I started this thread as a spin-off from the salads thread where a discussion on peppers was taking place.
There are many varieties of peppers and a primary feature of peppers is how hot they are. This is measured in Scoville Heat Units (SHU). SHUs range from 0 for bell peppers to over...
This economical dish uses tinned sardines and makes a lovely light lunch. I char grilled the pepper myself but for a short-cut, use ready prepared from a jar. If at all possible use sardines in spring water (not oil). The oil is apt to soak into the pastry and make it soggy. Make sure that the...

N.B. I know peppers are technically a fruit but they are generally regarded as a veg - so I've put this...
This vegetarian dish is fairly straightforward and fast to make, providing you have already cooked the rice. The quantities make one serving but are easily multiplied up to feed more. The pickled red onion is a lovely contrast to the nutty tasting rice and the sweet pepper and corn. Use...
