Last week as I was viewing the contents of the refrigerator wondering what we would have for supper, I pulled out some great ingredients for what turned out to be a wonderful meal, if I have to say so myself. And as we sat down to enjoy our supper, I thought, as I often do when a successful meal is made, that we should have invited someone in for supper. And because we didn’t, we got to have the leftovers the following evening. Bonus!
These peppers are delicious and nutritious.
8 long sweet red peppers, seeds removed
1 pound ground turkey
1 onion sliced finely
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes (in oil), sliced thinly
2 -3 handfuls fresh spinach
Salt and pepper
Grated cheddar cheese
Cook ground chicken, drain juices. Add onion and sun dried tomatoes, cook for a few minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add spinach and cook for another minute or two till spinach begins to wilt.
Carefully fill peppers with ground turkey mixture. Bake in a 400 degree oven until the peppers soften and begin to brown. Top with a bit of cheddar cheese.
You will need to remove these carefully from the baking sheet.
These would be great served with some quinoa or rice.
