Foodie Friday | Paleo Stuffed Peppers

kasandrinos organic extra virgin greek olive oil

My husband gets all the credit for introducing me to his delicious stuffed peppers.  His version includes rice and feta cheese, but I’ve modified them a little to be dairy-free and grain-free for those with food sensitivities.  This is my go-to meal anytime I need a quick dinner that won’t take much time to prep!

Ingredients:

  • 4 bell peppers – I prefer to use the red and orange ones for a little more flavor and color
  • 1 lb of ground meat – I’ve used beef, lamb, bison, chicken, and turkey with good results)
  • 16 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon Cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon Chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp oregano

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Brown the meat, drain the grease, then set aside.  Add 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil to saute the onion and garlic until slightly caramelized.  Add in the meat, tomatoes and spices, and simmer for about 5 minutes until flavors are well-mixed.

Slice the peppers in half and remove all seeds.   Fill each half with the meat mixture then place in the oven for 30-40 minutes.

Optional: Top with cashew cheese, cilantro, and avocado slices.

Bon appetit!

Thanks for reading and I hope this helps you make an easy dinner sometime soon.
