Healthy Stuffed Peppers!

I’m back folks! Not with a post about my Saturday (that will be up tomorrow!), but with another recipe!

Tonight for dinner, I mentioned that I was cooking stuffed peppers. I got the recipe from a pin on pinterest, and it looked like a really good healthy recipe. It was weight watchers friendly and everything! Well, I got to looking at the recipe and calculating some things, and I realized that the nutritional information given was way off. Supposedly only 251 calories for one whole stuffed pepper… nope. Try over 400 calories! Yikes. So, I did some tweaking and made the recipe just a bit healthier! My version gives you one whole pepper (two halves) for only 330 calories!

You’ll need:

1/2 cup of quick brown rice

2 and 1/4 cup of plain tomato sauce

12 oz of lean ground turkey

3/4 cup of fat free mozzarella cheese

3 medium bell peppers

First, you can prep your peppers. Cut them in half lengthwise and cut out the white membrane and seeds.

Place them in a baking dish (or roasting pan).

Brown the turkey in a sauce pan and cook the rice separately. Then, add the rice and 1 & 1/2 cups of tomato sauce to the sauce pan with the turkey.

Evenly distribute the mixture into the peppers.

Take the remaining 3/4 cup of tomato sauce and pour on top of peppers.

Cover and bake at 400 for 45 minutes. Add cheese on top when peppers are done and let melt.

And there you have it! Six halves. Three servings. (Two servings if you’ve got an extremely hungry husband) And so so so so good! 🙂

Hope you get a chance to try this out! Let me know how it works for you!

Thanks for reading! 🙂
