November 4, 2020


  • Ground turkey breast – 1 pack
  • Olive oil – 2 tbsp
  • 5 red bell peppers
  • Spinach – 3 large handfuls
  • Chickpeas – 1 box/can
  • Crushed tomatoes – 1/2 can
  • Chopped yellow onion – 1/2
  • Garlic – 2 cloves
  • Fresh parsley – 2 tbsp
  • Cumin – 1 tbsp
  • Oregano – 1 tbsp
  • Sea Salt – hefty pinch
  • Black pepper – to taste

To make:

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Heat olive oil in large skillet
  3. Add onion and garlic and simmer until soft
  4. Add ground turkey and spices and cook until meat is no longer pink
  5. Stir in crushed tomatoes and chickpeas and cook for 5 minutes
  6. Add spinach then cover the pan so spinach wilts
  7. While mixture is cooking cut the tops off of the peppers and remove the insides
  8. Fill each pepper completely and firmly pack it down with a spoon
  9. Use the top of the pepper as a lid and cover
  10. Cook for about 27-30 minutes or until tops of peppers start to turn brown
  11. Remove, garnish with more parsley, and enjoy!

*Make sure to really break up the turkey as it’s cooking. You don’t want huge chunks of turkey as smaller pieces makes for a better filling.

**I like to use a dish vs a flat pan. I feel like you can get away with no foil this way!

***You probably won’t use ALL of the meat mixture for the recipe. I love to keep it in a separate container to eat leftover with a salad or some sweet potatoes!
