Ingredients

  • 2 bell peppers (any color)

  • 1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed

  • 1/2 pound ground turkey

  • 1/2 small onion, diced

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes

  • 1/2 cup diced zucchini

  • 1/2 cup diced mushrooms

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Olive oil for cooking

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  2. Cut the tops off the bell peppers and remove the seeds and membranes. Place them in a baking dish, cut-side up, and set aside.

  3. Cook quinoa according to package instructions. Once cooked, set aside.

  4. In a large skillet, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium heat. Add the ground turkey, onion, and garlic. Cook until the turkey is browned and cooked through, breaking it up into crumbles.

  5. Add the diced tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms, dried basil, dried oregano, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Cook for an additional 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

  6. Stir in the cooked quinoa and mix well to combine all the ingredients. Adjust the seasoning if needed.

  7. Stuff the bell peppers with the quinoa and turkey mixture, pressing it down gently to fill the peppers completely.

  8. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until the peppers are tender.

  9. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes to lightly brown the tops.

  10. Once cooked, remove from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
