🦃 Peppers stuffed with ground turkey and farro. 12/11/19

Inspired by a blog post by Cooking Without Limits for stuffed peppers, I decided to try making some myself. John was busy installing a new modem and router so I had to come up with a recipe on my own. One thing I do know about ground turkey is that it tends to taste sweet and lacks texture.

In order to counteract the sweet and mushy problems, I chopped up some mushrooms and seared them hard. I also sautéed onions and garlic. I seasoned with every new ingredient.

I also seared the ground turkey and mixed it together with the vegetables. Next step was to add oregano and chile flakes and deglaze the pan with white wine. I added a can of petite diced tomatoes and some farro that I had cooked earlier. I took a taste. Still too sweet! At this point I used my ultimate fixer, fish sauce. With a little tomato sauce it tasted great.

I stuffed 4 half peppers that I had microwaved to soften and added some additional tomato sauce, covered the dish, and baked it for 30 minutes at 350F. We really enjoyed our turkey stuffed peppers tonight!
