Paleo Stuffed Peppers

My family was over for dinner tonight and we enjoyed a simple recipe for stuffed peppers.  Even though my family doesn’t adhere to a paleo lifestyle, they still devoured dinner.  Similar recipes can be found anywhere online.  We took a different approach with the cauliflower and sautéed it in the same pan we browned the sausage in.  A minor touch that helped to add a lot of great flavor to the meal.

A paleo take on a traditional dinner favorite.


  • 1lb Italian sausage (casing removed)
  • 2 cups Riced cauliflower (See our post on ricing your cauliflower)
  • 1 Small Onion (diced)
  • 8oz Tomato paste
  • 6 Large Basil leaves (finely chopped)
  • 3 cloves Garlic (minced)
  • 2 teaspoons Dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons Dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 6 Large Bell Peppers


Step 1 Preheat oven to 375℉
Step 2 Brown sausage in pan over medium heat. Take care not to break pieces to small.
Step 3 Remove sausage from pan and add riced cauliflower. Sauté for 2 minutes or until lightly browned. (This will really pick up some great flavor in the final product!)
Step 4 Meanwhile, remove tops, devein peppers and set aside.
Step 5 In a separate bowl, add sausage, cauliflower, and remaining ingredients
Step 6 Add mixture to inside of peppers and bake in a glass baking dish.


When making this dish, take care not to mince everything into an indistinguishable mash.  The varying texture is a big part of what makes this so appealing.

If your baking dish is too large for the peppers, make some foil balls to help keep them standing.  A few well placed foil balls will ensure all the delicious stuffing and sauce remains in the pepper.

My wife called me insane...But I threw a fried egg on top of my stuffed pepper...As with any time you add a fried egg, it was amazing.
