Recipe for Red Pepper and Feta Rolls With Olives

This recipe makes use of red peppers which is one of the best vegetables to include in a healthy diet because red pepper has practically fat, is calorie-free and is absolutely laden with vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, and folic acid. With something this virtuous, you can afford to have something a bit more indulgent like the Feta. If you can’t get feta, use a crumbly goat cheese.
