I’m relatively new to the world of stuffed peppers but they have quickly become one of my favorite foods to make.
They are easy, quick and you can make lots of different variations. The one I’m going to share with you today is one of my early creations and I think you’ll really like it.

Rice and Turkey Stuffed Peppers
4 bell peppers, cored and rinsed out
1 cup long grain brown rice, cooked
1lb ground turkey
1/2 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
7-8 twists of ground black pepper
1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
In a large pan add the oil and heat over medium heat. Add the turkey, onion, garlic and salt and pepper and cook until no pink remains in turkey, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, boil the peppers for 10 minutes. When done, remove from heat and set out on a baking dish.
When the turkey has no pink remaining add in the 1 cup of cooked rice and stir to mix. You may add an additional teaspoon of salt if so desired.
Spoon the turkey mixture into the peppers and sprinkle 1/4 cup of cheese on top of each pepper.
Bake the peppers for 35 minutes at 350 degrees in the oven. Remove and enjoy!
