Turkey and Feta Stuffed Peppers

adapted from Eat, Live, Run

What you’ll need:

  • 4 large green bell peppers.  (I only used 2 peppers and have a ton of filling left over.)
  • 1.5 pound ground turkey.
  • 1 28-oz can diced tomatoes.
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste.
  • 1 yellow onion, diced.
  • 1 tbsp olive oil.
  • 2 stalks celery, diced.
  • 2 tsp minced garlic.
  • 2 tsp dried oregano.
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes.
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup feta cheese.

How to make it:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet on the stove. Once hot, add the onion and celery, and saute for 5 minutes until soft. Add the minced garlic and continue sauteing for another minute. Turn the heat to high. Add the tomato paste to the skillet and mash the onions, celery and garlic together with the paste. Cook for three minutes, stirring continuously. Add the ground turkey and brown with the veggies. This should take about six minutes. Then, add the diced tomatoes, salt, basil, oregano and red pepper flakes. Bring mixture to a simmer and cook for about 15-20 minutes, until sauce reduces and isn’t as runny. Remove pan from heat and stir in the feta cheese. Place the green bell peppers on a tin foil-lined sheet tray. Fill each pepper with turkey and feta mixture. Once all peppers have been filled, cover peppers with a large piece of tin foil and seal. Bake peppers for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
