Turkey Quinoa Stuffed Peppers


Now, I am a fan for trying new recipes! This one in particular I just HAD to share! The flavor was a party in my mouth and really filling but nutritious too 😉

🔸3 bell peppers
🔸1 lb ground turkey
🔸1 jar marinara/tomato sauce 
🔸Big ole bunch of spinach
🔸Olive oil (my favorite heart-healthy oil to cook with❤️)
🔸1/2 cup dry quinoa (just boil with 1 cup water and set aside)

These are some of the ingredients I used but using a different sauce will probably taste just as good👍
First, preheat oven to 350 F.

Sauté the chopped up spinach with olive oil and garlic powder. Then, brown the turkey and add in with the spinach. 

Once the turkey looks cooked, add 2 cups sauce and 1 cup cooked quinoa and turn off burner.

Next, you will slide the peppers lengthwise and core out the seeds like this:

Full each half with turkey quinoa mixture.

Bake in the oven for about 45 minutes.

Then of course you have to add cheese. Yes, add it! It’s like the icing on the cake…. Except it’s cheese 😍

TA DA! I served them with beans and avocado 👌
