RECIPE BACKSTORY
This is in a book called "low-fat cook book, which is a very small book, which was given to me as a Christmas present from a flatmate. i did all the recipes in the book one year and found some recipes that i loved and some I did not. This one is easy to prepare and cook. How finely you chop the veggies is up to you. In this picture, i have cut very big chunks of pepper, however I would recommend chopping it a bit smaller.
