(Din4) Summer Stuffed PeppersD4) Stu
8 medium sweet red, yellow or green peppers
1-1/2 lb. ground turkey
I medium onion, finely chopped
1 medium carrot, shredded
1/2 cup finely chopped cabbage
1/2 cup shredded zucchini
1 garlic clove, minced
1 can (28 oz.) diced tomoatoes, undrained
1/2 cup cooked brown rice
Cut the tops off each pepper and set aside. Remove seeds and membranes. Cook whole peppers in boiling water for 2-3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove and invert on paper towels to drain. Remove stems from pepper tops and chop enough of the top to make 1/3 cup. In a skillet, brown turkey over medium heat. Add onion, carrot, cabbage, zucchini, garlic and chopped peppers; saute until tender. Add tomatoes and rice. Stuff hot meat mixture into peppers. Makes 8 servings.
Tips: I make this recipe with whatever veggies I want or with what I have on hand. So if you don't like carrots, cabbage or zucchini try a veggie you do like. I like to use corn, peas, carrots, etc. Also, if the kids won't eat a stuffed pepper, I put the meat mixture by itself in a little 8X8 pan and bake it that way for the kids.
