Stuff It! Peppers That Is.

Peppers are great little colorful bowls to put some healthy fare.  It’s a great way to use up ingredients in your fridge or reinvent some left-overs.  Any grains will do as well as sauteed veggies, meats, tofu, etc.  The good thing about these is they can be made easily for everyone’s tastes and dietary restrictions.  Last night I sauteed some ground turkey with fresh thyme and garlic.  Then cooked some black forbidden rice.  I combined the rice and turkey and added some spinach chiffanade and filled the half sliced pepper.  I topped it off with a bit of parmesean cheese and put it in the oven to bake for about 35 minutes.   These are quick and easy and pretty too.  They went with tomato soup and a crusty french baguette.

(As for those dietary restrictions you may notice something from the photo.  Two are without cheese – my husband is cutting back.  Two have just the rice mixture without turkey – for my daughter.  But it was easy to please everyone.)
