Ingredients

1 pound lean ground beef

1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

1 medium zucchini, coarsely grated (about 2 cups)

1 small onion, minced (about 1 cup)

1/2 cup bulgur

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon salt

Freshly ground black pepper

3 red bell peppers, halved lengthwise, cores and ribs removed

2 (14 1/2-ounce) cans low-sodium stewed tomatoes, finely chopped

1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the beef, spinach, zucchini, onion, bulgur, egg, oregano, salt and a few grinds of pepper. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  3. Arrange the pepper halves cut side up in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish and fill each pepper half with the meat mixture. Pour the tomatoes over the peppers and sprinkle with the feta cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake until the meat mixture is completely cooked and the peppers are tender, about 25 minutes longer.

I did it mostly the same, just prepared it like my traditional stuffed peppers by roasting peppers in oven and cooking beef and onion together before assembling. I also subbed quinoa for the bulgar due to celiacs disease and added a dash of Greek seasoning to meat mixture. This is a wonderful thing to prepare, separate peppers in individual servings and freeze. Easy to pull out for a quick lunch or if the fam is having something you are unable to eat due to special diet. Thank you for the recipe:)
