Turkey Cauliflower Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed Peppers are a favorite of mine. I’m always trying to come up with new concoctions. I found a winner with these Turkey Cauliflower Stuffed Peppers.

First of all, I want to point out that boiling Peppers is a game-changer (thanks for the pro-tip Rebecca). I usually roast them in the oven for about 45 minutes, but when you boil them it takes about 20 minutes to boil the water and partially cook the peppers. Who doesn’t love saving time? I know I do!

This is also a low carb meal. I decided to replace the rice with Cauliflower Rice and I’m so glad I did. The filling doesn’t stick together as well as it would with rice, but besides that you wouldn’t know the difference with all of those flavorful spices and cheeses working their magic.
