½cupgrainsrice or quinoa or a mix of both uncooked
1 ¼cupschicken broth
2tablespoonsextra virgin olive oil
1 14ozcan petite diced tomatoes
salt and pepper
¼teaspooncrushed red peppers
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Cut off the tops of the bell peppers and clean out the insides. Place in a baking dish, cut side up. Place the peppers in the oven while it is preheating. Once the oven is finished preheating (it's reached 350 degrees F), keep the peppers in the oven until you are ready to stuff.
While the peppers are roasting, cook the grains (I used a mix of wild rice, quinoa, and farro) and cook in the chicken broth until cooked through.
Heat the extra virgin olive oil in a large skillet and add the onion and garlic. Cook until fragrant. Add in the ground turkey and cook until all the pink is gone. Add in the diced tomatoes and it's juice, salt and pepper, crushed red peppers, oregano, basil, and gains then heat through.
Fold in ⅔ of the cheese into the turkey mixture.
Carefully remove the peppers and stuff with the filling then top with the remaining cheese. Bake for another 10 - 15 minutes.
