Asian Turkey Stuffed Peppers

These great tasting, low fat stuffed peppers are so tasty and  very easy to put together. These are great for a quick weeknight dinner.

1 large bell pepper
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon rice vinegar, divided
1 tablespoon GF ginger marmalade
1 teaspoon reduced GF sodium soy sauce such as VH brand
1 teaspoon miso paste
1/4 cup GF chicken broth
1/4 cup GF instant rice
1 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 pound extra lean ground turkey
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, pressed
1/4 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes
1/2 tablespoon fresh finely grated ginger

Mix together 1 teaspoon of the rice vinegar, the ginger marmalade and  soy sauce in a small bowl and set aside.
Mix together the remaining rice vinegar and miso paste in another small bowl and set aside.
Bring the chicken broth to a boil and add the rice, cover, remove from heat and set aside.
Bring the olive oil to medium-high heat in a large skillet.
Add the sesame oil, ground turkey, shallot, garlic, red pepper flakes and ginger; cook until chicken is no longer pink and cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes.
Meanwhile bring a large pot of water to a boil, slice the pepper in half, remove ribs and seeds and boil until tender yet firm, about 3 to 4 minutes; remove the peppers from boiling water and set aside.
Add the cooked rice and the rice vinegar/miso mixture to the cooked turkey and heat through.
Stuff the meat and rice mixture into the cooked bell pepper, drizzle with the ginger marmalade mixture.
