Sometimes it can get boring eating the same thing over and over again. In order to stay on track with healthy eating it's good to switch it up from time to time. Enter the Healthy Stuffed Bell Peppers Recipe. It's got everything you need to become a Buff Dude or Grrrl!


  • 4 Bell Peppers ( Yellow, Red or Green)
  • 1/2 c.(92g) Uncooked Quinoa
  • 1 lb.(454g) Ground Turkey
  • 1/2 Yellow Onion diced (1/2c. 43g)
  • 6 Baby Portobello Mushrooms  diced (1c 86g)
  • 1 can Diced Tomatoes (14.5 oz 411g)
  • 3 Cloves Garlic minced (1T. 9g)
  • 1/2 t. Tumeric
  • 1/2 t. Crushed Red Pepper
  • Salt and Pepper to taste. 













 First, cook your Quinoa as directed on your package. Next preheat your oven to 375.

Cut your peppers length wise and clean out the seeds and veins.  Place them face down and roast them for 10 to 15 minutes. 


While your Quinoa is cooking and Peppers are roasting sauté yours onions until they become translucent.  Add your minced garlic and stir for a minute.  Then add your diced mushrooms.  Stir and cook until the mushrooms become tender.


Pour this mixture into a bowl and set aside.

By now your Quinoa is done. Set it aside. Your peppers are done. Pull them out of the oven and set aside to cool a bit. Keep the oven on 375. You will use it again
Now cook up your ground turkey and  then add your spices and tomatoes and stir.

Now you add the Quinoa and mushroom mixture to the turkey and carefully stir it up.
Time to stuff those peppers!

With a spoon fill each pepper till its over the top. You will have left over stuffing. You will use this as a bed for each pepper after you take them back out of the oven.

Put these baby's back into your oven for 15 minute's.
 
This makes a great "make ahead meal". Place them in individual containers for your next week's lunchs or dinners!
 

Enjoy!!
