Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed Peppers

What to do with your leftover meat from your Bolognese? Tasty stuffed peppers, of course!

I experimented with these, and I am so glad I did because they turned out to be delicious! They are quick to make, and a great way to not waste food (win!).

*This recipe can be adapted for the veggies out there too; you can stuff the peppers with just the veg, or with a cheese e.g. feta/goats cheese, or add some tofu.


  • x 2 halves of a pepper (the amount you make is up to you!)
  • x 4 button Mushrooms
  • x 1/2 a Red Onion
  • x3 Asparagus Tips
  • x 1/4 Courgette
  • Olive Oil
  • Garlic Granules
  • Ground Black Pepper
  • Your leftover meat


Step 1:

  • Heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius, and chop your vegetables finely.
  • Cook the veg in a pan with a dash of oil, garlic and pepper.

Step 2:

  • Once the veg starts to soften add your leftover meat to the pan and cook this for approx. 4-5 minutes.

step 2

Step 3:

  • Fill the peppers with the cooked veg and meat, and put in the oven for 10 minutes.


Step 4:

  • After 10 minutes the peppers should be hot and ready to eat!

Serving suggestions:

– On a bed of lettuce (if you like a mix of hot and cold together)
– Melt some grated cheese (cheddar or mozzarella) on the top to seal the meat and veg in
– As a side with a salad
– Add some rice to the mix if you fancy a carb (for this you may want to use a whole pepper and fill it with the veg, meat, and rice)
– Or simply have the rice as a side!
