Clean Eat Recipe: Turkey Stuffed Bell Peppers

Main Dish Recipes, Most PopularWhitney Carlson29 Comments


I LOVE ground turkey! (Sorry Whitney, but ground chicken doesn't have anything on extra lean ground turkey!) When I saw this recipe in Oxygen Magazine's May 2012 issue, I knew that I had to try it! This would make a great snack post workout or pop two of these as a meal a little later on in the day. Don't say I didn't warn you, but you may just want to spice them up a little more than the recipe calls for - my super spicy taste buds were yearning for a little more spice!

Turkey Stuffed Bell Peppers

Reader Recipe of the Month, Cara Cole-Mahon, Oxygen Magazine, May 2012

Ingredients:

4 bell peppers

1 lb lean ground turkey (preferably ground turkey breast or 97/3%)

1 cup cooked quinoa

3 egg whites

1/2 c chopped scallion

2 tbsp Italian seasoning

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tbsp chopped garlic

1 tsp sea salt

2 tbsp clean jarred tomato sauce

 

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut bell peppers in half, discarding the seeds.

2. In a large bowl, combine turkey, cooked quinoa, egg whites, scallion and seasonings plus 1 tbsp of tomato sauce. Mix well.

He & She Tip: Add some additional spices - possibly some cayenne pepper to add some spice and flavor. You can also try a clean Arrabiata sauce for more of a kick instead of regular tomato sauce!

3. Stuff each pepper half with the mixture. Top with remaining tomato sauce. Bake for 45 minutes and serve.

 

1 serving is 2 pepper halves.
