This was one of those… hmmm I dunno what to have for lunch and it turned out good. It serves 1, and is approx 290 calories and 22g carbs.


• I pepper
• 1/2 onion
• 1/2 courgette
• 1 chilli (optional)
• 2 tbsp tomato puree
• 2 slices bacon
• chilli flakes/salt and pepper to taste
• olive oil
• cherry tomato
• cheese (I used 10g)


Cut pepper in half and scoop out the seeds, place the pepper halves in the oven to pre-bake for 10 mins at 180.

meanwhile cook the bacon (I did mine in the grill as I like it crispy but it could all go in the one pan together with the veg)

chop the onion, courgette and chilli and fry in a little olive oil, once cooked to your taste add the tomato puree and bacon, and season mixing it all together.

Fill the peppers with the mix and add the sliced tomato and cheese on top, back in the oven for 10 mins.

    I was short of time so grilled the peppers under the grill (cut side down) then left the cheese out until last. I only had feta so sliced it as widely as poss … & put on top of the filling once loaded into the peppers.
    Grilled the top of the feta. It doesn’t go golden or bubble like a cheddar type but still delicious.
    Thanks for posting your recipe Izzy

    I just had this for my lunch, and have to say it was delicious. I did however change a bit, I did not use the fresh chilli, or the tomato puree, I took all fat off the bacon and just used a sprinkle of the chilli flakes. I also used Rapeseed oil and 5 cherry tomatoes and it came in at under 200 calories. Blooming lovely lunch though, thanks for sharing.
    Tomorrow for breakfast I might make this for my husband, but use a portobello mushroom and top with a poached egg.
