Keto Peppers Recipes
I have already made our European Style of Keto Stuffed Peppers with Shirataki Rice at the beginning of blogging.
This recipe is my favorite, and my mum till now makes it every time we visit. In that particular recipe, I used Shirataki Rice as a Rice Replacement and Banana or Anaheim peppers, which are light green in color and have much thinner skin.
I use those particular types of peppers also in our Hungarian Lecso, which is made all around central Europe mostly during the summertime when all of the peppers and tomatoes are in our gardens.
And because this is really one of my favorite recipes, I have decided to go with Bell Pepper Option and use those beautiful Rainbow Colors for our dish.
Bell Peppers are a tiny bit higher in carbs if you compare them to the Banana or Anaheim Peppers, I have mentioned above.
But they are a perfect addition to our healthy lifestyle and as long as we can control our portions, can be a great addition to Keto Diet as well.
They are perfect served fresh added to our salads, but also very popular during grilling season. Those bright colors you get from them outshine any other dish.
All are rich in vitamin C and you would not believe it. They contain much more Vitamin C than oranges do. Can you imagine?
Rainbow Bell Peppers
Each Color is special on its own.
While Green Bell Peppers are lower in carbs, Red Peppers has got an enormous amount of Vitamin A.
And therefore we should not pick the colors, but combine them all together. Not only for the Rainbow visual effect.
As we already know, each color of the Bell Pepper has its own unique grams of carbohydrate.
1 Cup of Green Pepper has got 4.3 grams of Carbs.
1 Cup of Yellow and Red Pepper has 5.7 grams of carbs.
Green Bell peppers with their 4.3 grams of carbs in a Cup has got the least amount of carbs from all of the Bell Peppers colors.
With our calculations and having 6 portions from the whole recipe, you get 5 carbs per serving with 2 grams of fiber, which leads us to the 3g of net carbs per meal.
