Cooking with CBeebies – Pepper Boats

Thanks to CBeebies, Miss D insisted this weekend that she wanted to eat pepper boats, after seeing the recipe on I Can Cook With You….

Luckily, I had most of the ingredients, so with a small substitution I let her try to make it – the great thing was that she could do almost all of the preparation herself.

You need the following:

  • 1 pepper
  • 6 tomatoes
  • tablespoon of pine nuts
  • small glug of olive oil
  • basil leaves
  • goats cheese (I changed this to cheddar as it was all I had!)
  • pinch of black pepper (optional)

Start by ‘popping’ the pepper – push the stalk into the pepper, then tear open and tap out the seeds.

Chop the tomatoes in a bowl (this is where I helped), then pour in the oil and pine nuts, tear in the basil (and black pepper if you want it) and give a good mix.

Spoon the mixture into the peppers and crumble the cheese over the top.

Bake in the oven for around 30 minutes, or until the peppers are soft and the cheese has melted.

She really enjoyed making these, because she needed minimal help and she wolfed them down as soon as they were cool enough!
