If you love stuffed peppers, you’re going to love the is healthier version even more when you find out what’s in it!
Loaded with protein, vegetables, and hearty grains, these Healthier Stuffed Peppers are a great recipe to make a double batch of and freeze for when you need a quick meal. Instead of the classic rice in this ground beef mixture that stuffed peppers usually have, I substitute it for bulgur wheat.
What’s bulgur wheat you ask? A staple in Middle Eastern regions, is made from whole grain wheat that’s been parboiled, dried, and cracked – making it a super quick grain to prepare. In this recipe, it’s only soaked for an hour in hot water before using! A delicious and hearty addition to salads, soups, stuffings, and even used as a breakfast cereal, bulgur is packed with great nutrition. A balance of fat, fiber, and protein, it’s a healthy choice to refined grains!
