A Low-Calorie Retro Classic Made With Lo-Dough

Some dishes never go out of fashion and we thought this 80's dinner party favourite was due for a Lo-Dough makeover. By replacing the usual rice, couscous, bulgar wheat, or regular bread often found in a stuffing with Lo-Dough, you massively reduce the calories and (white) carbs of your meal. 

We have chosen to go down the vegetarian route for the stuffed peppers in this recipe and have chosen to take them in a Mediterranean direction in terms of flavour. So think garlic, fennel, tomato, pesto, and almonds as well as a few other flavourings - all topped with Eatlean's delicious, low-fat, protein cheese.

Getting Value From Your Lo-Dough

It's also an economical use of Lo-Dough - 1 piece (plus the chopped vegetables) will stuff 3 peppers. One of these alongside a side salad will be more than enough for a satisfying and balanced meal. 

Using it as part of a stuffing has given us yet another use for Lo-Dough - and it's one that is delicious, nutritious and full of life. 

Low-Carb Bread, used as a crumb

By blitzing Lo-Dough down to a crumb, you create a new versatile ingredient to cook with - one that is high in fibre and low in carbs and calories. As well as stuffings, you can make dessert cakes, fishcakes, fritters, brownies, bean burgers - the list goes on and on.
