This is another recipe for my LIFESTYLE change. Or I should say, my attempt at my lifestyle change. Habits are hard to break, and I have developed lots of food habits. I have slowly conquered some, and have many more to go.
These are a delicious alternative to fried stuffed peppers and are only 60 calories per pepper.
I found these small bell peppers at Publix in vege section. I have grown to
love them too much! They come in a small or large bag, and we have
graduated to the large bag – ha.
They come in red, yellow and orange colors.
Stuffed Mini Peppers
1/4 cup of low fat cottage cheese
1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese – grated
1/2 cup of Italian blend low fat cheese
Cracked black pepper – to taste
Minced garlic if you like (truly optional)
Cut the top off of the pepper and scrap out the seeds. Rinse and dry.
Blend the cheese together, and add the seasonings.
Stuff each pepper 3/4 of the way full. Lean against your muffin pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes depending on how “roasted” or “crisp” you like your peppers.
I eat these as a snack or as a vegetable side with dinner.
