Roasted red peppers stuffed with red onion, pepper and tomato rice - this is one of those dishes which tastes much better than it looks. The saffron is optional really, but it does impart a nice flavour and colour. The peppers may be eaten hot or cold, in which case they can be made in advance. After cooling down, they should be kept in the ‘fridge until required.
