whole30 stuffed peppers

Nov 14, 2016

Growing up my mom always made Italian stuffed peppers that were to die for! These are not them. Ha! Truly I don't think anything compares to Italian stuffed peppers, but while riding the healthy eating train, this is as close as we are going to get in this house. Sticking to a whole30 eating habit gets pretty monotonous. We have our set meals that everyone loves, and I always try and mix it up by altering old recipes to be whole30 compliant. This is one of them. And if my kids will eat them without saying "what is this?" I call it a winner.
whole30 stuffed peppers
  • 4 large bell peppers
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (if doing whole30 make sure you buy a brand that is a-okay)
  • 1 sweet potato (peeled and diced)
  • 1/2 sweet onion (chopped)
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • cayenne pepper (just a pinch, or more if you aren't feeding toddlers)
  • parsley (fresh or dried)
  • salt and pepper
-Preheat oven to 350

- Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add in some olive oil, or you could use coconut oil. Add in onion and cook for 5-6 minutes. Then add in garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. 

-Throw in your ground turkey and cook for 6-7 minutes until browned. Then add in your sweet potato, spices, and canned tomatoes. Bring to a boil then lower heat to a simmer, and cover. Cook for about 10 minutes until the sweet potatoes are fork tender. 

-While that is all happening grab your peppers. Cut the tops off, I like to save them to throw on top while in the oven but you don't have to. With a spoon clean out the pepper and arrange them in a baking dish. You might have to cut the bottoms to get them to stand up straight. 

-Stir fresh or dried parsley into the ground turkey mixture, and then spoon it into your peppers. Replace the tops on the peppers and bake for 20 minutes. 

So easy right?

Chris likes to top his with whole30 spiced mayo and an avocado, which is pretty fabulous too. I love that these are filling and the clean up is super easy!!

I hope you like them, but you can totally tell me if you don't ;)


  1. Yes give me all the spicy mayo and avocados!

  2. I have never had a stuffed pepper. Pretty sure I'm the only Italian who can say that! These look delicious though!!
