Tasty Tuesday - Stuffed Bell Peppers

July 11, 2017, by Shelly @ The Queen in Between

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday here at The Blended Blog where you can linkup your favorite recipes and take away some delicious dishes to try.  I'm Shelly from The Queen in Between blog and last month I shared a few clean eating recipes I've been using this summer for a healthy eating challenge.  My favorite thing to do is take a meal I really love and clean it up a bit without losing any of it's flare. Today I'm sharing a low carb version of my favorite stuffed bell peppers!

Typically when I make stuffed bell peppers I use brown rice but since I was really wanting to clean these up a bit dropping the grains was a must.  Cauliflower makes such a great substitute for rice and while I typically would purchase the cauliflower already chopped up, there was a head at home needing to be cooked.

After browning the meat and combining with the cauliflower and rotel tomatoes the bell peppers were stuffed and ready for the oven.  I like to boil my peppers for a bit to soften them up.  Some may like the peppers crunchy but I am not a fan.  This can also be done in the oven set at 425.

Grated cheese would have topped these peppers not long ago, but today I opted to skip the cheese and kept it clean with a little guacamole and Sriracha sauce.

They were so delicious and incredibly filling.  Not once did I feel like I was missing out!

1 lb ground meat 
1 head cauliflower
1 TBSP Chili Powder 
1 tsp Cumin
1 can Rotel tomatoes

In a skillet brown hamburger meat and when almost down add cauliflower.  Let cook on medium heat for several minutes while cauliflower softens.  Add the additional spices and Rotel tomatoes and stuff into seeded peppers.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Remove from oven and top with your favorite topping; cheese, guacamole, sriracha, sour cream.  

I'm anxious to try a potato salad recipe I recently saw near the 4th using cauliflower instead of potatoes for a potato salad.  I definitely think it is worth a try.  Have you used cauliflower as a substitute for rice or potatoes?
