The title of this recipe might be a mouthful, but it’s NOTHING compared to the mouthful of goodness you will enjoy from the first bite. These healthy cauliflower-stuffed grilled bell peppers are low carb, but you’d never notice.
These are similar to a twice-baked potato (in fact, the recipe I used for inspiration uses potato instead of cauliflower) but the “vessel” is a hollowed-out bell pepper and the heat source is the grill. The result is both tantalizing and eye-popping.

I like to make these for my family, but I especially like making them for guests. They are well-suited for entertaining because you can make them ahead up to the grilling point, then about 30 min before serving, throw them on the grill. They work as a side for grilled chicken, grilled steaks, grilled fish, or any grilled protein. They are perfect in a 1-2-3 Eat! meal. I served them along side a Grilled Whole Chicken with some roasted brussels sprouts and it was an amazing meal. My sister-in-law requests these quite often.
Try varying the color of your peppers for an eye-pleasing presentation. Another idea is to make the filling, but stuff it into halved mini-peppers as an appetizer.
Speaking of filling, if you have any leftover after stuffing peppers, you MIGHT want to eat it straight from the bowl with a spoon. You might. I mean, I’ve never done it, but one could I suppose.
