In need of a quick and healthy lunch? These stuffed bell peppers are marvellous on their own or with a full meal.


1 large red and 1 large yellow pepper, halved and deseeded (leave stalks on)
85g couscous
25g pine nuts, toasted
handful black olives, roughly chopped
50g feta cheese, crumbled
50g semi-dried tomatoes, snipped, or handful cherry tomatoes, quartered
2 tbsp shredded basil



Heat oven to 200 C . Put the peppers on a plate and microwave on Medium for 5 mins, until almost soft.

Place on a baking tray, cut-side up.

Meanwhile, place the couscous in a bowl and cover with 125ml boiling water. Stir, cover the bowl and leave to stand for 10 mins. Stir the couscous with a fork to break it up, then mix in the pine nuts, olives, feta, tomatoes and basil.
