Paleo Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers with Sausage

Paleo Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers with SausageWhat you need:
• 1 pound of ground Italian (I recommend hot) sausage.
• 5 assorted bell peppers. Use green, red and/or yellow.
• 1/2 head of cauliflower, grated or chopped into a “rice” consistency.
• 1 small (8 ounce) can of tomato paste.
• 1 small white onion, medium dice.
• 1/2 head of garlic, minced.
• 1 small handfull of fresh basil, minced (or 2 tsp. dried).
• 2 tsp dried oregano.
• 2 tsp dried thyme.

How you make it:
1. Cut the tops off of your peppers and scoop out and discard the the tops!
2. Process or chop about half a head of cauliflower into “rice” and put in a large mixing bowl.
3. Add your minced garlic, basil, and dried herbs, and onion to your cauliflower and mix by hand.
4. Use a very hot skillet to lightly brown your sausage. This step is entirely optional… The sausage will cook just fine in your slow cooker.
5. Add your sausage and can of tomato paste to your bowl of seasoned cauliflower and mix by hand.
6. Fit as much of your sausage mixture into your peppers as you can. Place your peppers into your slow cooker and loosely place the pepper tops back on. If you have extra meat and cauliflower mixture, just jam in between your peppers and let it cook.
7. Cook on low for 6 hours.
8. Enjoy!!!!
