Mediterranean-Flavored Turkey Stuffed Peppers are flavorful and healthy. Brown rice, olive oil, spices, and feta cheese all combine for a different twist on a traditional recipe.
Stuffed Peppers Ingredients
These peppers include lean ground turkey, brown whole grain rice, tomato sauce, and spices. Feta cheese adds a salty bite.
How to Make Stuffed Peppers
First you cook your rice, saute your onion and add ground beef.
Next cut and clean your peppers.
One tip I can suggest here is when you pick out your peppers, try to select roughly the same size and shape. This will help them all fit in the same pan and will be more uniform.
You can cut the peppers from stem to bottom or horizontally in half. Either way works.
Next, you can parboil the peppers prior to stuffing to help them cook quicker. I add water to the baking pan so they steam while they bake. I like them al dente so they have a bite and aren't mushy.
The spices add a different taste from traditional Italian flavored peppers.
For this recipe, I used bell peppers but you can also choose poblano peppers for a mild spicy kick or any others that are large enough to stuff.1
Pair these peppers with a crisp salad such as my Apple Pecan Salad for a complete healthy meal.
