Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers

Slow Cooker Stuffed Green Peppers from Kathrynseppamaki.com #glutenfree #grainfree #lowcarb

I really love the taste of stuffed peppers. For me, they are absolute comfort food.  But I usually only make them during the cooler months of the year because I do what I can to leave my oven off during the summer months. But once in a while I still get a craving.

So I wanted to create a recipe that could be done in the slow cooker, so that they could slowly cook at day and infuse flavors even more. These turned out just right! Yum!!

I’ve actually given you two options with this dish. To make it gluten free, us the cooked rice. To make it grain free and low carb, then opt for the riced cauliflower instead. Both work equally as well, and the cauliflower adds some additional veggie power to the meal!
