Ingredients

    4 large green bell peppers
    1 cup of cooked brown rice
    1 lb 93% lean ground turkey
    2 garlic cloves
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1 can diced tomatoes (with italian seasoning is better)
    tomato sauce - enough to cover the bottom of a casserole dish
    2 tbsp canola oil
    salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut bell peppers in half lengthwise; discard seeds and membranes. Place in a casserole dish - the bottom of the dish should be covered with a thin layer of tomato sauce.
In a pan, add canola oil and sautee the onions until translucent (5-7 minutes). Add minced garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Then add the ground turkey and brown.

In a large bowl, combine the cooked ground turkey, brown rice, and diced tomatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Scoop mixture into each bell pepper half.

Bake, covered, for 30 minutes. If desired, uncover, sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top, and bake an additional 5 minutes.

    Easy to make. I like spicy food so I choose a can of dice tomatoes with jalapeno peppers and used a spicy mexican style tomato sauce. Will make this again & again. - 1/28/09

    I tried this recipe and was a hit! Not only did my boyfriend enjoy it with me, but my roommates couldn't resist a taster as well! We like things a little spicier around here, so I cooked the turkey meat with some taco seasoning (20 cals for the packet)! Great flavour!! - 8/3/08

    Excellent!!! The filling could be cut in half and you'd still have plenty, but I liked being able to freeze the surplus for a future meal. I'll either use that in peppers again, or as a tortilla/lettuce wrap, in bread bowls, or ??? It was so good! - 4/8/08

    Absolutely delicious! We chopped up more onions to include and also added some mushrooms and a cup of spinach (it wilted and mixed well into the mix) and it was awesome! Will make again for sure! - 12/5/10

    We love them. However, in place of turkey, I grilled a couple of chicken breasts and diced them up. - 5/12/08
