Low Carb Stuffed Peppers


I love this dish. You can’t even tell that I don’t use rice. I use riced cauliflower instead. Riced cauliflower is a staple for low carb, Keto diets.


It is very easy to make just cut up the cauliflower and toss in the food  processor until it resembles rice. Or you can take the easy way out which is what I do these days and buy it frozen or fresh at Trader Joe’s or your local market.


They are really easy and delicious. I always make extra for another dinner. They freeze well too. These make a tasty keto friendly meal. It can even be made ahead.
