Paleo Stuffed Green Peppers with Cauli Rice

Inspired by a recent post over at Elana's Pantry, I made these delicious stuffed green peppers for dinner last night. I made several modifications to the original recipe. The recipe below contains my modifications. Super yummy and really easy to make!

Stuffed Peppers
6 bell peppers (I used green)
1 pound ground beef (natural, no hormones added)
1/2 pound breakfast sausage (Bob Evans Naturals)
1 cup cilantro, finely chopped
½ cup onion, finely chopped
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon celtic sea salt
6 small slices of raw milk cheddar cheese

In a medium sized bowl mix all the ingredients
Cut the tops off of the peppers and set aside
Place peppers in an 11 by 7 inch pyrex baking dish
Stuff the peppers with the meat mixture; place one slice of cheddar on each pepper. place tops on peppers to close
Bake at 350° for 1 hour (**I needed about 10 extra minutes)

We also tried the cauli rice recipe on Elana's Pantry. It was a good alternative to rice and gave the same consistency.

Cauliflower Riceprint this post
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
1 cup celery, finely diced
1 head cauliflower, trimmed and coarsely chopped
¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat
Saute onion over medium heat for 10 minutes, until soft
Add celery to skillet and saute for 5 minutes
Meanwhile, place cauliflower in a food processor with the "S" blade and process until the texture of rice
Add cauliflower to skillet, cover and cook 5-10 minutes, until soft, then add salt
