This picture shows my stuffed tomatoes, but you can use peppers instead, which I actually prefer! Or a combination of both! Just a matter of personal preference! Also, can be made with lean turkey or beef, again, your preference.
1 1/2 lb 93% lean ground turkey, or beef
3-4 large red bell peppers, or large tomatoes
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 onion, minced
1 tbsp chopped parsley
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Worchestershire Sauce (few splashes)
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1 cups cooked brown rice rice
Grated Parmesan or Pecorino Romano Cheese
Olive oil spray
Salt & pepper to taste!
For the peppers, I hollow them out and par boil them for about ten minutes. set aside. For tomatoes, just hollow them out and set aside.
In a saucepan, sauté your onions & garlic until translucent and softened, set aside. Next, in brown your meat of choice (lean beef, turkey). Once meat is browned, drain it, and add onions & garlic and combine. Now I add my herbs, and seasoning. Next, add either my favorite jar sauce, or homemade sauce. A few tablespoons or so. A few splashes of Worcestershire Sauce, a healthy sprinkle of really good grated parmesan cheese, and about a cup or so of brown rice (that has been pre-cooked). Combine and let simmer for a few minutes. When ready to finish. place the 8 peppers or tomatoes in a shallow casserole dish, sprayed with olive oil spray, fill with meat filling, pour more tomato sauce over the top of all…sprinkle wish parmesan cheese. Cover with foil and bake till meat is heated through and tomatoes/peppers have softened! Serve with a fresh salad!
