Need a recipe using a green bell pepper, tomato, garlic cloves... or any of those. Any ideas?

I have a green bell pepper and a tomato that have been in my fridge for a few days. I dont want them to go bad but cant really think of anything besides spaghetti to make with it. What are some good recipes to make using these vegetables?

    Well i love making stuffted peppers and always goes down well at dinner parties.

    you will need:


    3 garlic cloves

    1 large onion

    Bay leaf

    2 fresh basil leaves

    pepper cut in half from the middle of the stalk down (with seeds and stalk removed)

    olive oil

    salt & pepper

    1 large jar of passata sauce (sived tomatoes)

    fresh parmesan

    x2 mozzarella

    fresh breadcrumbs (made from stale bread in food processor) or toast put in food processor, if you dont have stale bread.

    1 beaten egg

    chili power (optional)

    a deep oven dish

    1. make your sauce by chopping onion and garlic and adding to pan with oilve oil. fry until soft, dont burn. add passata and stir, add bay leaf, and basil and salt and pepper, and some chili power if you like and leave to cook for bout 20-30 mins on mid heat.

    2. in frying pan cook mince on its own, and drain excess fat that comes out. (I hate it when people leave the fatty liquid and not drain it)

    Wait until cooked and leave to cool.

    3. get a bowl and add cooled mince. dice up the mozzarelle in small cubes and add in the bowl with the mince.

    4. grate some fresh parmesan, be generous and add to the mixture in bowl.

    5. add beaten egg in bowl along with breadcrumbs and mix.

    6. when tomato sauce is done, add a coupe of spoons into your mince mixture. stir all ingredients in bowl.

    7. put your pepper halves into a deep oven tray. season with a bit of salt in the pepper halves.

    8. add some sauce that you made in each pepper covering the bottom of it.

    9. spoon the mince mixture in the pepper up to the top.

    10. add more sauce on top of each pepper and sprinkle with parmesan.

    11. put some water half way up in the bottom of the oven tray, this helps peppers to cook when they are in the oven.

    12. place in oven for about 20-30 mins.

    Take an onion and chop off about 1/4 of it. Dice this up small and fry in olive oil. Chop the tomato and add it to the pan with the onion. Turn the heat down low. Add about 2 tablespoons of cooked rice to the pan. Add salt, pepper and some herbs. Remove the pan from the heat.

    Take the green paper, cut it in half, remove the seeds and wash it. Spoon the mixture from the pan into the green pepper. Wrap the filled halves in foil and bake in a hot oven for 15 mins. After 15 mins, unwrap the pepper halves, put some grated cheese on top and put back in the oven for 5 mins.

    This is really good with a side salad and french fries or a side salad and garlic bread.

    rustic tomato soup Ingredients: Fresh-picked ripe organic tomatoes: a double handful; or about 9 or 10 medium-sized; or about a pound and a half. Basil: a handful of leaves. Bread: 8-to-16 ounces; should be a day or two old and robust (something solid that can hold its shape while it changes alchemically into a tomato-infused dumpling). Garlic: several cloves; 3 or 12 or what you will. Olive oil: 5 tablespoons. Onion: 1. Spices: pinch of mace, nutmeg, cloves. Vegetable stock (broth): an imperial quart (5 cups or 40 ounces). Some people add a tablespoon of tomato paste or a chopped-up green pepper. Some people add salt, black pepper, a half teaspoon of chile. Method: Heat a deep big frying pan or soup pot containing the olive oil. Peel and chop the onion; sauté in half the olive oil. Peel the garlic cloves. Optionally crush or chop them. Add to onion and continue sautéing. Boil a bowl of water. Submerge the tomatoes (a few at a time) so that their skins peel off easily. Peel the tomatoes; optionally cut out the seeds; chop tomato flesh. Remember to stir the onions and garlic so they don't burn. When onions have become slightly translucent, add chopped tomatoes and spices. Simmer for a quarter hour or until mixture has thickened a little. Add (prefereably heated) stock; bring all to boil for 2 minutes. Break the bread into 1" chunks and stir into the soup. Simmer for 5-10 minutes. Wash and shred a handful of basil leaves; stir into the soup. Stir in the rest of the olive oil. Let the soup meditate for 5 minutes so that the flavors mingle in a calm and enlightened manner.

    Pizza would be great!

    You could use the tomato for sauce or as a great topping.

    Rub the garlic on the crust with olive oil and in the sauce.

    Add meat leave it alone.

    Cut the pepper fairly fine.

    Good luck.

    Salsa! Just get come kind of chips to go with it. it'd be super easy.

    3 medium tomatoes, cut into chunks

    1 medium green bell pepper, seeded and cut into chunks

    1 scallion, with top, cut into large pieces

    2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, optional

    1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced (include seeds for a hotter salsa)

    1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice

    1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

    instead of a scallion you couls use onion. it tastes the same pretty much

    If you have a nice bread you could lightly saute the pepper and tomato and crush the garlic w/ some olive oil on the bread (lightly bake until golden together in oven). Some basil would be excellent too. = nice appetizer/ snack. yummo

    Start a pot of boiling water.

    Cut green bell pepper into pieces (rings or chopped) and add to boiling water.

    Do same with Tomato.

    Do same with garlic cloves.

    After 15 minutes, pour into big bowl and eat like soup. It should be good :D
