Low GI recipes, Easy Stuffed Sweet Peppers
Ingredients:

8 sweet peppers (I like to use different colors)

For stuffing:

  • 2 pounds of ground beef
  • 1 big onion chopped
  • 4 big white mushrooms grated or chopped
  • 1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper

For cooking:

  • Olive oil
  • 1 can (28oz) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup of water

Directions:

  • Core and seed sweet peppers, leaving bottoms intact, and sprinkle inside with a little bit of salt
  • Mix all stuffing  ingredients and stuff the peppers
  • Place peppers in a deep wide pan with olive oil, add crushed tomatoes and water
  • Cover the pan, bring to boiling, then reduce the heat and cook on low temperature for an hour
    • Peppers comes even more delicious when cooked 1-2 days ahead and reheated before serving

Weight Loss Help

  • Stuffed Sweet Peppers meal doesn’t include “bad carbs” which are guilty in gaining weight
  • Using mushrooms instead traditional rice or breadcrumbs, makes the stuffing juicier, and keeps the meal Low Glycemic
  • If you avoid eating a red meat, make the stuffing with ground chicken, ground turkey or both
  • If you are vegetarian or prefer making meat-free-peppers for any other reason, replace ground beef with other vegetables.
      • Alternative stuffing: more mushrooms and onions, zucchini, eggplant, chopped white cabbage. You may add a couple of eggs there, to make the stuffing sticky.
      • Avoid carrots, potatoes, white rice and corn.

     

    For more appealing presentation and more piquant taste,top them with a tablespoon of sour cream or Greek yogurt before serving.
