  • 4 red peppers
  • 2 x 250g pouches cooked tomato rice (we used Tilda Rizazz Mediterranean Tomato)



    Rice is a grain, the seed of a type of grass, which is the most widely grown and the most…

  • 2 tbsp pesto



    Pesto is a generic Italian name for any sauce made by pounding ingredients together.


  • handful pitted black olives, chopped
  • 200g goat's cheese, sliced


  1. Use a small knife to cut the top out of 4 red peppers, then scoop out the seeds. Sit the peppers on a plate, cut-side up, and cook in the microwave on High for 5-6 mins until they have wilted and softened.

  2. While the peppers are cooking, mix two 250g pouches cooked tomato rice together with 2 tbsp pesto and a handful of chopped pitted black olives and 140g of the sliced goat's cheese.

  3. Scoop the rice, pesto, olives and goat's cheese mix into the peppers, top with the remaining 60g sliced goat’s cheese and continue to cook for 8-10 mins.

This has become a staple 'quick meal' in our household and is thoroughly enjoyed every time! I use the Uncle Ben's Tomato rice also and low-fat goat's cheese!

This was lovely, though as I was only having two peppers and used rice that took two mins. in the microwave, really only needed to place them in the microwave for 4mins after they were already cooked, and used the top of the pepper as a makeshift lid. Delicious, quick and perfect with a rocket salad.

Very easy to make and quick too. I finished mine off in the oven as another reader suggested. Delicious!

I made this tonight but used brown rice and a mix of cheddar and an Italian hard cheese. It was delicious. Was going to be just a starter but I was too full to have much else afterwards. Even my fussy husband liked it. I will definitely make again.

Very easy and tasty - must get bigger peppers next time as the filling was piled up high and falling everywhere!
