Delicious Turkey Stuffed Peppers
Ground Turkey stuffed peppers are a delicious healthy meal all by themselves.
Add a lovely herb salad, and a relaxing view, and who could ask for more.
1. Turn peppers upside down on a rack and steam over hot water until they just begin to change color.
(Hint: Buy a steamer if you don't have one. Vegetables are healthier steamed, and for heating leftovers, it takes the place of a microwave in our home!)
2. Cook brown or wild rice according to directions on the box. (or about 1 cup rice to 2 cups water for 40 minutes +/-)
3. In coconut oil or olive oil, saute chopped onions, celery, garlic until the onions become somewhat transparent. Add more oil if needed.
4. Add ground turkey. Season with mixed Italian Seasonings, turmeric, cumin, black pepper, and Worcestershire Sauce (contains some sugar), or substitute your own choice of seasonings. EXPERIMENT! When the turkey is browned, add salt and additional seasonings to taste.
5. Mix turkey mixture with rice to taste (about half and half), and stuff the semi-steamed peppers.
6. Optional: top with a slice of almond cheese (or dairy cheese if you tolerate it), and bake at 350 F until the cheese melts.
This is the way I cooked my stuffed peppers last time I made them. I haven't given exact measurements because next time I might add tomato sauce with more Italian seasonings, and eliminate the turmeric and cumin which give more of a curry flavor. Experiment! It's fun!
