My Favorite Recipe: SkinnyGirls Stuffed Peppers

Bethenny Frankel has an AMAZING recipe for stuffed peppers. It's part of her Skinny Girl line, so it is low in fat, and high in protein because of an amazing grain called Quinoa! You can get Quinoa at your regular grocery store in the natural foods aisle (at least at Kroger you can) or at any natural food grocery store.
This recipe is pretty simple, the only thing that stinks is it dirties up 3 cookware items, but it's well worth it, AND I make the husband do the dishes at the end, so it works out! :)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Cook for 30 minutes
Prep Time 30 minutes
  • 6 peppers (cut off top and bottom and use them)
  • 1 pound turkey meat
  • 1 cup quinoa (cooked)
  • ½ large onion
  • 2 cups jarred tomato sauce
  • 1.5 tsp garlic salt
  • 2 tsp tabasco
  • 2.5 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoon toasted pine nuts
  • Parsley for garnish

  1. Cook quinoa per directions. Add one cup grain to 2 cups water. Boil, then simmer until water is gone
  2. Crumble turkey meat with wooden spoon over medium heat.
  3. While turkey meat is cooking, chop the tops and bottoms of peppers into pieces and combine with chopped onion, garlic salt and tomato sauce. Saute over medium heat and add remaining ingredients except the feta and pine nuts
  4. Combine the above with cooked turkey, quinoa, pine nuts and feta cheese (save a small amount of feta to sprinkle on top later on)
  5. Remove the inside of the peppers. Portion the mixture into each of the peppers and place them on a baking sheet. Top with feta cheese. Bake for 30 minutes.

I made stuffed peppers last night, but from SkinnyTaste! At first I thought that's what you were posting, that would have been funny. My husband has Celiac so we're gluten-free at home so we have a ton of quinoa all of the time, I should try these! The feta cheese sounds like the perfect touch, too!
