INGREDIENTS

8 Oz Ground chicken
1/2 Cauliflower, riced
5 Oz Spinach
1/2 Cup Mozzarella cheese, grated
2 Bell peppers
1 Garlic clove, minced
1/2 Tsp Grape seed oil
1/2 Tsp Basil, or try fresh
1/4 Tsp Red pepper flakes
1/4 Tsp Oregano
Sea salt & pepper
Fresh parsley, to garnish (optional)

DIRECTIONS

Cook the ground chicken until it's browned and fully cooked.

step #1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Heat a pan with oil and add ground chicken and cook through.
Add spinach, cauliflower, and garlic to the pan, cooking until the cauliflower is soft and the spinach is wilted.

step #2

In the same pan, sauté garlic and riced cauliflower until soft and fragrant. Add spinach, cooking until it wilts.
Season your stuffing and mix well to incorporate all flavors.

step #3

Season with basil, red pepper flakes, oregano, salt, and pepper. Mix well.

step #4

Slice your peppers in half and remove the veins, stems, and seeds.

step #5

Stuff the peppers with your chicken, spinach, and cauliflower rice filling.
Bake the peppers until they're heated through. Leave them in for longer for softer peppers, or keep the time short for a crisper texture.

step #6

Bake on a foil-lined baking sheet until hot. You'll bake them less for crisp peppers and a bit longer for super-soft tender peppers, depending on your preference.
Add grated mozzarella to the peppers and broil until it melts. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley before serving.

step #7

Top with grated mozzarella and place under the broiler until melted and golden brown, and garnish with fresh parsley.

step #8

Ready to serve!
