Stuffed Green Peppers With Creamed Spinach

It is so funny how when you choose not to eat certain things, how much of a limit is placed on the things you eat, unless you try to experiment and come up with new ways of preparing meals that you liked before, but just without the same old ingredients that no longer fit into your lifestyle.

For instance, I love rice and every now and then used to make rice with creamed spinach. But now, I do not really eat rice anymore. Perhaps if I do, I consume it once a week or even less than that.

Since most of my food consumption is vegetables, it can become an issue because eating the same thing every day can tend to be a little boring. But then an idea hits that was never tried before and that is how I came up with using the same creamed spinach but instead of adding it to rice, stuffing it in a green pepper. And here is the recipe.

Stuffed Green Peppers with Creamed Spinach

Serving Size 2

Preparation Time 20 minutes

Calories Per Serving 304 calories


2 Large Green Peppers

1 10 Oz Package Frozen Spinach

3 Sundried Tomatoes

3 Oz of Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese

2 Chopped Slices of Onion

3 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese



1.      In a medium pot filled with 1 Cup of water, add spinach, tomatoes, onion and cheddar cheese and place it over a medium fire.

2.      Allow to cook until spinach is tender, water has dissolved and cheese has melted.

3.      Sprinkle parmesan cheese over spinach, stir it into spinach mix, leave on fire for another five minutes and then allow spinach to cool.

4.      Take Green pepper, cut in a circular motion along top, pull off top and gut out the seeds from the inside.

5.      Take spinach mix and stuff each pepper with it.  Once peppers are stuffed completely to the top, it is ready to be served.

This is a quick and easy meal to make. This meal is not meant to be eaten with fork. Eat the pepper with the spinach by biting into it like you would an apple and guess what; pretty tasty.

Great meal idea for non-meat eating people because the cheese gives it the protein that the body often craves.  Also could be a nice starter or side dish for a dinner party. Will go great with a nice glass of water with lemon in it;
the perfect drink for any food table.
