I think you’ll love these Keto Low-Carb Stuffed Peppers.  Sweet peppers are so high in vitamins and minerals and ideal for your Keto Low-Carb paths.

My husband is a big fan of differently colored peppers and asks for me to create dishes celebrating this fruit for him quite regularly.  I make this particular dish for him to enjoy when he finished work late at night.  What’s cool about this dish is that it tastes even better the next day when warmed up.  I use my mom’s recipe. The flavors meld together.


What is the nutritional value of Keto Low-Carb Stuffed Peppers? It’s crucial to maintain a robust immune system in every season, not just in the winter.  But it’s just as important to get enough vitamin C from our diet in the spring and summer.  Vitamin C acts as a natural histamine and immune system booster.  Taking this vitamin will help to alleviate allergy symptoms in the spring and summer.  

When we think about supporting our immune system, vitamin C (ascorbic acid) immediately comes to mind.   We visualize oranges. Vitamin C improves immune health by making antibodies that help to destroy viruses and bacteria and help clear infected cells in our body.

Oranges are not the only source of vitamin C. Many other foods contain this water-soluble vitamin, such as tomatoes, strawberries, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, kiwifruit, and red and green bell peppers.  

Did you know that gram for gram, fresh thyme has three times more vitamin C than oranges? This herb offers one of the highest concentrations of vitamin C of all the culinary herbs. It’s easier to eat one fresh orange than a handful of fresh thyme. 

But the point is we often associate our getting vitamin C from fruit. We fail to remember that we can get a good dose of this vitamin from other foods and savory dishes.

For example, preparing dishes like Creamy Lemon Thyme Chicken offers an added vitamin C dose to your daily intake. By sprinkling about one tablespoon of fresh thyme on this dish, you get about 3.9 milligrams of vitamin C. The tablespoon of fresh lemon juice used in the preparation of this dish also brings up your vitamin C intake by another 53 milligrams. This amount doesn’t seem like much, but every little bit counts toward keeping your immune system healthy.  

Red and green bell peppers are a powerful source of vitamin C. A cup of raw red peppers provides about 317 percent of the recommended daily value (according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture).

Red peppers are also a great source of carotenoids, polyphenols, and other phytochemicals. Cooking bell peppers does break down some of the vitamin C, but cooking also builds its carotenoids and ferulic acid, thus helping to prevent chronic diseases. Green bell peppers deliver about 200 percent of our daily intake of vitamin C.

Red, green, yellow, and orange bell peppers will enhance a whole range of savory dishes. How about Roasted Red Pepper Soup served either hot in winter or chilled as gazpacho in the summer? Top this soup with a hefty dollop of crumbled goat cheese (or vegan goat cheese), a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, and a teaspoon of fresh thyme. Delicious! Or how about red bell pepper brownies? Have you ever considered adding red peppers to your orange and cranberry muffins?


What is the taste profile of Keto Low-Carb Stuffed Peppers? The predominant taste profile of this dish is fattiness due to the meat sauce and cheeses.  The tomato based sauce offers a little tanginess for balance. Heavy, balanced, delicious.


What wine harmonizes with Keto Low-Carb Stuffed Peppers? It’s well known that red wine works with beef and this dish is no exception. The predominant building blocks are fattiness and umami from the beef and a hint of tanginess from the tomato sauce. Find a big red to match. The wine’s acidity, even in a big red, will nicely balance the tomato sauce tanginess all the while having enough weight to stand up to the beef. An austere red with lots of tannin and astringency is not necessary. Go for a big, smoothie like Amarone, Shiraz, Merlot, Tempranillo, or Cabernet Franc.

*Wine Tips: To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, choose low-carb, low-sugar, and low-alcohol wines that are free of additives and artificial coloring.  Include your wine carb macros as part of your meal.  Remember, your liver will process alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Your body will also metabolize alcohol as fuel before using food. This can slow fat burning and may cause your body to store carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat.  Alcohol consumption also stimulates the appetite.  So, drink low-sugar, low-carb, and low alcohol wines in moderation.

  • The recipe baking temperature and time is an estimate.  Follow your own oven’s temperature and cooking time. It takes a gas oven 10-15 minutes to reach the desired temperature. Electric ovens can take 10 minutes longer than that.  The age of your oven will also determine the temperature, time for roasting or baking, and where you want to place your dish in the oven.  The bottom of your oven may be hotter than the top, depending on its condition.  This also includes where to set your dish under the broiler.  So use your own best judgment based on the type, condition, and age of your oven.  Prep times will also vary depending on how slow or quickly you like to work.
