Recipe: Curry and Goat Cheese Stuffed Peppers

Every now and then I get a random craving for something. This time around, it was curry. I really love curry. And, with a freshly stocked fridge — and a bin on the way from Doorganics — I had myriad options. After all, curry is so good on anything and everything. The verdict? Stuffed bell peppers. With ground turkey. And, my two other super-favorites: goat cheese and balsamic vinegar.

What follows is a completely made-up recipe, so you may need to adjust to your tastes. And, remember, I (usually) cook for one — if you’re cooking for more than that, multiply accordingly.

Ingredients

  • Ingredients4 ounces extra lean ground turkey
  • 1 medium bell pepper
  • 1/6 c. old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 c. sweet onion, diced
  • 1/2 Roma tomato, diced
  • 1/4 c. crumbled goat cheese
  • 3 tbsp. egg whites
  • Curry powder (as much as you’d like, based on your deep, deep love of curry)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/4 c. balsamic vinegar (an afterthought, so it didn’t make the picture)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Clean out your green pepper — careful you don’t cut through it
  • cored green pepperCombine all other ingredients in a bowlRaw ingredients
  • Mix them all up using your hands — honestly, this is the worst part of cooking. I hate touching raw meat. So. Very. Much.
  • Stuff it into the pepper and place in a glass dish and put in oven

  • Call Mom to see how long she thinks you should bake the pepper. Agree on half an hour (ish). Set the timer.
  • Find out that half an hour is not enough. Put it back in the oven for about 15 more minutes.
  • While it’s finishing cooking, put balsamic vinegar in a saucepan and heat until it boils. Whisk it as it boils until it becomes somewhat thick. balsamic vinegar
  • Decorate your plate with balsamic reduction.
  • Take pepper out of oven and place on balsamic-ed plate. Drizzle pepper with remaining balsamic reduction.
