Sweet Potato & Beef Stuffed Peppers

I am happy to announce that I will be posting my first paleo-related interview on an upcoming blog post. While in NYC, I tried an amazing new restaurant called Hu Kitchen that focuses on how humans should eat. There are limitless gluten-free and paleo options, and the space is amazing. I will write more about it on the upcoming post when I interview CEO and founder Jordan Brown.

On another note, I came across a great blog this week that I've been loving. I definitely recommend Katie did, and her awesome pepper recipe inspired my dinner tonight.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Cut the tops off the peppers, clean out the insides, and put them in a baking dish with an inch of water
  3. Bake for 30 minutes
  4. While peppers cook, saute the ground beef, and drain all excess fat/liquid when cooked
  5. Add the shredded sweet potato, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cinnamon to the beef, and cook for another 10-15 minutes until sweet potato is cooked
  6. Whisk eggs in a bowl, and add beef mixture
  7. Pour the mixture into the peppers, cover the dish with tin foil, and bake for another 30 minutes
  8. I served these with some simple roasted asparagus (20 min @ 350 degrees with a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder)
