Meat and Veggie Stuffed Green Peppers

This is probably the most unappetizing picture I've taken since starting this whole journey. What looks like just a huge blob of meat is actually a meat and veggie stuffed green pepper! This was my second time I used our crock pot. It was fun to throw something in there and smell the delicious smells all day. I also liked how healthy it was, and you can hide a bunch of vegetables in the meat mixture.

While we really liked this, we thought it felt a bit dry, so we would have added some tomato sauce (if we had any). I would definitely add some if we made this again!

  • 2 lbs. ground turkey (original author suggests pork or combo of pork and beef, but I wanted to be healthier)
  • 4 large green peppers
  • 1 large onion
  • 10 baby carrots, or 2 large carrots
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • Small head of cauliflower
  • 6 oz. can of tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp. dry oregano
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Cut the tops of the peppers off and clean out the inside
  2. Place peppers in crock pot
  3. Grate onions, carrots, garlic, and cauliflower in food processor
  4. Combine with turkey, seasonings, and paste
  5. Stuff peppers with filling and fill any space in the crock pot with extra turkey mixture
  6. Add 1/2 c. water to the crockpot
  7. Cover and cook for 8-10 hours on low
