1 medium Red Onion
3 cloves Garlic, minced (I tend to add more...I love garlic!)
1 tsp Avocado Oil or Olive Oil, + more for baking dish
1 lb Grass-Fed Ground Beef
1 lb Grass-Fed Bison Ancestral Blend (or any organ blend)
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Tbsp Pluck Organ-Based Seasoning
Ground Black Pepper, to taste
1 (14.5 oz) can Diced Tomatoes
1/4 cup sunflower seeds or other nuts/seeds for extra protein, fat, and crunch
2 cups chopped veggies (kale, carrots, zucchini, mushrooms...you can get creative here)
6 large Bell Peppers, halved and seeded
2 cups cauliflower rice (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup nutritional yeast, cashew cheese, cheese, or herbs as a topper
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Lightly oil a 9x13 glass baking dish with oil. Set aside.
n a large skillet, heat the 1 tsp olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic minced to the skillet and saute until the onions are translucent.
Add the ground beef/bison organ blend, Pluck seasoning, salt, and pepper to the skillet and cook until the beef/bison is completely browned, breaking up with the back of a wooden spoon.
Stir in the can of tomatoes, veggies, cauliflower rice, and seeds/nuts until evenly combined. Simmer until rice and veggie half-cooked. Remove from heat.
Using a large cookie scoop (easiest) or a spoon, scoop the meat mixture into the hollowed-out pepper halves. Sprinkle with cheese, nutritional yeast, cashew cheese, etc or leave plain.
Place the peppers, cut side up, in the oiled baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
Serve hot with a side of guacamole, salsa, or jalapenos (optional).
**These freeze well, so double recipe for make-ahead meals**
