My husband is trying a low carb diet so I hunted up recipes that would work... not a lot of luck, so I combined and reworked a couple of recipes and this is what I came up with. Everyone that has had them raves about them... even my picky kids. It is a sure fire way to get a few veggies into little ones lol. You may add any veggie you like and vary the amounts this is an easy dinner that tastes great.

How to Make Low-Carb Stuffed Peppers

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre-heat oven 350. Cut tops off of the bell peppers reserve for filling remove seeds and invert in a baking dish, cover in foil and bake for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Brown your meat, and finely dice remaining bell pepper pieces and onions while meat is cooking. Add bell peppers, onions and garlic while meat finishes browning.
  3. Once your mixture is completely brown add shredded carrots, mushrooms and tomatoes. Stir and simmer for 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add zucchini, and spinach and simmer until tender.
  5. Add 1/4 cup each of parmesan and mozzarella cheese and simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. Turn inverted peppers over and fill with meat mixture. cover with mozzarella cheese as desired. Bake in oven until cheese is melted and golden.
  7. You may also serve the meat mixture over rice. I make four or 6 peppers depending on how many, there is always mixture left over. I don't really care for the large peppers so I serve the meat mixture over rice (not low carb).
  8. Serve peppers use remaining parmesan cheese as desired.
