It is so easy to fall into the same patterns, buy the same things at the supermarket and cook similar meals each week, with only a tiny change here and there. Even if you find yourself getting utterly bored with what you are eating, finding new recipes is all too often a hassle and coming out of your ordinary routine takes initially always more time. Join me this summer is trying out simple, sunny, stunning recipes that are also healthy options. Try something different for variety in your diet.
The recipe below can be a lovely summer main meal or eaten alongside BBQ meat or fish.
4 red, orange or yellow peppers, halved lengthways, deseeded and retaining stalk
1 red onion, peeled and diced
300g feta cheese, crumbled/cubed into 5mm-1cm pieces

25g capers, drained and chopped (optional)

In a large bowl mix together the feta, onions, tomatoes, capers (if using) and mint and season with salt and pepper and a pinch of sugar. Divide this mixture between the pepper halves. Top this with the breadcrumbs and drizzle with olive oil.
