  • STUFFING
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1½ cups (10 ounces) of cooked quinoa

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F. Bring a large stock pot of water to a boil. Add 1 Tablespoon of salt and the pepper halves. Cook for 3 minutes then remove and place cut side down on a clean dish towel.
  2. Combine the stuffing ingredients. Using clean paper towels, pat the pepper halves dry on the inside and out and then divide the stuffing evenly between the peppers.
