Clean Eating Recipe: Turkey Stuffed Peppers

I made these last night and they were YUM! Husband approved and this made enough for lunch today.

Ingredients:


1 pound of lean turkey (I don't eat red meat anymore, if it's a special occasion I'll have steak but it's always turkey meat in place of red in our house)
Garlic (I estimated, I don't know how much)
1/2 onion
chopped fresh cilantro (again estimate)
tsp(?) Garlic Powder
tbsp(?) Cumin
salt
3 large red peppers
1 cup fat free chicken broth (I used TJ's, if you are using another brand make sure it's clean without MSG or extra salt, etc.)
8oz. tomato sauce
1/2 cup cooked rice
Olive Oil
shredded cheese optional or nutritional yeast if you want to keep it 100% clean

For those new to this site and frustrated with my guessing on amounts and my cooking lingo, go ahead and refer yourself to here and decide if you want to come back and join this recipe. 

Great! You're back!

Directions: Heat oven to 400 degrees. In a pan/skillet/whatever you find heat up the olive oil and cook the onion and garlic. 
Add the turkey, salt, garlic powder and cumin and brown turkey.
Add your tomato sauce and 1/2 cup of chicken broth (save the other half for later). Mix well and simmer for 5 minutes. Add cooked rice and meat together. 
I allowed myself some cheese and you better believe I went HAM on this


In a separate baking dish add the bell peppers cut lengthwise. I bought 3 red peppers but one of them was bad so I had to use a green pepper. Red is a lot easier to stuff than green. 

Add all the mixture to the peppers and pour the remaining 1/2 cup of chicken broth to the bottom.

Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes.

If you're adding cheese do it AFTER it's done cooking.

  1. All right, I began taking green juice around 2 years prior after I heard my cousin discussing taking a green drink item and "alkalizing" your physique.
