Ingredients:

 

1 cup long-grain brown rice

1/3 cup quinoa

2 large green bell peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1 medium onion, chopped

1/2 pound turkey sausage, finely chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

1 14 ounce can diced tomatoes

1 small bunch of kale, leaved shopped

salt

Chopped fresh parsley, for topping

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°.  Cut bell peppers in half and drizzle with olive oil.  Bake for 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil, add the brown rice and boil 10 minutes.  Stir in quinoa and cook until both grains are tender, about 15 more minutes.  Drain well and set aside.
  3. In a wide saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat, and then add onion.  Stir until golden, about 5 minutes.  Add the sausage, garlic, thyme, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt and cook.  Stir until the sausage is brown and crisp, about 3 more minutes.
  4. Add the tomatoes and 1 cup water to the pan.  Pile the kale on top, and cover and cook until kale wilts, about 2 minutes.  Stir the kale into the sauce and bring to a simmer.
  5. Divide the mixture into the bell peppers and season with salt.  Put back in over for 5 minutes for all ingredients to cook together.  Top with parsley to serve.
