Red & Green Stuffed Bell Peppers

Published by at 10:21 pm under Cooking at Home

One of the reasons why summer is our favorite season is because of the abundance of fresh produce which brings about a lot of fun and colorful meals that we can prepare. Bell peppers are one of those vegetables that are so versatile because it can have so many uses – in fajitas, salads, stir fry, and in this case – can be stuffed! For this post, we present our recipe for Red & Green Stuffed Bell Peppers using ground turkey and fresh herbs from the garden.

For the stuffing, we used 1.25 lbs of lean ground turkey (you can substitute for ground beef or chicken). To add flavor, we also added red onion, garlic, basil, sage, garlic powder, and salt. Also, add an egg and some bread crumbs.

We used green bell peppers from our garden, and we bought the red peppers at the farmer's market. Together, it really shouts Christmas colors!

After you finish stuffing, sear both sides of the bell peppers over the stove to brown them, about 2-3 minutes each side.

Transfer to a baking sheet and sprinkle some asiago cheese on top (that was the only kind we had on hand), then put in a 350-degree oven for 15-20 minutes.

To eat alongside the stuffed bell peppers, we cooked some wild rice that we purchased at Trader Joe's. It gives rice a jazzier look and taste, especially when you get bored of the regular white rice.

We hope you find some inspiration from this simple idea to prepare your own version of stuffed bell peppers (or stuffed tomatoes!) and bring some colorful produce into your meals.

    These stuffed peppers look really delicious. I like the rice medley too. I will have to look and see if I can find that in my local market.

    Having just left the market, we saw a few purple bell peppers. We may have to go back and pick them up to try another stuffed pepper recipe. Seeing yours is bringing on a craving.

    You know I saw small peppers, so colorful like this last week, and should have gotten them…your dish is an inspiration, and I have been hungry for them and stuffed cabbage lately, so yummy. Your right dangerous neighbors we would be, but I would have you in the pool doing water aerobics with me :) !
