  • 4 peppers, halved lengthways through the stalk and deseeded



    Also known as capsicums, bell peppers, sweet peppers or by their colours, for example red and…

  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to drizzle
  • 2 x 125g balls mozzarella, sliced
  • 2 tbsp black olive, chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped oregano



    Closely related to marjoram, of which it is the wild equivalent, oregano has a coarser, more…

  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed


  1. Heat the barbecue or griddle pan to hot. Rub the outside of the peppers all over with the olive oil.

  2. Stuff the peppers with the mozzarella, olives, oregano and garlic, and drizzle with a touch more olive oil, if you like.

  3. Pop on the barbecue, stuffed-side up for 12-15 mins until the pepper is nicely charred (or roast in the oven at 220C/200C fan/gas 7 for the same amount of time).

Just wondering, could I use brie or chedder as a replacement for the mozzerella

Really nice :) I used halloumi cheese and added chorizo and olives though next time I will leave out the chorizo sausage. To be repeated :)

Did them on a barbecue and they went down very well and easy to make in advance

Not a big fan of olives or oregano--left them out but doubled the garlic. Cooked for the last 5 minutes under the broiler, cheese got deliciously burnt and bubbly. Will definitely be making it again.

I found the flavours really bland, bit of a disappointment as expensive ingredients.

Cooked it in the oven, and served it with saute potatoes and runner beans. A definite hit and will cook it again.
