DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine quinoa and chicken stock in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer for 15-17 minutes until all of the liquid is absorbed.
  • Meanwhile, cut the tops off of the bell peppers, remove the seeds and set aside in a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Chop the tops of the peppers (will add to the meat mixture later).
  • Heat the olive oil over medium high heat in a large sauce pan and saute the garlic.
  • Add chopped onions and peppers. Saute 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the ground turkey, worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper to the pan. Cook until the meat is browned.
  • Add the tomatoes and tomato paste. Stir to combine. Cook until most of the liquid is absorbed (5 minutes).
  • Add the cooked quinoa to the meat mixture. Stir thoroughly.
  • Fill each pepper with the mixture. Cook in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  • After 25 minutes, top each pepper with italian cheese. Cook five more minutes (cheese will melt and begin to brown).
  • Serve immediately :) Enjoy!
