Growing up… Stuffed Peppers were my favorite dinner. Especially on cold winter nights. The warm, sweet pepper. Wrapped around it’s own bowl of goodness… rice, beef, vegetables. At that age I didn’t really even know what was in it. I just knew it was some tasty goodness!
But now that I’m older, I realize those homemade bell peppers weren’t entirely “healthy”. Because most stuffed peppers rely on white rice (refined carbs), ground beef (not so great if factory farmed) and canned tomato sauce (often loaded with sugar), which doesn’t add up for a heart-healthy meal after all.
So I decided to “Paleoize” these peppers. Yes… I just made my own word :)
This recipe is similar to Momma’s Original, but updated to make it even better for you.
