Serves: 2 Calories: 450
Ingredients2 peppers, any colour, halved and sliced
1 small red onion, cut into thin wedges
2 tsp olive oil
4 slices granary bread
125g sliced light mozzarella cheese
1 pinch ground black pepper
1 handful mixed salad leaves
1400 and 1600 plans
Add 1 x 80g salad
Method1. Preheat the grill. Arrange the peppers on a baking sheet with the red onion. Sprinkle with the olive oil, then grill until soft and lightly browned - about 6-8 minutes. Look out for 'everyday' ranges of peppers, which are more economical to buy.
2. Toast the slices of bread and share the pepper mixture between them. Arrange the mozzarella cheese on top, then return to the grill for 1-2 minutes, until the cheese begins to melt. Serve with 1 x 80g portion of salad.
The pepper, onion and mozzarella mixture makes a delicious filling for warmed wholemeal pitta breads.
