Mini Stuffed Bell Peppers

I first discovered stuffed peppers when I was doing the Whole 30 and found this blog called, “Marks Daily Apple.” I tried his recipe for stuffed peppers using cauliflower instead of rice and it was delicious. I found these cute mini colored bell peppers at the grocery store and decided I wanted to try and make mini stuffed peppers! HA, just thinking of making them made me smile in the grocery store.
Plus you can eat so many of them! And they would be super cute hors d’oeurves.

The stuffing recipe is from Marks Daily Apple, it’s delicious. Why reinvent the wheel.
So start with your mini bell peppers:

 

Cut the tops off and put them in a loaf pan:

Set these aside and make your filling out of:

 

  • 2 pounds very lean ground beef (MDA uses pork and beef)
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 carrots
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 head of cauliflower
  • 6 ounce can of tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon dry oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dry or fresh tarragon
  • Salt and pepper to taste

I put the onion, carrots, garlic and cauliflower in a food processor and processed it until combined. Like this:

Then I stuffed the mini peppers! It takes a little time and you have to really pack it in there, but it’s worth it in the end :).

Stick these bad boys in the oven and bake at 325* for 25 minutes and voila! Mini stuffed peppers :).

And here’s the video!
