Clean Stuffed Peppers

Clean eating has been going great with just a few hiccups. And for the most part it is becoming second nature and must easier. Don't get me wrong it is still a daily struggle but making new recipes and trying new things have become a fun challenge! I love bell peppers and I haven't made stuffed peppers in awhile so I thought I would clean up the recipe I have used before.

Clean Stuffed Peppers

  • 6 Bell Peppers
  • 1 1/2 Pounds Ground Turkey
  • 3 15 Ounce Cans Organic Tomato Paste
  • 2 Cans Organic Diced Tomatoes
  • 2 Cups Brown Rice 
  • 1/2 Red Onion
  • 1/2 Cup Chicken or Veggie Broth
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Chili Powder

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cook brown rice according to the instructions.
  3. Slice the tops of peppers off and remove cores. Set aside the tops.
  4. Place your peppers in a baking dish (with a lid if you have one. Don't panic if you don't have one.) Make sure dish is small enough so the peppers will snuggly stand upright.
  5. Pour 2 of the 3 cans of sauce into the bottom to the pot so that your peppers will sit into the sauce. 
  6. Remove the seed from the pepper tops and chop up the top of the peppers, as well as the onion.
  7. Put your veggies and diced tomatoes into a pan with the olive oil and sauté until they are nice and soft, Add the cooked rice to the veggie mixture.
  8. Place cooked veggies in a large bowl and set to the side.
  9. Using the same pan you cooked your veggies in, cook your ground turkey with the broth. Add spices to your meat.
  10. In the last 3 to 5 minutes of cooking add the veggie and rice mixture to the meat.
  11. Return entire mixture mixture to the large mixing bowl. Add last can of tomato sauce. Stir well.
  12. Fill you peppers with the meat mixture.
  13. Cover with lid. If you don't have one cover with tin foil. 
  14. Bake for about an hour or until your peppers are very soft. 
  15. Cool and serve with a little sauce on top! 

This turned out so good and were a hit with everyone even my toddlers! 
 Hope you guys enjoy!!
