Adding torn ciabatta to this Mediterranean-style filling of anchovies, olives and artichokes means it soaks up the salty flavours as the peppers roast. Serve with salad for an easy vegetarian dinner.

Ingredients

  • 4 red/yellow peppers, cut in half, seeds and white membrane removed
  • 50g tin anchovy fillets in olive oil (oil reserved)
  • 75g pitted black olives, sliced
  • 50g marinated chargrilled artichokes, halved
  • 3 slices ciabatta (about 45g), roughly torn
  • 35g parmesan, grated
  • Fresh basil leaves (optional)
  • Green salad to serve

Method

  1. Heat the grill to high. Arrange the peppers cut-side down on a foil-lined baking tray. Brush with the anchovy oil, then grill for 5 minutes until lightly charred. Remove. Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6.
  2. Turn the peppers over, then divide the olives, artichokes and ciabatta among each half, finishing with the anchovies and a sprinkle of the parmesan. Bake for 20-25 minutes until soft and juicy. Serve scattered with basil, with a green salad.

  1. For an even simpler (gluten-free) dish, swap the olives, artichokes and ciabatta for halved cherry tomatoes. Or cook the peppers on the barbecue, half-wrapped in foil at step 2 – it adds a fabulous smoky flavour.

  1. I really enjoyed these peppers, the roasting of them makes them so sweet and flavourful, it really concentrates the taste, I roasted mine for about 20 minutes rather than grilling as I just prefer to do them that way. A winning starter or side dish, they also taste great if you eat them at room temperature the next day (leave the croutons off if you are preparing in advance. I can’t get enough of these!
