Low Carb Stuffed Peppers or Zucchini Recipe

Here's what I did:

Chop 1 zucchini in small pieces or shred it
2 or 3 Zucchini sliced lengthwise, remove the insides with a spoon to hollow out set the insides aside to use for stuffing
2 or 3 Whole peppers split half and seed removed
1 small can tomato sauce or homemade sauce
Shredded Mozzarella or your favorite shredded cheese (provolone works great too!)
Salt, pepper
2 slivered garlic cloves
2 eggs
grated cheese

In a medium sized bowl add the cooked turkey/hamburger, (or all vegetables if making vegetarian style.)  Add the eggs, garlic, salt, pepper and chopped zucchini that was set aside.
Mix together. 

Stuff the peppers and zucchini with this mixture. Pour the tomato sauce over the top.  Sprinkle with grated cheese. Top with shredded mozzarella and bake at 400 degrees until cheese is browned.

Note for other options:  If you want another kind meatless version,  you can also use chop 2 cups of chopped cauliflower instead of  zucchini or chopped tomatoes with some shredded mozzarella.

For meat version: use 1 lb ground  seasoned ground Turkey or  Hamburger sauteed in olive oil drained and set aside ( season with minced garlic, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.)


  1. They are a perfect dinner for me as I usually prefer low carb for the suppers. Delicious and moreish!

  2. Mmmmm....I'd love this with cooked hamburger! I bet Bill would eat the pepper version, but both look wonderful to me!
