A fun way to get kids eating a whole bunch of vegetables, without much cleaning up! I learned this recipe while I was eating mostly raw, but I wouldn't recommend this for children, so add in some of the optional extras.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 large bell peppers, halved and membrane and seeded
  • 2 cups finely diced raw vegetables (such as tomato, mushrooms, corn kernels, bell pepper, cucumber, carrot)
  • diced low-fat cheese (optional) or raw unsalted nuts (optional) or seeds (optional) or diced ham (optional) or cooked meat (optional) or diced marinated tofu (optional) or tinned beans (optional) or cooked rice (optional) or pasta (optional)


  1. Fill the bell pepper 'bowls' with the mixed vegetables and other optional extras. Serve!

*Reviewed PAC Fall 07* Great idea and simple to prepare. We used ours as a side salad (made 4 sides). The kids thought it was great and helped put the 'bowls' together. Would make a great light meal on its own. Photo also to be posted
