Turkey Stuffed Bell Peppers
I started this blog after I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. After struggling to adjust to a mandatory gluten free diet, I wanted to create a resource for others trying to learn their way around this gluten filled world.
This delicious meal is the turkey stuffed bell peppers recipe I discovered in the Delightfully Free Gluten Free cook book. It is a refreshing, filling, and a flavorful gluten free meal. Here is how I did it:
6 green bell peppers
1 pound ground turkey
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, diced
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon oregano
12 oz of tomato sauce
1 1/2 cup brown rice
Pasta that's delicious and healthy - made from 100% vegetables and gluten-free!
1. Cook brown rice. Make in rice cooker, or cook in a pot with 2 parts water for each part rice. Cook for about 20 minutes until all water in gone.
2. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Wash green peppers, cut off the tops, and remove the seeds. Place the peppers in boiling water and cook for 3-4 minutes. When done, let air dry on a paper towel.
3. Preheat oven to 350º degrees. Spray baking dish large enough to place all the pepper in. Heat a large skill with olive oil and cook turkey meat for 8 minutes until cooked. Drain any oil and place add garlic, salt, oregano 12 oz tomato sauce and cooked rice in skillet.
4. Place the cooked peppers in the baking dish and fill each with the meat stuffing. Bake uncovered for 10-12 minutes. Top each pepper with remaining tomato sauce, a dollar of sour cream, sprinkle with oregano and sliced green onions.
