I make low cal mac and cheese by using water and Molly McButter to the cheese mix in place of milk and butter and a salad

A big salad, because the stuffed peppers have strong flavor components (at least the way my mom always made them).

I make an easy coleslaw--47 calories/serving. For 2: 2 cups slaw mix, 2 packets Splenda (or 2 t sugar), 1 T Miracle Whip Light (do not substitute mayonnaise), 1 T skim milk, salt & pepper to taste. Mix & refrigerate while rest of meal cooks. Adds another veggie, some crunch, and additional fiber.

I normally serve the peppers either alone or with bread, but after reading some of the comments, I might roast some potatoes next time. :)

I would do dinner rolls or toast (to sop up the sauce...because that's the best part!) and salad. Or roasted veggies, like broccoli.

I have always had mine with potatoes. My mom would either make mashed or fried. The potatoes are good to sop up the yummy sauce.

Nothing, I just serve the stuffed pepper. I make sure it's a decent sized portion.

When my mom made stuffed peppers when we were growing up, she always made boiled potatoes with them~(Lots of sauce as we have them the Hungarian way, boiled in tomato juice, not baked) When I make them now, I serve them with a side salad and a cooked veggie.
Another option that now do is make it as a soup in my crock-pot (Chopped peppers instead of stuffed) and add the rice to my bowl instead of to the meat.

my mom always made them w/ green beans on the side, (don't know why). she would top her stuffed ppr w/a red sauce and then she would put that on the green beans and maybe alittle pasta too.

Hi,

I am planning on making stuffed peppers with ground beef and onions etc ( my first time ) and wondered what to serve with it as there is meat in it already and rice so all elements are in the pepper, it just will look a bit small with 1 stuffed pepper on the plate..

I know salad would be a choice and want to stay away from potatoe,

does anyone have any ideas or tried out ideas
