Low Carb Mediterranean Stuffed Bell Peppers

Low Carb Mediterranean Stuffed Bell Peppers created by TheDancingCook

I like this recipe because it doesn't have rice in it. It is very easy to make and if you like the overall flavor of somelike like gyros with tzatziki, I think you will like this as well.

    My husband and I liked this a lot! I am not fond of rice in stuffed green peppers so this was a great find. I did add one third of a can of tomato soup to the meat mixture and poured the remaining two thirds of the soup over the stuffed green peppers. The measurements of the seasonings was perfect. Oh, I did use ground turkey.

    This was a good recipe. I made 4 stuffed peppers and used ground Recipe #275998 instead of meat. I was unable to find a 4-5 oz. container of plain nonfat yogurt, so I used a lowfat french vanilla and it worked out fine. I also left out the cheese. Tasted great, thank you!
