Ingredients

    4 small-medium bell peppers, cut in half and seeded
    1 lb ground turkey (93/7 in this recipe)
    3 tsp olive oil, divided
    1 tsp ground cumin
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 tsp dried oregano

    1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
    1 cup fresh baby spinach, torn
    1 can diced tomatoes
