Easy low FODMAP Stuffed Peppers recipe.

Low FODMAP Stuffed Peppers Recipe

If you are anything like me, when Fall arrives you start to crave warm foods with lots of flavors. Like soups, enchiladas, and anything with peppers and squash. While scrummaging through our pantry and fridge, I realized a had a few bell peppers and an overabundance of tomatoes from our garden. With the few ingredients I had, I decided to whip up some stuffed bell peppers that are low FODMAP friendly.

The first step

You need to preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a small saucepan make 1/2 cup of brown rice. While the rice is cooking, you need to cut your bell peppers in half. To keep the pepper intact, cut through the stem of the pepper to the bottom.

Clean out the veins and seeds. Once your bell peppers are cut and cleaned, place them in a pot and cover with water. Bring the peppers to a boil for about 3 minutes.

Immediately take the bell peppers from the boiling water and place in a dish of ice water. This stops the pepper from cooking.

Then you will place the peppers in a 13×9 baking dish

In a large saute pan, brown your ground beef or turkey. Once your meat is cooked add your chopped jalapeno, diced tomatoes, and cooked riced. Season with salt and pepper and let cook for 5-6 minutes or until most juices are reduced.

Add your shredded cheese and stir. Take a spoonful of the mixture and place it into the peppers. Cover the peppers with foil and bake for 25 minutes. Then remove the foil, add cheese on top and cook for another 5 minutes. Once cooked, sprinkle with paprika if desired and serve!
