A few weeks ago, we received about 6 green peppers in our farm share. I’m all for peppers. I like eating them raw, added to sauces and stir fries… but what do you do with six?! The answer is simple – you stuff them and make a meal out of them.
Here’s what you need –
- 4 medium to large peppers
- 1 small pepper, cored and chopped into small pieces
- 1 cup rice, cooked
- 1/2 pound of ground turkey, browned
- 1 small onion, diced
- 1/2 cup marinara sauce
- mozzarella cheese
Heat a large fry pan to medium/high. Add onions and cook for one minute until soft. Add ground turkey and brown. Add the chopped small green pepper and cook until meat is brown all the way through. Remove from heat.
Combine the meat mixture, rice and marinara in a large bowl. Set aside to cool. Preheat the oven to 325.
Core the remaining four peppers. Meanwhile, boil a large pot of water. Add peppers and cook for 3 – 4 minutes until soft. (You could also skip this step if you’re running out of time). Remove peppers and drain on paper towels. Scoop some of the rice mixture into each of the peppers. Top with mozzarella cheese. Pop in oven and cook for 30 minutes.
