In an attempt to try something different for lunch, I made these turkey stuffed bell peppers. With four main ingredients – ground turkey breast, sweet potato, passata, and bell peppers – they were quite filling and tasty.

Ingredients

1 lb. ground turkey breast

1 medium sweet potato, grated

1 1/2 cups passata

3 bell peppers, halved and de-veined, de-seeded

1 tablespoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon cumin powder

1 teaspoon coriander powder

sea salt to taste

2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons of pine nuts, divided

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 230°C.
  2. Heat a skillet and add the extra virgin olive oil.
  3. Add the ground turkey and lightly sauté for 3-5 minutes, until just colored.
  4. Add the grated sweet potato and spices and mix well.
  5. Add the passata and cook for another 5 minutes.
  6. Wash and halve the bell peppers. De-seed and de-vein the peppers.
  7. Place the bell pepper halves on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  8. Evenly spoon the turkey mixture into the bell peppers.
  9. Top each stuffed bell pepper with a sprinkling of pine nuts.
  10. Bake the stuffed bell peppers for 30 minutes.
