Simple stuffed red peppers served with Kefir Cheese

Only four ingredients, and an optional fifth to garnish

Stuffed peppers are a wonderfully versatile dish. They’re a great vegetarian main alongside lentils or rice and salad, and even work well as a side dish with chicken.

Easy to prepare and they only take 30 minutes to make. These stuffed roasted peppers are packed with protein and contribute towards your 5 a day.

For the nights when you want to impress, top the peppers with a sprinkling of pomegranate arils (also known as pomegranate seeds) to garnish.

Kefir Cheese is our unique combination of Kefir and cheese curd, making a healthier and tastier alternative for cottage or cream cheese that’s creamy, yet light and bursting with flavour. Because our cheese contains billions of live gut-friendly bacteria, if it’s cooked then the beneficial bacteria will be disabled.
