Serves 4


  • 4 peppers, 2 yellow, 2 red

  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander


  • Preheat the oven to 200oC, gas mark 6.
  • Halve the peppers lengthways through the stalk and remove the seeds. Place cut side up on a baking tray.
  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the onion, courgette and garlic for 5-6 minutes. Add the rice, mixed herbs and cherry tomatoes and cook for 1-2 minutes.

Cook’s tip

Use flavoured rice such as coconut rice instead of plain basmati for an extra flavour boost. Try swapping Classic dressing for the Light Salad Dressing.
