Wednesday Recipe no 1.

Rather than posting my daily menu for my Eat well for £20 a week challenge, I will post a favourite recipe from the week each Wednesday (tag: Wed-recipe)

Stuffed Peppers
Red peppers are probably best, but I've used yellow today, because that's what I have!

Ingredients per person:
1 pepper
1 cherry or ½ a larger tomato
½ tin tuna (drained)
A little finely chopped garlic or spring onion (optional)
Fresh basil leaves (optional)
Olive oil (or oil from drained tuna if it is in sunflower oil)

Cut the pepper in half, lengthwise, de-seed and lay in a roasting tin.
Spoon in the tuna.
Add halved cherry tomatoes, or slices of tomato and garlic or spring onion - finely chopped.
Drizzle with olive oil (or oil from tuna)
Season with salt & black pepper.
Roast in oven 180 C for about 45 mins until pepper is cooked through /soft.

Dress with fresh, torn basil leaves.
Delicious hot, warm or cold.

Serve one half as a starter or a whole pepper per person, with a green salad and/or rice (to soak up the lovely juices) as a main course.

Splash out on anchovy fillets (2 laid in a cross on top of each half pepper) if you're feeling flush!!

Pepper, 20p (from market.) Half tin of tuna, 55p. 1/2 tomato 5p. Rice, 15p per portion. (Olive oil, garlic, basil, green salad negligible cost)
Total: 95p per person.
