Of course fresh is best but there are times when it is handy to have some frozen vegetables (or tinned) handy just in case ...
This recipe idea comes from Sainsburys so of course highlights their frozen vegetable range, but I'm sure at a supermarket near you ... similar packets are available.
So how about a dish of grilled vegetables topped with grated cheese, it can make a delicious vegetarian starter ... or of course you could increase the amount and enjoy as a light lunch ... the possibilities are endless.
400g frozen chargrilled Mediterranean vegetables
400g frozen mixed peppers
2 tsp frozen chopped garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
25g Italian hard cheese, grated
1. Preheat the grill to high and line the grill pan with foil.
2. In a bowl, toss together the chargrilled vegetables, mixed peppers, garlic and oil. Transfer to the prepared grill pan and grill for 10 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking.
3. Transfer to a serving platter and serve scattered with the grated cheese.
Each serving provides:
6.6g carbohydrate 7.6g fibre 4.6g protein
Sshh I'll not tell anyone it's a cheats dish - will you?
All the best Jan
I love ripe bell peppers! That looks delicious! Enjoy your day!
it looks so delicious as i got water in my mouth i just love vegetables on my table ,

It's a lovely colourful dish. I find food so much more appetising if it looks good as well as tastes good.
Jan, I copied this recipe...sounds good for any time. Blessings to you, hope all is well. xoxo,Susie
Oh wow, does that ever sound good!!!!!!
Que beleza este prato de vegetais.
Um abraço e boa Terça-Feira.
hehehe no....but you see, i would really cheat and put this over pasta. what's wrong with me???
This dish looks so delicious, Jan. I just love Mediterranean food. I heard that in some countries, the dinner hour will last up to four hours. That's how much they enjoy and appreciate their meal!
That sounds ok but for my own taste buds I would add a few chilli peppers and double the garlic! Where's the plonk too?
I confess...I've done that! This recipe is delicious. I'm not surprised. You share the most wonderful things.
No, I won't tell. It looks yummy. I agree with Debbie. : )
It looks great, and I always love any recipe that is a "cheat!"
Many thanks to you all for your comments ...
Diane - peppers used fresh are fabulous, and I prefer that every time - but I think at times to use frozen or tinned can help with our busy lives.
Baili - yes, vegetables are lovely aren't they and can look so colourful on our plates, and of course so tasty and nutritious too
Jo - we do also eat with our eyes! That may seem strange but if a plate of food looks pleasing to our eye we are more encouraged to tuck in and enjoy it.
Susie - a warm welcome to the low carb diabetic blog. Peppers are great to eat, glad you liked the idea and look of this dish
Tessa - glad you liked it
Francisco - os legumes são saborosos ... many thanks for your comment, I hope my translation is ok
Debbie - oooh! sometimes we all cheat in our cooking!
Sheri - Mediterranean food is great isn't it and to sit with family/friends and thoroughly enjoy the meal and company is just great
Phil - yes, why not add a few chilli peppers and a little more garlic, whatever suits your taste. "Where's the plonk too?" - I think it's still chilling in the fridge lol!
Martha - I think we have all 'cheated' from time to time, glad you liked the recipe idea
Karen - you agreed with Debbie!!! I'll have to say oooh! to you too! but sometimes a little cheat in cooking ...
Amy - well if it's ok for the 'big named chefs/cooks' it must be ok for us to!
Thanks once again everyone for taking time to share your thoughts
All the best Jan
