A quick and easy low carb meal for one! If you're looking for keto friendly dinner or lunch recipes that don't require a lot of time in the kitchen, you've got to try these tuna stuffed bell peppers. They are cheesy and delicious, yet packed full of protein and fiber.
- 1 small bell pepper (any color)
- 1 5oz can light tuna
- 2 tbsp diced celery
- 1-2 tbsp mayonnaise
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1 pinch ground black pepper
- 2 slices provolone or cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cut the bell pepper in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Place them cut side up in a small baking dish. You may need to use some bunched up foil to prop them up if your pepper halves are wonky in shape.
In a small bowl, mix together the tuna, mayo, celery and preferred seasoning. I usually just sprinkle with black pepper and garlic powder, but you could also add onion powder or dill.
Top each one with a slice (or two) of cheese. You can also use shredded cheese if that's what you have on hand.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the cheese if fully melted and browned to your liking.
Red onion and dijon mustard are also common ingredients for a tuna salad, but I personally don't care for either. Feel free to customize to your liking!
