Sluttishly Vegetarian: Peppers with Feta and Pesto


This dish is super-easy, colourful and summery, and the sort of thing you can easily sling together after a hard day at work. I love the combination of sweet pepper, salty feta and tangy pesto. Serve it as a starter for four people, or a main course for two alongside some cous cous with toasted pine nuts.

Peppers with feta & pesto

You'll need:

  • 2 red peppers, halved and de-seeded
  • 1 block of feta cheese, cubed
  • 4 tbsps pesto

Make it!

  • Preheat the oven to 180c
  • Divide the feta between the pepper halves
  • Drizzle a generous tablespoon of pesto into each of the pepper halves
  • Bake on a tray for 20 minutes, until the peppers are cooked and juicy

There are heaps of ways you could make this recipe your own - how about swapping cubes of halloumi for feta or using coriander pesto? Just don't tell your friends how easy it was...

  1. I made this - it was AWESOME!

    We put adapted slightly and put some lightly fried onions and peppers as the first layer in each pepper, to use them up. yum.

  2. I make something similar with a layer of basil leaves, mozzerella and a half of a plum tomato squashed cut side down into the pepper. Lots of salt and pepper, delicious!
