Made stuffed bell peppers for the first time...not hard at all...I am a big whole foods and garden person so ingredients used came from my herb & vegetable garden, an Iowa farm, and whole foods,
I used 4 medium bell peppers (picked fresh from a farm in Iowa and my garden) but u will use 4-7
prepare 1/2 cup brown rice
browned 1 lb ground turkey breast - during middle of browning process drain any fat then add 1/2 c balsamic vinegar a whole medium onion chopped, 5 gloves of garlic, 1/4 c parsley- (I used 1 bushy curly parsley from my herb garden), .-vegetables will soften as turkey continues to brown;
now add 1 jar of tomato sauce (whatever you like) and 1/4 cup ketchup,
add 1/8 tsp chili powder,1/2 tsp smoked paparika,1/4 tsp garlic powder & onion powder, 1/2 tsp black pepper- seasonings can vary to your taste, I didn't use salt but season to your liking), let simmer,
after 15 minutes of simmer add rice and 1/2 cup parmesean cheese simmer another 20 minutes
now stuff peppers, top each pepper with a spread of ketchup with sprinkle of parmesean cheese on top...
