Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup wild rice
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 lb 99% lean ground turkey
  • 2/3 cup low-sodium natural tomato juice
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 10 grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 4 assorted medium sweet bell peppers (red orange and yellow)
  • 2 oz part-skim mozzarella

Preparation

  1. Bring rice and 2 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high. Reduce heat to medium, cover and continue to boil for 25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, add oil and onions to a large sauté pan over medium-high. Sauté onions for 2 minutes, then add garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add turkey, juice and seasoning. Cook until turkey is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and black pepper, cooking, covered, for 5 minutes. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  3. Fill a large pot half-full with water and bring to a boil. Cut tops from bell peppers and remove all seeds. Add bell peppers and tops to water and return to a boil. Cook, covered, for 4 to 5 minutes or until tender. Remove bell peppers and dry on paper towel.
  4. Drain rice and add to turkey mixture. In a glass dish, stand bell peppers and fill with turkey-rice mixture. Sprinkle with mozzarella and add bell pepper top. Bake for 15 minutes.
