Simple Stuffed Roasted Bell Peppers

I made this stuffed pepper last week when my husband was away - it was so quick and simple, I had to share the recipe!  Easy to portion for one or many.  Very delicious, and of course 21 Day Fix approved!



Serves 1

Ingredients

  • 1 red container (3/4 cup) lean ground turkey 
  • 1/2 yellow container (1/4 cup) cooked brown rice (or quinoa)
  • 1 blue container  (1/3 cup) shredded cheese, divided
  • 1 bell pepper
  • Seasonings to taste
Directions

Preheat toaster oven to 400 degrees 

Heat a small skillet over medium heat.  Brown turkey and add seasonings as desired - I kept it simple with a roasted garlic and herb mix, salt and pepper.  

While turkey is browning, prep your pepper - cut the top off, then use your knife to separate the ribs to remove the center seeds.

After turkey is cooked, stir in the rice and most of the shredded cheddar.  Add turkey mixture to bell pepper and top with remaining cheese.  Bake for approximately 30 minutes, shorter if you like crisp peppers.  The longer you let it go, the more of a roasted pepper texture you will get (my preference).

Container Equivalent:
  • 1 Green
  • 1 Red
  • 1 Blue
  • 1/2 Yellow
