This Easy Ground Turkey Stuffed Peppers recipe is low-carb, gluten-free and super quick and easy to make! Enjoy!
I’ve been craving my Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Stuffed Peppers lately. Where I’m in Brazil, it isn’t very easy to find the type of sweet potato we have in North America. I decided for obvious reasons to mix things up and change my original recipe. This time, my stuffed peppers don’t have sweet potato, but instead, they have green beans and carrots, which were just veggies I have in my fridge.
I have to confess, these changes aren’t bad at all. Actually, it tastes really good and it’s faster to make! Green beans and carrots take less time to cook than the sweet potatoes. This time I also replaced the feta cheese for the parmesan because I think green beans go better with this cheese than with feta. Of course, if you want to make this recipe paleo friendly, you just need to omit the cheese. Don’t worry! These stuffed peppers will be flavorful even without the cheese.
This recipe is very easy to make. You just need to sauté the onions, garlic, and carrots for about 10 minutes and then add the ground turkey. Cook the meat until it is no longer pink and add the homemade tomato sauce, and green beans. Then, the mixture will be ready to stuff in the peppers. Finally, you will bake them for 30 minutes and dinner will be done. Easy and peasy!
