Directions

1
In a medium saucepan, heat canola oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté for 1-2 minutes.
2
When onions are translucent, add ground turkey to the pan and brown.
3
Once the meat has browned, add spinach and garlic.
4
Cook down the spinach, approximately 1-2 minutes.
5
Add rice, broth, tomato sauce and dill. Season with salt and pepper.
6
Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low. Cover and let cook for 20 minutes.
7
In the meantime, prepare peppers by removing and discarding the tops and seeds. Poke small holes (about 2-3) at the bottom of each pepper to let juices run out.
8
To speed the cooking process, microwave the prepped peppers in a covered dish for 5 minutes.
9
Preheat oven for 350.
10
To finish meat and rice mixture, add lemon zest and juice and let it simmer for a minute.
11
Place the peppers in a baking dish, spoon in meat and rice mixture. Crumble on feta cheese and breadcrumbs.
12
Bake for 20 minutes or until peppers are tender.
13
Serve with lemon wedges.
