Cauliflower and Beef Stuffed Peppers

 

Cauliflower and Beef Stuffed Peppers
Serves 6
These stuffed peppers are perfect for a filling, yet low-carb and gluten-free dinner. My husband found this recipe online a while ago, made them several times, and then totally lost the link. We now make them with a blurry memory of what the recipe actually said and adjust to our liking. This is perfect for one of those evenings when you didn't get enough lunch! They are surprisingly satisfying and deceivingly healthy! Don't tell your picky eaters that there is cauliflower in them and they will never know...

Ingredients
  1. - 5-6 Bell Peppers, any color you like
  2. – 1 Lb. Grass-fed ground beef
  3. – 1 Medium yellow onion, chopped
  4. – 3 Garlic cloves, chopped
  5. - 1 head Cauliflower
  6. - 1 TBSP Chili powder
  7. - 1 TBSP Cumin
  8. - 1 TBSP Oregano
  9. - 1 can Tomato Paste (6 oz)
  10. - Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  11. - Cilantro (Optional)
  12. - Sour cream (Optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cut the tops off of the Bell Peppers to remove stem and all seeds. Then cut the Peppers in half lengthwise. Line them all in a 9by13 pan.
  3. Cut the cauliflower into florets and then pulse in a food processor or blender until it resembles the size of rice. Set to the side for later use
  4. Sauté the chopped onion in a large pot, remove from pot once translucent and starting to brown. Set to the side
  5. Brown the beef until cooked through in the same pot. Dump the cauliflower rice, sautéed onion, and garlic into the pot and stir around until the cauliflower begins to soften
  6. Add all spices and tomato paste to the beef/cauliflower mixture, stir well and let toast for about 30 seconds
  7. Take a spoon and fill each of the Bell Pepper halves with the filling, to the brim. Sprinkle with cheese
  8. Put the whole pan in the oven and let them warm through until the peppers are tender, but still have a slight bite, 30-45 minutes. You will probably have to play with this a couple times to see how fast your oven cooks the peppers through and how crunchy your family likes their peppers
  9. Serve with sour cream, chopped cilantro and a side salad to make it a delicious and well-balanced meal!
