Top 8 Free Stuffed Peppers

Categories Recipes

One of the questions I hear the most when people find out that I have food allergies is – so what can you eat?? This recipe makes me think of how I can still eat delicious meals, that keep me healthy, and fill me up!

My Top 8 Free Stuffed Peppers are free of ALL 8 major food allergens, but in my opinion, you wouldn’t even notice.

This recipe has many benefits to it. First, it’s a quick recipe, which I greatly appreciate. While I love to cook, I like to have dinners that are quick and simple. Second, this recipe is healthy. The hubby and I went on a beautiful hike today in Laguna Beach, and I came home hungry, but also wanting something healthy that wouldn’t undo all of those calories I burned on that giant hill coming back. Third, this recipe is pretty inexpensive. Payday isn’t till Friday, so I appreciate meals with cheap ingredients that I can find at the store.

So whether you are a family with allergic kiddos, a single allergic adult with an appetite, or a working wife like myself, this recipe is one to have on hand!

Now, enjoy!
