23rd December

A long time ago, my mum was in hospital for her Christmas dinner, she said it was the best Christmas because not only had she just had a baby but she didn’t have to cook the turkey! Whether Christmas dinner fills you with dread or makes you excited, there is often the question of what you should do with the leftover turkey. Today’s vegetable will help you out.

Bright and vibrant, these vegetables are incredibly versatile. They can be used in salads, stir fries, soups, stews, pasta sauces, with dips and you can even stuff them. Your recipe for today was brought to you by Change4Life which has a host of recipes for you to try. You can use up some leftover Christmas turkey if you save these recipes for Boxing Day (as long as you cooked your turkey properly, made sure it cooled within 90 minutes and went in the fridge and make sure it is reheated thoroughly)

Note, if you are using cooked turkey, you don’t need to cook it again in the dish so just add it with the tomatoes and then make sure the peppers are cooked straight away – not prepared in advance.
