Grass-Fed Bison Stuffed Peppers
Author:
Recipe type: Paleo, Gluten-Free, Protein
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 lb. grass-fed ground bison (or grass-fed ground beef)
  • 4 red, yellow or orange bell peppers
  • ½ cup chicken broth (to cook the quinoa in)
  • ¼ cup uncooked quinoa
  • ¼ cup diced red onion
  • 1 can drained fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 large egg whisked
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • **Optional: 1 cup mozzarella cheese (this would make it non-paleo)**
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. In a medium saucepan cook quinoa using ½ cup of chicken broth in place of the water. Bring quinoa and chicken broth to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally so not to let it burn.
  3. In a large bowl combine uncooked ground bison and whisked egg. I mix this with my hands to make sure everything gets combined well.
  4. Add diced onions, Italian seasoning, ¼ cup of the drained fire roasted tomatoes to the quinoa. Combine and add to the ground bison/egg mixture.
  5. Place bell peppers in a baking dish and fill each one equally with the bison mixture.
  6. Top each bell pepper with the remaining fire roasted tomatoes.
  7. Cover each pepper with foil and bake for 45 minutes.
  8. **Optional: If using cheese, top each pepper with ¼ cup mozzarella after the 45 minutes and put back in oven uncovered until cheese melts. It should only take 3 - 5 minutes.**
