am a second year at Edge Hill University studying Primary Education with QTS, and yes, I know I’m mad for going into that profession… (I’ve heard all the jokes) but I am keen to make a difference to the lives of the next generation. When I am not in University I enjoy cooking, gaming and the university students’ staple pass time, ‘spoons. My interests will be reflected with my blogs as they will have a strong focus on cooking. I understand the struggles and the endless trawls through Aldi looking for the best bargains, so I want to pass on a few insights into how cooking can be fun, inexpensive and tasty! I really do hope you enjoy reading my blogs!
