This entrée is oh so worthy of what I want for myself. Full of a rainbow of vegetables, it has nutrients and fiber galore along with a healthy amount of lean protein with ground turkey and peas. The brown rice is a whole food and clean carbohydrate. Goat cheese is clean too and a yummy source of protein and fat. This recipe and its quick easy hacks make it easy to choose worthiness for myself.
Veggies have a starring role in these stuffed peppers. I can't believe I didn't think I liked peppers for my first couple of decades!
The quick comes from 2 things:
1. Using mostly frozen veggies that are already washed and chopped
2. Microwaving the frozen veggies and peppers about half way to save oven time. If you don't need the extra time, you can bake them for 1 hour at 350.
Adding an abundance of vegetables to recipes is a great way to add nutrients and make them satisfying and filling.
