easy Recipe, Lighter Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers

The Deen Bros. Lighter Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 small zucchini, grated
2 garlic cloves, minced
3/4 pound ground lean turkey breast
1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice
1/2 cup reduced-fat shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 medium green, red, or yellow bell peppers
1 (24-ounce) jar marinara sauce
Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, zucchini, and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 8 minutes. Transfer the onion mixture to a large bowl; let cool slightly.

Add the turkey, rice, cheese, and salt; mix well to combine. Cut the tops off of the bell peppers; discard seeds and membranes. Spoon the turkey mixture into each pepper. Transfer the peppers, cut-side up, to a 5 1/2-quart slow cooker. Pour the sauce over the peppers and cook, covered, until the peppers are fork-tender, 3 – 4 hours on High or 4 – 6 hours on Low.

Test Kitchen Tip
1/2 cup uncooked brown rice cooked in 1 1/3 cups of water will yield 1 1/2 cups cooked rice.
