Attention all men! Here is a dish just for you. Well, the ladies love it too – but sometimes it’s hard to please our men when cooking healthy (can I get an amen!?)
Here is a simple stuffed bell pepper recipe that will do the trick. It is low-fat, gluten free and low calorie and is sure to fill you up. I only ate one – and have left overs for tonight!
You will need: 4 green bell peppers, 1 package of ground turkey meat, ½ cup ketchup, 2 tbsp. garlic powder, ½ cup chopped onions, 2 tbsp. Italian seasoning and a pinch of salt and pepper.
The first thing I did was cut the tops of the bell peppers. Here is a simple guide that can instruct you to cut the tops off perfectly. I ran some water in the middle – just to wash out the seeds. I brought a pot of water to boil on the stove and dropped the peppers in there for about 3-5 minutes. Just to get them moist and warm.
In a separate bowl, I emptied out the package of thawed ground turkey meat – and added in first the garlic, Italian seasoning, onions, salt and pepper. With my hands, I rolled all this into the meat mixture. And then took the combo to the skillet. I lightly browned the meat. And then dumped the ketchup on top and mixed it in slowly.
Preheat the oven to 350 – and fill a separate pan with just a line of water at the bottom (enough for the pepper to lightly sit in while baking.) Fill up the hollow peppers with your meat mixture – and then set them in the oven for about 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, I topped my bell peppers with a bit of Parmesan and a light squirt of ketchup. It gives it a little meatloaf taste. Viola! Serve – everyone, including your man, will love these!
