Paleo Recipes: Stuffed Peppers


569 Flares 569 Flares ×

My family love stuffed peppers. And I love the colors of the peppers. I am happy to pay a little more for the yellow and orange varieties because they are such a visual pleasure as well as a tasty one. I make a batch of the meat sauce using advice contained in Orleatha’s online course, Batch Cookery, then pull out the amount I need on the day and finish off the meal by cooking with the peppers.
This recipe is from Orleatha’s book Cooking Against The Grain: Grain-Free Meals That Are Fast, Freezer Friendly and Fantastic! in which she demonstrates how to make food that you can easily prepare on a weeknight because you actually made them earlier, often much earlier :-).
These peppers are great for a cool winter’s evening. A good, hearty meal! Please share. Buttons are to the left and at the end of the post.
