Cook’s tips
To remove the soufflés from the ramekins, run a knife around the edge.

To roast peppers, cut in half and remove the seeds. Place skin side up under a preheated hot grill, and cook until the skins have blackened. Place in a polythene bag and allow to cool, then pull off the skins. Alternatively you can use ready roasted peppers in jars.
