Stuffed Peppers

Here's a different take on stuffed peppers using ground turkey and white beans. Roasting the peppers first before stuffing was nice, too.

4 large red peppers
1 lb ground turkey
2 T chili powder
1 T cumin
salt and pepper
1 large onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can white beans, rinsed
2 T tomato paste
6 large green olives, chopped
some mozzarella cheese

preheat oven 400

Cut tops off peppers and remove seeds. Grease a baking dish and fit the peppers into the dish upright and bake for 40 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the onion and garlic in some olive oil, brown the turkey, add the spices, tomatoes, olives, tomato paste, and beans and then simmer. When peppers are done, fill with turkey mixture, sprinkle on some cheese and bake for ten minutes.

I served with broccoli that I roasted right along with the peppers.
