A satisfying vegetarian supper that packs in 4 of your 5-a-day. Stuff peppers with cream cheese, beans, aubergine and feta



Total time

35 minutes




Dinner, Appetiser


  • 2 peppers (large, halved, deseeded but stalks left on)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 400 g can chopped tomato
  • 1 red onion (halved and sliced)
  • 1 garlic clove (shredded)
  • 1 red chilli (deseeded and finely chopped)
  • 1 aubergine (small, cut into small cubes)
  • 220 g can kidney bean (don't drain them)
  • bunch coriander (small, chopped)
  • 1 egg (large)
  • 25 g low-fat feta cheese (shredded)
  • 50 g low-fat fromage frais
  • 2 handfuls rocket
  • lime wedges (for squeezing over)


  1. Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Place the pepper halves in a shallow baking dish, skin-side up, and roast for 15-20 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, tip the spices into a pan and warm briefly to release their flavour. Tip in the tomatoes and stir in the onion, garlic, chilli, aubergine and kidney beans with their juice. Cover the pan and cook for 20 mins, stirring occasionally. Try not to add any extra liquid; the mixture should be quite dry. Stir in the coriander.
  3. Meanwhile, beat the egg with the feta and fromage frais. Turn the peppers over and pile the aubergine mixture into each one, packing it down as much as you can. Top with the feta mixture and return to the oven for 10 mins more until the topping has lightly set. Don’t worry if some of it flows off, as it will just set in the dish. Serve the peppers on the rocket with lime wedges for squeezing over.
