Tasty Stuffed Peppers

If you like peppers, rice and turkey you’re in the right place. Stuffed peppers make for a great tasty dish at the end of a long day. This is a great recipe if you have a bit of extra time to prep dinner. This recipe has been taken and adapted from its original on All Recipes. Although I have added turkey to it, this meal can easily become vegetarian friendly.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 Pound Ground Turkey
  • 1/2 Tsp Garlic
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1/2 Cup Uncooked White Rice
  • 2 Green, Red or Orange Bell Peppers Halved
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Red Onion
  • 1 Tsp Dried Basil
  • 1 Tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp Ground Pepper
  • 1 Tomato Diced
  • 1/2 Cup Crumbled Feta Cheese

Begin by preheating the oven to 400° F and lightly grease a baking sheet. Next, cook up your ground turkey in a pan on medium to high heat with your garlic. You will then need to cook your rice up according to the directions on the box and set it aside.

Place the halved peppers cut-side down on the baking sheet and roast them in the oven for approximately 25 minutes (or until tender).

While those roast, heat oil on medium to high heat in a pan. Cook your onions, basil, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper in the pan for 2 to 3 minutes. Add in the tomato and cook for another 5 minutes. Next, add in the rice and turkey and stir until heated through. Remove from heat and mix in the feta. Spoon the ingredients into the pepper halves and put them back into the oven for another 5 minutes before serving.

Enjoy!
