4 bell peppers
1 bag of cauliflower rice (about 1.5 cups)
1/2 lb of ground beef
2 cups of uncooked cabbage
1 cup of vegetable broth
2 cans of tomatoes (drained)
1 cup of mozzarella cheese (DF/SF- Daiya brand)
1/2 large red onion
1 tsp fresh garlic
onion powder to taste
salt and pepper to taste
To start, cut your bell peppers in half (vertically-down the middle) or cut the tops off and clean everything out of them. Then add them to a boiling pot of salted water and turn the heat down to medium. Let them cook until they are slightly soft. Then take them out and place them in a baking safe dish.
Dice your onion and cook it in a pan with your ground beef. Season with salt pepper and garlic powder.
When the ground beef is cooked fully, add the fresh garlic, 2 cups of uncooked chopped cabbage and a cup of vegetable broth. Cover and let that cook on medium heat until the cabbage is tender.
Add both cans of tomatoes (drained) to the mixture. Be sure that your "stuffing" mixture is seasoned well and to your liking.
Stuff the peppers with the mixture and add the shredded mozzarella evenly over the top of them.
Bake for 10-15 minutes at 375 degrees or until the cheese is melted and the peppers are soft.
