Using store-cupboard and freezer ingredients, this red pepper and blue cheese terrine involves no cooking and makes the perfect dinner party starter. It is really easy to prepare, but looks so impressive topped with red peppers and served alongside tomatoes, and basil. Enjoy as a simple lunch or rustle up a batch in advance for when you have friends over for supper.

Pick up frozen, grilled aubergine slices in the freezer section of Waitrose or Ocado and use a jar of roasted peppers for ease - this recipe is all about a simple, easy way to get a great plate of food up in minutes. We're not fussy when it comes to cooking all the steps ourselves sometimes, if it saves time and effort.

The tangy balsamic glaze and blue cheese taste amazing with the sweet red peppers and aubergine. All it needs is some crusty bread or a fresh side salad to bulk out the tomatoes and basil on the side.
