Stuffed Pepper with Rosemary Ground Turkey Breast and Mixed Grains November 2, 2012

Jamie says: I moved and can’t wait to start my new job with Publix on Monday!

I feel like I haven’t cooked in forever (between vacationing, traveling, and enjoying dinners at home with my family). Here’s my first dinner in my new apartment:

Stuffed Pepper with Rosemary Ground Turkey Breast and Mixed Grains

It was a memorable first meal. I enjoyed the varying colors, flavors, and textures.

Food is art

Oh, and I LOVE my new kitchen! Lots of space to make wonderful foods, like this dinner!

Dip in the tzatziki sauce (yogurt dip) for smooth creamy deliciousness

Stuffed Pepper with Rosemary Ground Turkey Breast and Mixed Grains

  • 1/3 cup rice blend- light brown rice with whole wheat pearl couscous, brown flaxseed, and black lentils (Texmati, Rice Select: Royal Blend with Flaxseed)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 slice onion
  • 1/4 lb ground turkey breast
  • 1/8 tsp rosemary
  • 1/8 tsp oregano
  • dash garlic salt
  • dash freshly ground pepper
  • 1 piece roasted red pepper (Mancini)
  • 1/2 oz fresh mozzarella cheese (Sorrento)
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1/4 cup cucumber garlic tzatziki sauce (Green Mountain Farms)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a medium pot, add rice blend and water. Bring to a boil. Stir, reduce heat to a simmer (medium-low), cover, and cook for about 15 minutes or until water is absorbed.
  3. Cut bell pepper in half. Scoop out seeds. Drizzle both sides with 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil. Place in a baking dish. Cook for 25 minutes. Place on a plate, cut-side up.
  4. Chop onion. Add 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil to a saute pan on medium heat. Add chopped onion and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add ground meat, rosemary, oregano, garlic salt, freshly ground pepper, and red pepper flakes. Use a spatula to combine and crumble meat. Cook for about 6 minutes or until meat is cooked throughout.
  5. Chop roasted red pepper. Grate cheese. Add chopped red pepper, grated cheese, and fresh spinach to rice. Stir until spinach is wilted. Add ground turkey and 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil to rice. Stir.
  6. Scoop turkey-rice mixture into cooked bell pepper halves on plate. Serve tzatziki sauce on the side for dipping. Enjoy!
