Suitable for vegetarians


1. Preheat a char-grill pan or grill. Char-grill or grill the courgette, red onion and pepper until soft and tender. You may have to do this in batches.

2. Warm both sides of the focaccia for a few moments in the char-grill pan or under the grill, then pile the grilled vegetables on top.

3. Share the Stilton between the focaccia and garnish with a few salad leaves. Season with a little black pepper, then serve.

Cook's tip: To make mini versions to serve as canapés, split the focaccia through the middle and fill with the grilled vegetables, Stilton and salad leaves. Sandwich together, then slice into bite-size squares and spear with cocktail sticks.
