Stuffed Peppers with Turkey & Cheese

Stuffed Peppers with Turkey & Cheese 

Here’s an old classic brought bang up to date – here’s my stuffed peppers with turkey & cheese’ replaces the old stuffed peppers!

I’ve been thinking about developing a nice recipe with turkey mince for a while. It’s so good for you and so under utilised, it’s low cost and low fat.

So I’m trying for simple tasty recipes with a HEALTHY EPLS edge and I think I’ve managed it! Yipyar!

Turkey Pepper

Low Carb Stuffed Peppers 

This recipe is also very low carb which is also a bonus. You should have a try, I think you’d be surprised at just how tasty it is.

I’ve added a touch of chilli as I like a bit of spice BUT you really don’t need to.

Make sure you get a really strong Cheese that way you can use less and still get the flavour.

I choose my fave cheese of the moment Comte! It seeps through and makes these Turkey Pepper Boats so juicy and yummy.

I had a plate full served with a little stir fried Courgetti – I’m trying to be uber good.

 

Slimming 

If you’re following SW – it’s only the cheese you need to count – maybe yes your Healthy A? 

 

Light Summer Stuffed Peppers

It’s almost summer 🙂 BUT I will not eat boring flavourless low fat bought food.

I would rather take healthy ingredients and try and turn them into something really tasty and satisfying.

I think using baby mixed coloured peppers also makes them look super cute!

I hope you’ll give these Stuffed Peppers with Turkey & Cheese  a try and if you do please leave me a comment below.

I love to receive your comments #HEALTHYEPLS
