How To Make Vegetarian Stuffed Bell Peppers | Keto Diet Recipe

This Vegetarian Stuffed Bell Peppers Recipe, is an amazingly easy & quick to make healthy Keto Recipe. Keto Diet is a low carb diet & it requires the intake of low carb foods & intermittent fasting. I have been following the diet and I have lost about 18 Kilograms (about 40 pounds) of weight. The weight loss journey continues.

This recipe requires minimum spices. As the name suggests the stuffing is prepared separately. I have used mushroom, cheese, onion, tomatoes & garlic to prepare the stuffing here. This recipe can also be made with minced chicken or meat instead of mushrooms. The cook time and the cooking method, however, will differ when using chicken or meat.

Bell Peppers are an integral part of keto recipes as they have high nutritional value. Bell peppers are very high on Vitamin C. We all know that lemon and oranges are a good source of vitamin C. Capsicum or Green Bell peppers contain twice the amount of Vitamin C as compared to oranges. Yellow bell peppers have four (4) times more & Red Bell Peppers have seven (7) times more vitamin C than oranges.

Bell peppers are high on Vitamin A too. A single large red bell pepper has in store over 5000 IU of vitamin A & a large yellow bell pepper at the same time has only 372 IU of Vitamin A. Though they are not available around the year but with the modern age you get everything around the year.

So without further delay let us begin.
