Foodie Friday: Turkey Stuffed Peppers- Yum!

I usually do my meal planning on Saturday, and then go grocery shopping. We had these stuffed peppers on Tuesday night, and it was all I could think about for about 2 days!

pepper

4 bell peppers, any color will do but I love orange!
1 lb ground turkey
4 servings of brown rice, cooked per package instructions
1/2 C non-fat, plain Greek yogurt
salt and pepper to taste
Croutons, crushed

Prepare rice per package instructions and set aside.

Slice tops off of bell peppers, pull out seed cluster and discard. Set peppers aside.

Brown your ground turkey in a skillet over medium heat. You may want to use a teeny bit of olive oil or spray with a non-stick cooking spray because ground turkey doesn’t have much fat in it.

Mix in prepared rice, Greek yogurt, salt and pepper.

Place peppers, cut side up in an 8×8 baking dish. Fill each pepper with 1/4 of the turkey mixture. Top with crushed croutons. Pour a little water or broth in the bottom of the baking dish. This will help steam the peppers in the oven as everything else warms through. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.
