  • Summary

    I use red, orange and yellow bell peppers to cover all the colors of the rainbow, and stuff them with lean ground beef, mushrooms and top with a little cheese for a good healthy dose of Vitamin C, protein, and carbs at the same time.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound lean ground beef, 90% lean
    • 4 mushrooms, chopped
    • 3 ears of fresh corn kernals, or 1½ cups frozen corn
    • 2 ribs of celery, chopped thinly
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 14.5 ounce cans petite diced tomatoes with juice
    • 2 tablespoons concentrated tomato paste
    • 2 tablespoons basil
    • 1 tablespoon oregano
    • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
    • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • 1½ cups cooked long grain rice
    • ¼ cup chopped Italian parsley
