  • 3 bell peppers
  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 1 lbs. ground beef (you can use any meat you have available)
  • 1 medium onion (chopped)
  • 3 minced garlic cloves
  • 2 cups riced cauliflower

  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella
  • Fresh herbs (to garnish)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) degrees.
  • Wash and dry the bell peppers. Cut in half and remove the membrane and seeds with a spoon. Place the bell peppers in a casserole dish cut side up. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Heat a pan over medium-high heat. Add oil and allow to heat. Sauté onions for 3 - 4 minutes until translucent. Add garlic and cook for another minute. Add ground beef and cook for 6 - 8 minutes until beef has browned and there is no pink visible. Set aside in a bowl.
  • Sauté riced cauliflower in the same pan for 5-7 minutes, until softened and some moisture has evaporated.
  • Add marinara sauce, fresh thyme, salt, and pepper and mix together. Turn the heat down to medium-low for 2 minutes until completely heated through.
  • Stir in ground meat and cook until heated through. Stir in 1/2 cup of shredded cheese.
  • Spoon the meat and sauce mixture into the peppers. Add a sprinkle of cheese to each pepper half.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  • Garnish with fresh herbs if desired, serve and enjoy.
