Main, Poultry | October 18, 2016 | By

Asian Caucasian is all about healthy and flavorful, and these tasty stuffed peppers are no exception! They’re a piece of cake to make!  The ground turkey “stuffing” packs a slight punch with Asian spices, jalapeño peppers, and red chili paste. Gotta include healthy kale and brown rice. Top with your favorite herbs, like fresh cilantro. Did I mention it was good for you? 🙂 

Stuffed Peppers with Turkey and Rice
Recipe type: 4
  • 4 large red and yellow bell peppers, seeded (tops removed and chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 1 8 oz. package button mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • Pinch of Kosher salt
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • ¾ cup cooked brown rice
  • 2 cups frozen or fresh chopped kale
  • ½ cup light coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon Thai red curry paste
  • 1 teaspoon sambal oelek (red chili paste)

Add in the ground turkey and cook until slightly browned. Add in mushrooms and ginger and cook another 2 minutes. Season with salt and stir in brown rice and chopped kale.
  3. In a small sauce pan on another burner, heat coconut milk, red curry paste, and sambal oelek on medium high heat until just boiling. Stir sauce into sauté pan with other ingredients. Sprinkle in cilantro and squeeze of lime juice.

Sambal oelek can be found at specialty Asian markets and select grocery stores.
