10 Things to do with Peppers

Today I picked up a massive haul of lovely yellow and red peppers from my local market for £1.

16 peppers for a £1!

16 peppers for a £1!

16 of the lovely things! I love a bargain, but how can I use them all before they need relagated to the compost bin?!

Here’s 10 things to do with a pepper:

(for some of these I could easily use two peppers – use lots as they are highly nutritious and very low calorie!):

  1. Eaten as they are, as you would eat an apple (my 2 year old Conor does this in his buggy, we get some odd looks!)
  2. Sliced up and dunked in to humus or salsa
  3. Use large chunks to scoop up cottage cheese as a low fat, high protein snack
  4. Diced and added to bolognaise or chilli
  5. Strips in stir fry
  6. Roasted in the oven at 180c for about 20minutes
  7. Diced in an omlette
  8. Diced in mini pastry-less quiches: beat 3 eggs, add pepper, grated cheese and tuna/ham. Pour in to silicone muffin cases, bake in oven for about 10-15 minutes at 180c.
  9. Stuffed with other ingredients.
  10. Smoothie – red pepper in a smoothie??!! I haven’t tried this one yet, but it looks interesting!
