Tips

If you want to speed up the baking process, you can bake your peppers while you are preparing the meat mixture.
Once the mixture is done, carefully stuff your peppers and you can cut your baking time in half.


Directions

Pre-heat oven to 350 F
Cook rice according to package.
While rice is cooking, cut the tops off of the peppers, remove seeds and stems, save any extra pepper around stem to chop and put into meat mixture.
Place peppers into a square baking dish, so they will stand up with opening at top. if your peppers are too lopsided to stand up, you can cut them long ways and stuff them as Pepper Boats instead.
In a LARGE frying pan, heat oil to med-high heat add onion, pepper tops, and garlic, saute about 1 minute. add ground Turkey. And saute until browned and no pink remains.
Add Soy sauce, tomato sauce, diced tomato and all spices to meat mixture stirring well. cook about 2 -3 minutes. add baby spinach and cooked rice. saute stirring well until the spinach just starts to wilt.
Stuff mixture into prepared peppers.
Top with cheese and scallions
pour 1/4 cup of water in the bottom of the pan or place a small amount of tomato sauce under each pepper to keep from burning.
Bake uncovered for 45 min to 1 hour.
