Slow Cooker Greek Stuffed Peppers

This my modification of a recipe I found on (Tina's Greek Stuffed Peppers).

Slow Cooker Greek Stuffed Peppers

(I am guessing on the amounts because I didn't measure I just threw it in to taste.)
1 lb. lamb (can sub for hamburger or any ground meat)
1 small yellow onion
1/4 lb. orzo
1 can diced peppers
1 tsp dried basil
3 tsp dried oregano
1 small can tomato paste
1/2 pkg frozen spinach
5 bell peppers
3 baby carrots
2 green onions
1 pkg crumbled reduced fat feta cheese
3 cloves garlic
1 c. vegetable stock

  1. Cook the Orzo.
  2. Cut the tops and seed the peppers. (Chop the tops up in to the veggies to saute.)
  3. Saute the onion, garlic, spinach, carrots and green onion until aromatic.
  4. Brown the lamb and drain the fat.
  5. Mix veggies, lamb, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, orzo, and
  6. Spoon mixture in to pepper shells.
  7. Spray the slow cooker with cooking spray and line the stuffed peppers in it.
  8. Pour the veggie stock to the bottom of the pot and cover.
  9. Cook on high until the peppers are cooked through (soft).  My cooker is on crack and so on high took 2-2.5 hours to cook the peppers.
Adam ate guacamole with his.  They are super filling.  The original recipe is 639 calories per pepper and it had a lot more oil in it.
