Stuffed Bell Peppers

Stuffed Bell Peppers

Serves 2


4 bell peppers
1 lb ground beef or turkey
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 large fresh tomato, diced
1 zucchini, chopped
1 large egg (substitute:  2 Tbsp flax meal and 6 Tbsp. water)*
1/2 tsp. cumin
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. salt
fresh ground pepper to taste
Fresh cilantro (optional)
Avocado or pre-made guacamole

Preheat oven to 375. 

(If you are using the egg substitute:  In a small bowl, combine flax meal and water.  Set aside to thicken.)

Brown meat in large skillet and add onion and garlic and cook 4 minutes.  Add zucchini and cook another 3 minutes.

Remove from heat.  Add tomato, spices and egg (or flax/water mixture) and combine all.  Taste to see if you need to adjust spices to your liking (ex:  add more heat, more chili powder, etc).

Cut tops off peppers but keep them.  Scoop out seeds and spoon meat mixture into peppers.  Bake in oven 30-40 minutes in glass baking dish until well heated and peppers are slightly browned.  Keep an eye on them as this can happen fast.

Top with sliced avocados or pre-made guacamole and serve with salad.
