Greek Stuffed Peppers Notes

I usually always prepare Mexican style stuffed peppers, but when I purchased Sunny Greek Seasoning this was one of the recipes I came up with to try and showcase it. Now, this version has replaced my Mexican version 9 times out of 10!

Ingredients
  • 4 large bell peppers (red, yellow or both)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 pound ground turkey
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 medium zucchini, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth, divided
  • 2 ounces orzo
  • 2 teaspoons Sunny Greek Islands Salt-Free Greek Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon Tomato Powder
  • 4 ounces Greek feta cheese
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Serves / Yields

Preparation Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. To prep the peppers, take a small thin slice off the bottom so each pepper will stand upright. Slice off the top of each pepper, discard the stem and clean out the pithy white membrane inside. Place each pepper upright in an 8x10 glass baking dish.
  3. In a non stick skillet over medium high heat. Combine the oil and ground turkey. Saute until lightly browned.
  4. Add the onion, zucchini, Sunny Greek seasoning, tomato powder, a large pinch of Kosher salt and a few grinds of pepper. Saute until the onion and zucchini become slightly translucent.
  5. Add the orzo along with 1 cup of the chicken broth. Reduce the heat to maintain a simmer and cover until the liquid is absorbed (the orzo will continue to cook in the oven so don't worry if it is still hard at this point)
  6. Once the liquid is absorbed, turn off the heat and crumble in the feta.
  7. Stuff each pepper to overflowing with the mixture, pour the remaining 1/2 cup of broth into the bottom of the baking dish and cover tightly with aluminum foil.
  8. Bake on the middle rack for 45mins.
  9. Let stand to 5 minutes before serving
Helpful Hints

For a variation try substituting ground lamb (delicious!), beef or chicken for the ground turkey.
