Peppers Stuffed With Swiss, Mushrooms, Ground Turkey and Rice

Welcome back to my lazy kitchen!

Tonight’s edition is a variation of a recipe from Dear Crissy found a few nights ago via the culinary treasure trove that is Pinterest. I had leftover ground turkey in the fridge, five peppers, and rice in the cupboard so stuffed peppers seemed like a great idea. To summarize: prep the veggies while the oven preheats to 375 and the rice simmers, then add ground turkey and cheese to the rice. About 30-35 minutes later you’ve got a great meal. Thanks Dear Crissy!

Here’s what I improvised with:

Crissy’s                                           On Hand

Wild Rice                                        Jasmine Rice

Onion                                             White Mushrooms

Crushed Tomatoes                       Used Broth Instead of Water to Cook Rice

Italian Seasoning                         Rosemary, Sage, Thyme

Cheddar Cheese                            Swiss Cheese

You aren’t always going to have the ingredients to follow a recipe exactly as it’s written, but most of the time you can find worthy substitutions without making an extra trip to the store.
