Curry Stuffed Bell Peppers Recipe

Serving Size: 1 stuffed pepper

Servings Per Recipe: 4

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 lb. extra-lean ground turkey or chicken
  • 1 medium zucchini, diced
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
  • ½ teaspoon cloves
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 ½ cups quinoa, cooked to package instructions
  • ¼ cup chopped, fresh cilantro
  • 4 medium bell peppers (any color) tops cut away, seeds and white membrane removed

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 375ºF.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and cook 2-3 minutes until translucent.

Add turkey - breaking up clumps and stirring until cooked through (it will turn greyish white).

Add zucchini, curry powder, SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, cloves, garlic powder and pepper. Stir and cook 2-3 minutes more. Remove from heat.

Stir in chicken broth, quinoa, and cilantro until well mixed. Spoon ¼ of mixture in to each bell pepper. Place peppers in an 8x8 inch baking dish, standing up. Add enough water to cover the bottom of the baking dish about 1/8 inch deep.

Bake 25-30 minutes in preheated oven until peppers are tender and mixture is heated through.
