My Next Lean in 15 meal was Turkey Stuffed Peppers which I have never tried before. I wanted to make them for my dinner as I feel I’m always having the same thing, usually chicken and rice which can get very boring so I was hoping this would add some flavour to my meal.
500g Turkey mince
1 Red onion (Chopped into small pieces)
Mushrooms (I used about 5, chopped into small pieces)
1 Garlic clove (Crushed or finely chopped)
400g Chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp Tomato puree
Firstly pre-heat the oven to about 180c, then chop your peppers straight down the middle and remove the seeds.
Once this has been done place the peppers onto an oven tray and drizzle with olive oil. Place the tray in the oven and cook the peppers for about 15 minutes or until they have softened.
Whilst the peppers are cooking chop the onion, mushrooms and crush the garlic clove. Add a teaspoon of olive oil to a frying pan and fry the turkey mince until they are brown, then add the mushrooms, garlic and onion and fry for another minute or so.
Once the onions and mushrooms have softened add the chopped tomatoes and ground cumin, I just sprinkled about a teaspoon of cumin over the mince. Finally add about a tablespoon of soy sauce to the mixture and stir thoroughly.
Check your peppers are soft and remove from the oven, parts of the pepper may have browned slightly but that’s fine. Spoon the mince into the peppers and finish by sprinkling some mozzarella cheese over the top. I had some of the mixture left over which I put in the freezer to have for my dinner another day 🙂
I wasn’t sure if I would like stuffed peppers but I’ve got to say I was really happy with how they turned out, I would definitely recommend them!
