Stuffed Peppers

Posted by in Paleo, Recipes

Stuffed peppers make a great meal that’s appropriate for any time of the year.  This recipe is different than most of it’s kind because it doesn’t include bread crumbs or rice.  But trust me, it’s equally as delicious.

For the stuffed peppers, you will need:

– 4-5 bell peppers (any color)
– 2 lbs ground beef
– 1 white onion, diced
– 2 eggs
– 2 tablespoons capers
– 3 cloves garlic, pressed
– 1/2 cup almond meal
– 1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
– 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
– 2 tablespoons dried oregano
– 2 tablespoons cumin
– 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
– sea salt and pepper to your liking
– olive oil

To make the stuffed peppers:

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Cut the top off of every pepper, take out the seeds, and cut in half lengthwise.  In a bowl, mix together all ingredients with your hands (except for the peppers).  Stuff the pepper halves with a generous handful of the meat mixture and drizzle about a half tablespoon of olive oil on top of each one. Place the stuffed peppers in a large pan and cook for 40 mins (or until the peppers get fairly soft).
