Feta Stuffed Peppers

Delicious roasted peppers stuffed with plum tomatoes and feta. These Feta Stuffed Peppers are so simple but make a delicious light lunch. 

A simple but delicious dish anyone can make 

These Feta Stuffed Peppers are so incredibly easy to make. You will be able to make these no matter what your cooking ability is. It is just a case of cutting the peppers in half, removing the seeds and stuffing the rest of the ingredients inside. You don’t even need to chop the rest of the ingredients! The plum tomatoes go in whole, feta is best crumbled with your fingers and you can tear the basil. Simple. 

A healthy recipe with fresh ingredients

These peppers are packed with delicious Mediterranean flavours. The fresh ingredients used rely on their juices to make a tasty dressing. I used spray oil to make these even healthier. You can use olive oil if you prefer, however I don’t think spray oil reduces the flavour. 

In the warmer months, it can sometimes get a little monotonous having a salad every day. These are a great alternative that are a essentially a warm salad. If you are looking for salad inspiration, check out my Simple Chicken & Bacon Salad which is anything but boring. 

Something a little bit fancy 

Even though these Feta Stuffed Peppers are really easy to make, they look a little bit special. If you were to present these to someone, I think it definitely looks like you have put a bit of effort in. You don’t need to tell them how easy it was! 

They are great served as a light lunch or starter. If you are serving them as a starter, I would serve half a pepper per person. 

Make these Feta Stuffed Peppers your own

You can customise these Feta Stuffed Peppers to your preferences. You can use whatever colour peppers you have. I personally wouldn’t use green peppers because I think they are less sweet than the other colours. You can also us whichever small tomatoes you like. My favourites are plum tomatoes but cherry tomatoes work really well too. 

Fresh basil is the best for this recipe. If you don’t have any the best alternative would be frozen basil. I have used this before and it is quite handy to keep in the freezer for whenever you need it. I wouldn’t recommend using dried basil though!

    Love your stuffed peppers. So simple, but so delicious. I’m often in danger of over complicating things and most of the time you don’t need to. I’m going to try this.
