Gevulde paprika

Stuffed peppers

For lunch I usually have something like a yogurt or a sandwich but most of the time nothing with vegetables.

But I do try to add more vegetables because research shows you have to eat at least 375 grams of vegetables per day. At night I often leave out the carbs and add more veggies. For example cauliflower puree.

Bell peppers of other vegetables

I stuff my peppers with spicy ground beef but you can stuff them with anything. You could also use other vegetables like tomato or zucchini.

Stuffed peppers with spicy ground beef
cooking time30 min
total cooking time30 min
servings: 2


  • 3 bell peppers
  • 300 grams ground beef
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 200 ml passata, tomato sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • pepper and salt
  • 100 grams grated cheese I used a mix of mozzarella, emmentaler and young cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celcius.
  • Cut the peppers in half and remove the seeds. Pre bake in the oven when we prepare the stuffing.
  • Bake the ground beef until brown, then add the onion, garlic, cayenne, pepper and salt. Stir and add the tomato sauce.
  • Cover and let this simmer for at least 15 minutes. By doing this the sour taste of the tomato will cook away and the sauce thickens up.
  • Get the peppers out of the oven. It''s possible there's some moisture in them but pout that out. Stuff the peppers, divide the cheese on top and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes until the cheese has melted.
