So usually I make my stuffed peppers with meat, rice, veggies, and lots of spices but with the new low carb diet in place Tim had to come up with something a little different and he made quite the meal!
Look at that beauty! Instead of rice Tim used our new favorite stuffer… lentils. Seriously, these things have worked fabulously in every meal we have made… I would HIGHLY recommend you try them out if you never have. They are also pretty cheap which makes them extra great.
So Tim cooked up the lentils and mixed in left over chicken sausage and ground turkey. He also added in some additional chopped up pepper, onions, and then added lots of spices. He used pepper, salt, garlic powder, red pepper flakes (we love spice), and that is all he can remember. It was delic!
Oh and I added on some soy sauce to the top of mine too! I just can’t get enough of it.
The only thing I would add is that the lentils do suck up the moisture so make sure you have enough sauce/liquid whatever you are going to do! If you try this recipe let me know what you think!
