1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 cup (480g) ground turkey
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup (78g) onions, diced
1 2/3 cup (219g) sweet potato, diced
½ cup homemade tomato sauce
Crushed red pepper to taste (optional)
Salt and pepper
2 big bell peppers cut in half

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat.

  6. Arrange the peppers in a greasy baking dish. The cavity side is facing up.
  7. Fill each bell pepper halve with the ground turkey-sweet potato mix.
  8. Bake uncovered for about 30 minutes, or until the peppers are cooked and soft.
