Halloumi stuffed peppers

Whip up these flavoursome veggie delights in no time – perfect for sharing during sunny evenings. Roasting red peppers and cherry tomatoes gives this snack a sweet and tangy base, with the salty halloumi and olives giving a savoury balance. Give this a go and you'll be making it again for sure!

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Halve the peppers, leaving the stalks intact but removing the core and membrane.
  2. Rub with 1 tbsp oil and place, cut side down, in a roasting tin. Put the cherry tomatoes in a separate small roasting tin, season and toss in ½ tbsp oil. Roast alongside the peppers for 15 mins.
  3. Heat the rice to pack instructions. Fork into a bowl and stir in the rest of the ingredients, reserving a little of the halloumi and parsley.
  4. Fill the pepper halves with the rice mixture and top with the tomatoes and reserved halloumi. Return to the oven for 15-20 mins or until the halloumi is golden. Scatter with the remaining parsley to serve.
