Quick and Healthy: Paleo Stuffed Peppers

Delicious mod on stuffed peppers that Valerie came up with to suit our caveman/woman selves.  These are seriously awesome.

The Perfect Little Package.

What You Need:

  • Bell-Peppers, 4 medium-sized
  • Onion, 1 medium-sized
  • Ground Beef, about 1 lb.
  • Tomato Sauce (If you can, try to find one without hidden sugar in it!  Ours is just tomato and salt and it’s delicious.)
  • a clove of Garlic
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Basil, Oregano, Sea Salt, and Black Pepper


  1. Take 4 medium bell peppers, cut off the tops and clean the inside, and boil them in a pot for 5 min. or until the color is really vibrant.
  2. Chop a medium-sized onion and saute it for about 5 min. in 3 tbsp of olive oil or until translucent.
  3. Then, add a minced clove of garlic in with the onion for another 30 sec. to a min.
  4. To start making the filling, combine the ground beef, onion, and garlic mix in a big bowl, and add 1/3-1/2 a cup of tomato sauce along with basil, oregano, sea salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  5. Spoon the filling into the peppers, and then line them up in a baking dish with 1/4 inch water in the bottom.
  6. Bake at 350 for 40-50 min. and enjoy!

Notes:  Great with salsa.  You can experiment with whatever seasonings you may like in the filling.  Some ideas we had were:  cumin, cayenne pepper, tabasco sauce, and possibly subbing the tomato sauce directly for salsa.

Enjoy, and stay healthy everybody!
