Stuffed Bell Peppers
Bell peppers are one of our favorite veggies especially in the summer! This easy to prepare stuffed bell peppers recipe can be tailored to your taste preferences and to the whatever veggies are fresh and available at your local grocery store or farmers market.
✿ Bell peppers have a broad range of antioxidants including vitamin C & E.
- 4 Bell Peppers (we used red, yellow, and orange)
- Ground turkey or chicken
- Half of a Red Onion
- 2 Cloves of Garlic
- 2 Tomatoes
- 1/2 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- Olive Oil
- Salt & Pepper
Bring a pot of water, large enough to hold all of your bell peppers, to boil. Cut off the tops of your bell peppers and scoop out the seeds. Place the clean bell peppers into the bowling water for about 5-8 minutes, or until they have started to soften. Take them out and place them upside down on a paper towel to dry.
Preheat your oven to 375°F. Chop the onions, mushrooms, and tomatoes. Finely chop the garlic. Heat a splash of olive oil in a sauté pan and add the garlic and onions. Cook until it begins turning translucent and add the ground turkey or chicken. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cook until your meat has browned and is all the way cooked through. Remove the meat and veggie mixture and place it in a bowl. Add another splash of olive oil to the sauté pan and then add the chopped tomatoes and mushrooms. Cook until they have both softened, about 3 – 5 minutes. Remove from the pan and add to the bowl with the meat.Mix the meat, veggies, and shredded mozzarella together.
Scoop the mixture into each bell pepper until they are completely full. Place the peppers up-right into a baking dish and sprinkle the top with a little more mozzarella cheese. Place the dish into the oven for 25-30 minutes. Take out and enjoy!
