Indian Stuffed Peppers

Some of my favorite recipes, from the kitchen-cleaner’s point of view, are those that don’t use a lot of dishes. When you can combine that aspect with a recipe that uses healthy ingredients, tastes great, and also uses up the over abundance of peppers in your garden – well then, folks, we have a winner.

Bell pepper season isn’t here just yet, but as I’m planning my garden on paper I’m preparing for lots of peppers in the ground. And of course, this just makes me crave a simple, yet satisfying dish like this one all the more.

Indian Stuffed Peppers (casein-free, egg-free, gluten-free, nut-free, sugar-free, yeast-free, anti-candida, low-carb)

5 bell peppers
1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 tsp. ground coriander
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper (or to taste)
14 oz. diced tomatoes, keep the liquid
salt, to taste

1. Brown the ground beef with the onions, coriander, cumin, and cayenne pepper.

2. Add the tomatoes (and juice) and salt and let simmer about 10 min.

3. Wash peppers and cut in half from top to bottom. Remove the seeds and ribs inside. Lay each pepper half in a 9×13 pan (you may need another small pan).

4. Fill each pepper half with the beef mixture.

5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40 minutes.

Makes 10 halves. Each half is 5.2g of net carbs.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog! Arrived here yesterday through a link-up and have been itching to get back and read more! I'm so excited to hear someone else talk about what we've been learning for the last 2 years! We also had to make diet changes after my husband came down with symptoms that no doctors or specialists could find the answers to. We finally saw a nutritionist after urging from my family and within three weeks he was a new man, our food started tasting WAY better because we were cooking naturally, and the overall health of our whole family has improved! I admit, I've fallen off the healthy wagon over the last 6 months or so and the pounds have come on. I've been needing a community to help me get back on the healthy wagon and between you and some of those you link up with I'm excited to try some new recipes feel healthy again!

    Hello! Arrived today after going to Comfy in the Kitchen. Your blog is so great! We have been going "raw" for a few years and LOVE it. We still have a ways to go but are enjoying the journey! One thing I would like to recommend to everyone is WATER WATER WATER! I have been drinking a gallon a day for several months now and have noticed amazing health benefits. I do not recommend drinking water from a plastic bottle – glass only!
    Can't wait to keep up with your blog – happy "raw" eating!
