  1. Veggie paella-stuffed peppers

    Peppers take centre stage in this Spanish-inspired recipe. Whip up a smoky cheat’s paella with butter beans, tomatoes and peas, then load into roasted halved peppers. We like this with a simple rocket and tomato salad for a dinner that’s bursting with summer flavours.

  2. Red pepper, courgette and red onion flatbreads

    Slow cooking peppers with courgette and red onion makes the veg deliciously velvety. We flavour our veggies with cumin and chilli flakes, but you can use whatever you have in your cupboard. Top onto warm flatbreads with a sprinkling of crumbled feta and a squeeze of lemon.

  3. Easy charred pepper dip

    Roast any colour pepper with garlic, then blitz up with butter beans and paprika for a tasty dip. Use crunchy veg, like carrots or celery, for dipping as a delicious and healthy snack the whole family can enjoy. This is bound to be better than any shop-bought dip- plus, it bags you 2 of your 5 a day!
