Serves 4


  • 4 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 3 cups fresh spinach
  • 4 ounces white mushrooms, chopped (okay to omit if you need to)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (16 ounce) can crushed tomatoes and juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced

Preheat oven to 425.

In a large skillet, heat the grape seed oil over medium heat. Brown the ground turkey until cooked through and no longer pink. Add the spinach and stir until wilted.

Add the next 6 ingredients (mushrooms through oregano) and stir. Add sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Simmer for 20 minutes.

Cut the tops off of the peppers and remove the seeds and stems. Slice each pepper in half lengthwise.
