Recently we had the situation where we had friends coming round at short notice, and I had to raid the fridge to find something to give them. Luckily, I happened to have some sweet baby peppers in the fridge, and also some goats cheese, and so I rustled up some Stuffed Peppers with Goats Cheese for us all to enjoy. Stuffed Peppers are a great dish as there are lots of ways you can vary them. You could use larger peppers, or small baby peppers, but I think the sweeter baby peppers taste nicer. You can also vary the herbs and spices, and types of cheese that you use too, so they are quite versatile.
Here is the recipe below. As this was a quick recipe on the hop I didn't have time to take any fancy pictures, but I have included a quick snap I took below.
Let me know what you think! What is your favourite stuffed pepper filling?

- Using a teaspoon, scoop the cheese mixture into the peppers, pressing down with your fingers to ensure the pepper is fully stuffed.
