There’s something special about a pepper stuffed with meat and rice, isn’t there?  Imagine the spices and the fragrance of the onion.  The color and crispness of the pepper.  There’s a sort of “authority” in a vegetable that you can stuff.  It almost says “Respect, Yo!”  (Almost.  Because if it did, it would be said in the most white voice imaginable, and that’s not cool, right?)  Anyway, Respect the Stuffed Peppers…yo.

Ingredients:

5 medium to large peppers

1 1/2 cups instant brown rice

1 1/3 cups water

1 lb ground turkey

1/2 large onion

1 teaspoon garlic salt

1 tablespoon thyme

3 tablespoons tomato paste

5.  Align the peppers on a baking sheet.  Use foil to level them if necessary.  You can also add toothpicks to the bottom of the peppers to help them stand on the baking sheet.  Just remember to remove them when you eat a pepper.

6.  Fill each pepper with the turkey-rice mixture and place the tops back onto the peppers.

7.  Bake for 30 minutes at 350 until the peppers are semi-soft.  This will ensure a good crunch when the peppers are reheated.
