Easy Peasy Paleo Peppers

Peppers2

This is a super-easy recipe for paleo stuffed peppers, and it’s delicious!

Ingredients

  • 2-3 lbs ground turkey (or chicken or beef or lamb)
  • 8-10 red peppers
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 2 onions
  • Optional: mushrooms
  • Spices: paprika, cayenne, parsley, basil
  • 4 cloves of garlic, crushed/diced
  • Tomato sauce (about 1/2 jar; check ingredients for added sugar!)

Directions

  1. Brown ground turkey in a skillet. Add onions.
  2. While turkey is cooking, “rice” the cauliflower. You have a few options for methods: you can use a cheese grater, a “jack-chop” (what I did), a food processor, or just a knife! You want the cauliflower a little larger than your typical rice, so don’t crush it to the point of getting mushy.
  3. Add the cauliflower and garlic to the turkey. Turn down the heat.
  4. While the “stuffing” is cooking, prepare the peppers: slice the top off, and cut them down the middle (vertical-wise). Remove the insides and lay out on a lined pan.
  5. Once the stuffing is done, mix in the tomato sauce, and carefully spoon it all into the peppers. Make sure it’s tight, and it will brown up nicely!
  6. Cook at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.

We thought they were delicious, and we even had extra filling!
