Hello and welcome to my blog. Today i am revisiting a recipe i used to have regularly. I got the recipe from the BBC’s Good Food superhealthy suppers recipe book.

The ingredients are as following:

1 each of Red, yellow and green bell peppers

3 Courgettes

Shallots

Lamb

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Grounded Spicies

Coriander

Cumin

Cayenne pepper

All the ingredients and finished product in one picture

I made a few changes in that instead of paprika i use cayenne pepper instead. I also did not include the coriander leaves and substitutes vegetable stock for lamb stock from the steamed lamb. FACT: From my research, i know that vegetables such as red bell pepper and tomorrow to name but a few have high levels of lycopen which is good for us especially the skin.

Dinner is served. I had this with brown rice, making this meal nutrition packed 3 of 5 a day meal for lunch or dinner. In past i believe i have had it with bulgur and couscous.

You can pick and choose which vegetables you want to add or leave out. If you do try this, let me know your thought.

Until next time, bon appetit.
