Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed peppers. Healthy and easy to make ahead of time. Bring to work for quick, easy and economical lunches!

4 peppers (red, yellow, orange or green) cut in half and seeded
2-3 Hot Italian turkey sausage, casings removed (just push meat through the end of the casing til casing is empty)
8 oz Lean ground turkey
*1 medium onion, diced
*1 small zucchini, diced small
*2 small carrots, diced or shredded
5-10 mushrooms (depends of how much you like them)
2 cloves of garlic, pressed or diced
1 large handful of baby spinach, coarsely chopped
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 cup of your favorite marinara sauce or an 8oz can of tomato sauce
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese (optional)
*I used my Vitamix to chop my veggies. Set on variable speed 4-5 with the lid on but plug removed so I could drop the veggies in to be chopped. This was super easy! Much better than cutting, dicing or shredding the veggies. Easy way to sneak in veggies to most meals too!
  • Cook the turkey til brown
  • Add onion and garlic, cook for 2-3 minutes
  • Add the marinara or tomato sauce
  • Add the zucchini, carrots, mushroom and spinach, cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the brown rice.

Drizzle olive oil on the bottom of a 9"x13" pan
Place the halved peppers, skin side down in the pan
Scoop and press the meat mixture into the pepper halves
Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese (optional)
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour
Let cool and ENJOY!

All ready to bake!
