Peach and Pepper Pasta Salad


This is one of those highly colourful dishes that would be nice to paint if you didn’t feel like eating! It’s great as a picnic dish or for a meal outside in the garden. It’s totally flexible and I would suggest just being creative and adding whatever you feel like. I always think there’s less room for serious error with vegan cooking; the worst that can happen is that your combination of flavours isn’t quite how you expected it.

Ingredients for peach and pepper pasta salad (serves 2):

– Enough pasta for two people (150g)?

– Some olive oil

– 2 green peppers

– A tin of peaches

– A little basil

– Juice of 1/2 lemon

– A good handful of salted nuts (e.g. pistachios)

Optional: a few seeds e.g. sunflower


1. Add the pasta to a pan of boiling water and add a splash of olive oil. Simmer until soft/al dente or however you like it.

2. Meanwhile, chop the pepper and peaches (if they’re halves rather than slices). Tear up a few basil leaves.

3. When the pasta is ready, drain and run under a little cold water to refresh it.

4. Add all the ingredients to the pasta and stir together. Enjoy the great visual effect!
