recipe: stuffed peppers

As I mentioned in an earlier post, Bethenny Frankel regularly posts great recipes to her website. My fellow intern let me try the stuffed red pepper that he made based on her recipe, and I got excited to buy the ingredients and make them myself!

Ingredients

  • 6 peppers (cut off top and bottom and use them)
  • 1 pound turkey meat
  • 1 cup quinoa (cooked)
  • ½ large onion
  • 2 cups jarred tomato sauce
  • 1.5 tsp garlic salt
  • 2 tsp tabasco
  • 2.5 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoon toasted pine nuts
  • Parsley for garnish

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cook quinoa per directions. Cook ground turkey over medium heat until pink is gone. Cut the tops off peppers and chop into pieces. Combine with chopped onion, garlic salt and tomato sauce. Saute over medium heat and add remaining ingredients except the feta and pine nuts. Combine the above with cooked turkey, quinoa, pine nuts and feta cheese (save a small amount of feta to sprinkle on top later on). Remove the inside of the peppers. Portion the mixture into each of the peppers and place them on a baking sheet. Top with feta cheese. Bake for 30 minutes.
