Had to use up some vegetables in my fridge up, if you’re like me, I hate waste, and I buy loads thinking I’m going to be good this week and have veg every day….some days that doesn’t work out so I’m left with a lot. I decided to do something I’ve never tried before and simply just mash it all up. Wanted to add some flavour and decided a Mediterranean flavour should be o.k.
Makes 1 Pepper
1 x Orange Pepper – Roasted and cut in half
2 x Carrots
Handful Broccoli (approx 50g)
30g Green Beans – chopped
2 tbsp Tomato Passata (I had some left in my fridge thought I’d chuck in it to help bind)
1 tsp basil
1 tsp spiced crushed red pepper (my fav from Costco), this gives a lovely kick!
- Pre-heat oven to 220 deg. Cut pepper in half and spray with oil, place in a foil lined baking tin and bake in oven for 20 minutes.
- Cook vegetables either boil or steam, I always steam as it’s healthier and much more tastier.
- Once vegetables are cooked, place in a food processor or blender with the passata and herbs n spices until mix through.
- Once peppers are ready remove from oven and fill with the veg mix. Serve. Yummy!
Of course you can tailor to your own tastes with any vegetable and any type of spice and herbs, the list is endless.
I do like it when you get a success in the kitchen! Happy Days!
