6 Capsicum Recipes I'm Obsessed With

When I was a kid it took me a while to figure out what was meant when American's said 'peppers'. I now realise it no longer means black pepper or chilli, but capsicum. Oh, the things you learn in adolescence. Anywho, I hope you enjoy this capsicum sprayed' listicle.

1. Grilled Mushrooms and Capsicum Soft Tacos

Tex-Mex food is ideal for creating meat-free family meals. These fajita-style wraps team grilled capsicum with mushrooms, corn and our special taco seasoning for a delicious DIY assembly.

2. Stuffed Capsicum with Couscous and Herb Oil

Capsicums are an excellent source of vitamin C which makes them a great addition to your diet in summer when oranges are not in season. Here, we've filled them with a fluffy couscous mixture that's tossed with charred broccolini and shallot and finished it off with a drizzling of garlicky herb oil.

3. Beef Fajitas with Red Capsicum and Sweetcorn and Tomato Salsa.

Grab the sombreros and maracas and be transported to Mexico with these spice-filled beef fajitas. The beef is coated in traditional Mexican spices and then flash-fried in a pan. Pop it on a tortilla with some aioli and refreshing corn salsa, wrap it all up and devour!

4. Roasted Stuffed Capsicum with Spiced Couscous

Stuffed vegetables are a common appearance in Middle Eastern cooking and here we use sweet red capsicums as a vessel which are not only packed with vitamin C, but are at their peak during the summer. We've filled it with a fragrant lemon and cinnamon couscous which makes this dish substantial and satisfying.

5. Haloumi and Charred Capsicum Burgers with Sweet Potato Wedges
