Stuff Healthy Peppers for Survivors’ Day

stuffed-peppers copy sm1With National Cancer Survivors’ Day on June 2, our bright Health-e-Recipe for Peppers Stuffed with Turkey and Wild Rice  is perfect to make for a special survivor in your life. You’ll have a tasty, healthy entrée plus leftovers for later meals.

Wild rice is a whole grain that goes well with low-fat ground turkey. Look for a package of turkey that says it contains 97% meat and 3% fat. Then sautée it with onions and garlic, both of which are rich in allium phytochemicals that may protect against cancer.

Our recipe adds mushrooms, sources of protective compounds called ergosterols. With spinach (rich in lutein, good for your eyesight), tomatoes (sources of vitamin C and cancer-fighting lycopene) and carrots (brimming with the antioxidant beta carotene), the stuffing is a perfect taste complement to the sweet bell peppers (good sources of vitamin C, another antioxidant).

Pop them in the oven and enjoy! For more tasty cancer-fighting entrees, visit the AICR Test Kitchen. Subscribe to our Health-e-Recipes.

    Actually Wild rice is a grain. Its a species of 4 different grasses, which the wild rice grain is harvested from.
    Wild rice grains have a chewy outer sheath with a tender inner grain that taste more like vegetably.
    The plants grow in shallow water in small lakes and slow-flowing streams; often, only the flowering head of wild rice rises above the water.

    Made your stuffed peppers and replaced wild rice with cooked quinoa. Served with extra hot sauce on the side – everyone loved it!
