Stuffed peppers filled with just about anything are great, but when filled with ground turkey and veggies, they are even better than the traditional beef and rice.

  • 4 red bell peppers (or whichever color you prefer)
  • 1 pound 93% lean ground turkey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, minced
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, small dice
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper, small dice
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cut the tops off the peppers, and remove the seeds. Cook peppers (and tops) in boiling water for 5 minutes; drain and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the turkey until evenly brown. Set aside.
  4. In the same pan, heat the olive oil and then add the onion, mushrooms, zucchini, green and yellow bell pepper, and spinach, cooking until tender.
  5. Return turkey to the skillet and add in the remaining ingredients.
  6. Stuff the peppers with the mixture.
  7. Place the peppers into a sided casserole dish, replace tops (if desired), and bake for 15 minutes.
