Peppers with chick peas and gorgonzola - a Nigel Slater dish for February

Farmersgirl Kitchen has launched 'Dish of the Month' which involves choosing one Nigel Slater recipe per month to cook and then writing a blog post about it. 

Last weekend I was looking through The Observer and I spotted a a recipe called 'peppers with cannellini and gorgonzola' in an article called 'Nigel Slater's bright and cheerful winter recipes' (17 February 2013)

This looked like a lovely way of making a light lunch with very little effort so I thought I'd give it a go. I actually made 'Peppers with chick peas and gorgonzola', because I prefer chick peas to cannellini beans.  

Here are the ingredients for two portions:


With the help of my little boy, I stuffed the peppers with a mixture of the cheese, mushed-up chick peas and chopped chives before cooking in the oven at 180 degrees C for an hour and a quarter.


This worked pretty well with chick peas, and both H and I enjoyed eating the end result for lunch today. The peppers were soft and sweet and the gorgonzola made a sauce in amongst the chick peas.

I will definitely cook this again soon.



PS I think my friend Emily who blogs at amummytoo will like this dish, so I'm also joining up with her Recipe of the Week linky.

    1. Exactly! I would never have thought to try this if I hadn't read the article in The Observer last weekend.

  2. My perfect sort of lunch, I love roasted peppers. I always use a rice filling but love the chick pea idea.

    1. I'm a big fan of roasted peppers too. And of course with tinned chick peas you don't have to cook them first unlike rice.

      I love your Baklava too!
