The first time I had a lamb burger I was hooked. I loved the combination of spices with fresh herbs and a cool dollop of Tzatziki sauce. Talk about melt in your mouth. For some reason though I never thought much about cooking it at home. That is until I realized I could make a Mediterranean version of the Italian Stuffed Peppers from the Transforming Recipes cookbook! This recipe does taste best when fresh herbs are used and if you have a little extra time to finely chop those up I guarantee they will be worth it. We used the Tzatziki Sauce from Transforming Recipes as well, but feel free to use a store brought version if that’s easier and if you can find one that is also ultra low-carb, go for it. And since The Carb Nite Solution® doesn’t shy away from cheese, we found the feta to be the perfect crumbly addition to this juicy lamb dish. Let us know what you think in the comments below and check out the other stuffed bell pepper recipes!
