Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed peppers are a regular at my house. I’m not sure we have ever used the same recipe twice for stuffed peppers, and that’s one of the things that I like about stuffed peppers – you can get very creative and it usually turns out well! Here’s the basic recipe that we use:

Prepare 4 peppers by cutting the tops off and cutting the seeds out.

Stuffing:

– one lb mild sausage (or you can use a different spice level, ground turkey, )

– 1 diced onion

– salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste

– 2 medium sized carrots, chopped

– 2 tomatoes, diced

Brown sausage and sauté veggies, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Add in your grain of choice if you want a carb in the meal – rice, quinoa, barley, etc. We have been using a multi-grain medley from Minute Rice (2 cups cooked). Mix together with sausage and veggie mixture.

Stuff mixture into peppers, bake at 400 degF for 30 minutes, then enjoy!
