Stuffed peppers are a classic, and they’re usually filled with things that are not so good for us, like white rice! Not this one!
Check out this easy recipe, and enjoy the fact that this is a low-carb, high-protein meal where you get TWO stuffed peppers for only 130 calories!
You can use this as the base recipe, and change it up for your favorite flavors!
Cut the top off and hollow out your peppers.
Sautee your protein (I used ground turkey, but you can use any lean protein you like – Beyond Meat has a great “beef” crumble that would be awesome in this for a vegan twist!)
I used a shallot, 3 cloves of garlic, and mushrooms for some flavor as well as parsley, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper in the turkey.
You can grate your cauliflower or broccoli to make rice, or if you’re feeling lazy like I was – buy it already riced! Great substitute and adds way more veggies to the meal!
Check out this find that I got at my local natural foods store, lots more veggies!
Stuff the peppers and cook at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
