Today’s recipe came from Fit Sugar. Paleo Style Stuffed Peppers. I have no clue what “Paleo” means but the picture alone made my mouth water but the simplicity of the ingredients appealed to me as well.
Per the norm, I had to substitute a thing or two. I didn’t have any fresh garlic (bummer). I used garlic powder in its stead. I didn’t have basil but I did have cilantro so I used that. And I used ground beef instead of ground turkey.
This meal from beginning to end is a feast for the eyes, isn’t it?
Turn your pepper halves over and spoon in the meat mixture. And I topped them off with a little extra cilantro. Yumm!
These were really tasty. Simple flavors from simple ingredients. It tastes very clean and light. I first tried eating it with a fork and knife. That wasn’t working. But I found that if you handle it like you would a hot dog – then you’re good to go!
I entered this recipe into my LoseIt! App and here’s what we got. 448 calories isn’t bad for a dinner meal IMO. But you could make it with even less calories by substituting the ground beef for ground turkey.
