• 1 cup (195g) brown rice, cooked
• 4 bell peppers
• 1 lb. (450g) ground turkey breast

What do you need to do :
Cook rice according to instructions on the packaging. Cut bell peppers in half, remove seeds and set aside.
In a large dry non-stick pan, cook the ground turkey with the onion and garlic for about 8 mins. Remove from the heat and add the rice, 1 cup tomato sauce mixed herbs, cinnamon, and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Mix well.
Preheat oven to 375F (190C). Place the bell peppers in a baking dish (if they are leaning too much, trim the bottom slightly to create a flat surface).
Stuff each bell pepper with the turkey and rice mixture. Top each pepper with 1 tbsp. tomato sauce and a sprinkle of cheese.
Pour 1 cup of water into the bottom baking dish, this will help steam the peppers. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Remove bake uncovered for about 5 more minutes, until cheese melts.
