Enjoy some low-carb yum with recipes like: Cajun-stuffed Bell Peppers
Cajun-Stuffed peppers make for a wonderful, easy meal with just 5 main ingredients.
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Have a baking dish ready.
2. Place the bell pepper shells in the baking dish.
3. In a skillet over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. Add the garlic and cook until it becomes fragrant. Add the mushrooms, cauliflower, chopped bell pepper tops, and the Cajun Seasoning, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
4. Add the Pepper Jack cheese to the mixture and mix well.
5. Fill each bell pepper with the vegetable and cheese mixture and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the peppers are browned and the cheese is melted.
Tasty variation tip:
Make this an Italian dish by replacing the Cajun Seasoning with your favorite Italian seasoning blend and using mozzarella instead of Pepper Jack cheese. Make this a Greek dish by replacing the seasoning with a Greek blend and using Feta instead of Pepper Jack.
