I substitute cauliflower for rice, this significantly reduces the calorie count and the taste is not affected at all. I used an onion chopper(alternatively a food processor) and made fine granules of cauliflower before sautéing with garlic and onion before adding the meat. Great flavours, must try if trying to cut calories but increase veggie intake.
Lean ground turkey makes a moist, low-fat substitute for the ground beef that's usually found in stuffed pepper filling. To add a nutty flavor and boost the nutrition even further, we call for cooked brown rice, but this recipe will also work with white rice.
6 Reviews for Stuffed Peppers
I have been making these stuffed peppers for years but just came across this recipe today while I was trying to figure out how many calories where in this dish. The only thing different I do is top the stuffed peppers with a little bit of cheese. This is easy to make even for a busy weeknight.
I added some red pepper flakes to give them a little added punch. They freeze well. Might have to add a little more tomato sauce when used.
An easy way to bring out a fancy dish! It tasted great even without the tomato sauce (which I had forgotten to add) and baking it uncovered in the oven also caused no problems.
