MEAL PLANNING & PREP
Our weeks start with planning and prep. Meal planning is crucial for me to make sure I’m staying within a healthy carb range (I’m usually 20-30 or fewer grams of carbs per day these days – I’ve been eating keto for almost 6 months). I make these stuffed peppers ahead of time and pack them in airtight glass containers (like these) with some spinach, almonds and olive oil on the side (lunches, done).
STUFFED PEPPERS MAKE A MEAL OR A SIDE
I love stuffed peppers because you can make them an entire meal (meatless Monday?) or use them as a side with something else (I pair them with a spinach salad; the hubs pairs them with some roasted chicken).
We almost always finish them off with a dessert, like these chocolate chip cookies!
KETO FRIENDLY & GRAIN FREE
We’ve been making stuffed peppers forever, but our previous recipes called for some sort of grain, like quinoa or rice (which we don’t eat anymore). So, I had to come up with a stuffing that wasn’t a grain, filled the pepper well AND didn’t have a bazillion carbs.
Cauliflower rice for the win. I flavor it with olive oil, feta and Everything But the Bagel Seasoning and it’s delicious. We use this seasoning on EVERYTHING – roasted chicken, in salads, in recipes…everything. I have 3 backups in the pantry because we go through it like its water.
These peppers need to roast for like, 40 minutes. To make the prep quick and easy I use frozen cauliflower rice. You can totally make it ahead of time though, from scratch and just use that. It ends up being around 12 oz needed for the recipe.
Some people cover their peppers when roasting – I don’t. I like the little-charred edges myself, but if you don’t, just loosely cover it while baking.
