Top 9 Paleo Stuffed Peppers Recipes
Anchovies were definitely an acquired taste in my palate’s history. I never liked them on pizza, but I soon realized that they are the key to any amazing Caesar salad dressing. They are also the key to these incredible Italian style Paleo stuffed peppers. This is a very simple recipe with few ingredients. The trickiest part maybe charring the peppers evenly. Walnuts add a nice flavor and texture to this dish, as well as a health boost. Blogger Vivica finds Italian anchovies to be the best quality-wise, so hopefully they are available in your area. Otherwise, any anchovy should do the trick. (Photo credit: Vivica from The Nourished Caveman.)
These gorgeous Paleo stuffed peppers really hit the spot when I’m craving one of my favorite cuisines: Mexican! You don’t need a crockpot like this recipe specifies. Shredded chicken is as easy as boiling a chicken breast or tenders until cooked through to the center, and shredding it apart with two forks or your fingers once cooled. Store-bought taco seasoning often has preservatives, so you’d be wise to create your own from scratch with this awesome recipe’s recommendation. If you’re not apt for the Primal diet, just hold the shredded cheese. (Photo credit: AndreAnna from her old blog, Life as a Plate. She now writes at Simply Gluten Free magazine.)
This stuff pepper recipe makes it into the top 10 for my love of Indian flavors. It’s a fairly simple recipe once you gather all your spices. I love the texture provided by the walnuts and raisins, and the spice mix of cumin, coriander, tumeric, and hot curry powder is a classic that always wins. If you’re not into spicy food, opt for a more mild curry powder. (Photo credit: Nancy from She Cooks…He Cleans.)
While this recipe is not suitable for the busy businessperson, if you love to cook and to try elaborate new creations and flavors, check this one out. It requires a lot of ingredients and a variety of spices, but it’s a good opportunity to expand your knowledge (and your pantry). I always say “everything is better with bacon,” but even without Sonia’s bacon slices sealing these delicious peppers, they still would look and taste amazing. These portions are for 6 servings, so this recipe is ideal for a small dinner party. (Photo credit: Sonia of The Healthy Foodie.)
5. Mushroom-Stuffed Poblanos (Primal)
Here’s a great Primal and vegetarian recipe that would be a perfect appetizer or hors d’oeuvre (serving size is 10 small peppers). The mushroom and cheese filling make a great texture and flavor, while the cilantro adds a particularly Mexican tinge. (Photo credit: Angela from Seasonal & Savory.)
These gourmet stuffed peppers are great for the Paleo cook who loves to impress in the kitchen. If you’re a fan of seafood, you won’t want to miss this. While Alyssa uses wild Oregon shrimp, you can use whatever is on offer in your area (better if they are on the small side so they fit in these small peppers). She also includes a beautiful basil pesto and classic Italian ingredients like parsley and olive oil. (Photo credit: Alyssa from Everyday Maven.)
These pepper poppers don’t only make for a great party platter, they are as cute as their name and tastier than you can imagine. They are made with Italian sausage and some herbal seasonings, mixed in with a nutrient-dense, green component in the form of kale. The ladies at Prime Pursuit are right to describe these as “little chariots of deliciousness.” Serve these at a party, and your guests won’t be able to get enough.
Capsicum is the Latin name of the bell pepper, but also the common name for those from Down Under. New Zealand native Nicola likes to fill her capsicums with Cajun-flavored “mince” (that’s ground beef to us North Americans). She makes a simple Paleo stuffed pepper recipe with few ingredients but tons of flavor. Also, the process is too easy and great if you’re short on time.
9. Tuna Stuffed Peppers (Primal)
If you’re a fan of the tuna melt, here’s an amazing Primal version. You can pick any color of bell pepper that you prefer (I’d go with the red one). This recipe couldn’t be easier. Grill up your bell peppers, make your tuna mix in a bowl, fill up the peppers, and sprinkle the cheese to melt under the heat for a few minutes. It’s a great recipe if you’re in a rush, or need a quick afternoon snack for the kids.
