Stuffed Peppers

Yes, I have definitely been MIA for the past few weeks but I am back and have a diploma! Yay! (Well, technically it is on its way:) Try this stuffed peppers recipe I got from my friend Kristie. My husband and I love peppers and have tried lots of different versions of stuffed peppers. But Kristie's takes the cake for us and is now a regular meal at our home. Sometimes we just make a few and use it as a side, but it is so filling and complete that sometimes we add ground turkey and make it the main dish. Either way it is so fresh and flavorful from the herbs and spices, and the brown rice makes it filling as well.

Kristie's Stuffed Peppers


4 peppers of your choice (we LOVE the red, orange, and yellow combo pack that you can get a Costco:)
2 large tomatoes-diced
1-2 broccoli crowns-diced
3-4 green onions-diced
1/2-1 yellow onion-diced
1 c. chicken broth
1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 garlic cloves minced
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp rubbed sage
1 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp pepper
1 c. cooked brown rice
1 c cheddar cheese
1/2 lb. ground turkey (optional)


1. Slice 3 of the peppers in half, length wise. Then de-seed and wash them. Set aside to dry. In a large skillet sauté onion, garlic & herbs in olive oil until the onions are slightly opaque. Add other pepper, tomatoes, broccoli, green onion & chicken broth. Let simmer on medium-low for 3-5 min. Add brown rice simmer on medium-low for 3-5 min. Fill each half pepper half full of mixture. Top with cheese. Bake at 350 for 15-25min. Makes 6 halves.

W We like to top them with fresh salsa, but they are great plain too. Enjoy!
