I don’t think of stuffed peppers very often. I don’t know why. I think it’s because I never had them growing up.
So I didn’t think of low carb stuffed peppers. Or even low carb vegetarian stuffed peppers.
But then a friend emailed me asking for advice on how to MAKE low carb vegetarian stuffed peppers. And this delicious recipe is what we came up with. 🙂
Low carb vegetarian stuffed peppers are a fabulous way to use up (or hide!) lots of veggies in one delicious, re-heatable dish.
I had a bag of the Trader Joe’s Cauliflower rice that I used for this recipe. If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you or don’t want to buy pre-made cauliflower rice, here is my post on how you can make your own cauliflower rice.
Get creative with this recipe! You can mince up carrots for extra sweetness or (if not vegetarian) add sausages or ground turkey/chicken for extra protein. No holds barred. Go wild.
As wild as one can get with stuffed peppers.
Which .. perhaps.. in YOUR household, can get pretty wild. 🙂
