Keto Rice

Keto Rice being a part of various Pasta Alternatives in our lifestyle has changed my way of cooking. Choosing Shirataki Rice is the easiest option, but Cauliflower Rice will work as a great replacement as well. 

Using Shirataki variations in your kitchen like our Shirataki Chicken Noodles Recipe makes the keto cooking extra fast. 

No need to pre-cook your pasta, all you have to do is fully wash them and any dish you desire. They soak the flavor of your dish and nobody will ever know. 

European Stuffed Peppers

One of my favorite childhood dishes, those Stuffed Peppers are a perfect match to your easy dinner, or just to warm you up during cold evenings. 

Very popular in most of Europe and my favorite.

Even now, every time I come for a visit, my mum makes sure, one big pot is waiting for me in the kitchen.

Difference between American and European Stuffed Peppers.

There are 3 main differences.

  • Type of peppers
  • Tomato sauce
  • Cooking not baking

What types of peppers to use?

The type of peppers we use, the tomato sauce, and the cooking process instead of baking. 

Most of the American Stuffed Peppers consist of Bell Peppers of various colors. 

We in Europe, on the other side use light green to yellow color peppers, which have got much thinner skin known as Anaheim Peppers or Banana Peppers.

Banana Peppers

Banana Peppers are lighter in texture as well as taste. 

Their skin is really thin compared to the Bell Peppers. This makes them the perfect vegetable to cook with. 

They also contain fewer carbohydrates, which is a big plus we are always looking for. 

Widely available in Europe, Banana Peppers are a very popular vegetable. 

Especially in the summer as almost every single garden has got few Stems growing. 

Our Lecso Vegetable Stew together with tomatoes from your garden is another popular recipe to enjoy. 

Family size cooking

As some of you might already be familiar, I cook most of the time in big pots (so I can save time for everyday cooking).

Our Keto Stuffed Peppers with Shirataki Rice Recipe is no exception. 

It comes in a huge pot, but since this dish is perfect to freeze, there goes your weekly menu preparation. 

It is easily stored in the freezer as well for days when you are in a hurry.

Variations of European Stuffed Peppers

  • You can swap Shirataki rice with Cauliflower rice
  • Some families omit rice all together
  • Ground Beef can be replaced by turkey, chicken, or pork 
  • Unfatenned Almond Flour can be replaced with a tiny amount of Xanthan Gum or Guar Gum for thickening the sauce. 

Ground Beef leftovers

The perfect recipe to use leftover Ground Beef is also our Bunless Bacon Keto Burger or Portobello Mushroom Keto Burger

What if I run out of peppers?

Not a problem and that is what we do all the time.

Once you fill up all of your peppers and you will be left with the extra mixture, shape it into bigger minced balls, trying to get a similar size of your peppers, so it will cook evenly. 

My kids prefer this dish without the pepper and therefore the Stuffed Balls are their favorite.

How to make European Keto Stuffed Peppers with Low Carb Rice and Tomato Sauce

Kitchen gadgets you might need:

Ingredients needed:

Stuffing:

Sauce:

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS ON STUFFED PEPPERS

First Step: Peppers

Cut the stems and top of the peppers. Using your knife, clean all of the insides without breaking the peppers. Place them aside

Second Step: Shirataki Rice

If you are using Shirataki Rice, make sure you wash them fully under the warm water. They normally come packed in a liquid, which has got a very unpleasant taste. This should be fully washed and later on, the rice will absorb all of the flavors from the dish. 

Third Step: Stuffing

Into a big mixing bowl place all of the minced meat, eggs, washed shirataki rice, and dry ingredients. Using your hand or a spatula mix them all fully.

Fourth Step: Filling

With your hand fill each of the precleaned pepper with a stuffing mixture to the top of the pepper. Make sure you gently press the filling in so it will not spread while cooking. 

In case you will have some more filling left and no more peppers, not a problem. Just form balls similar in size to your filling in peppers for equal cooking time.

Fifth Step: Sauce

Using a big pot, cook your onion with a bit of oil until golden brown.

Sixth Step: Tomatoes

Add tomato sauce and tomato juice into the pot and bring it to boil.

Seventh Step: Stevia and thickeners

Add either stevia tabs or fresh stevia, or any of your favorite Sugar sweeteners.

At the same time add a bit of fat reduced almond flour and let it cook for another 5-10 minutes.

Eight Steps: Hand blender

Using your hand blender, blend the whole sauce. It will not only make sure all of your onion gets blended but with this step, the color of your tomato sauce lightens up and gets into a beautiful red shade.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

What kind of Keto Rice can you use for Stuffed Peppers?

Type of Keto Rice to use for your Stuffed Peppers varies.

Shirataki Rice is the easiest and it only needs a proper wash.

Cauliflower rice is another great option if you have time to prepare it. No need to cook cauliflower as well, as it will soften while cooking the whole dish.

Palmini rice is the third option, I have not experimented with yet.

How do you store Keto Stuffed Peppers?

Leaving them in the pot, store the leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 to 4 days. No longer.

Can you freeze Stuffed Peppers with Tomato sauce?

Absolutely yes.

 I use Mason Jars, as always. Depending yón the size of your mason jar, fill them with single, 2, or 3 peppers and top it up with tomato sauce. This will be a perfect portion plan for the day when you need a quick dinner.
