Lazy Mom’s Stuffed Peppers – It’s All About the Soy Sauce

Lazy Mom's Stuffed Peppers

Tonight, I am taking a break from the Pinterest inspired creations and sharing one of my favorite recipes.
Right off the bat, I have got to tell you that I love soy sauce. I am half Vietnamese so I think it must run through my veins. There are very few things that I do not add soy sauce to. It is good on everything, rice,eggs,meat,vegetables. You name it. Did you know that in Japan there is even soy sauce flavored Kit Kat bars. It’s true-fun fact. I am also kind of what you might call a soy sauce snob at least that is what my husband calls me, when I scoff at Kikkoman and La Choy. The soy sauce in this recipe is what I think makes it so special. So, enough about my crazed soy sauce rant and on to the recipe.

For my own recipes, I usually measure by eye not my measuring spoons, so this was a little bit of a project for me to put in recipe form.


1 cup of brown rice (washed & drained)

1 red bell pepper

1 green pepper

1 – 1 1/2 lbs of ground turkey

2 14.5 oz cans of stewed tomato (well drained)

1 cup low fat shredded sharp cheddar

1 tbsp of minced garlic

1 tbsp of olive oil

3 tbsp of soy sauce (use a good soy sauce like Green Mountain or Maggi, you can pick these up at an asian market or sometimes you can find Maggi at Walmart.) It is a completely different taste than Kikkoman or La Choy

1 tsp of sugar

salt and pepper to taste


Prepare rice according to package directions. The rice will take the longest to prepare, so do this first.

Brown the ground turkey. Add salt and pepper & 1 tbsp of the soy sauce.

While the turkey is browning, wash and chop peppers.

In an extra large skillet, add oil and turn to medium heat. Add garlic. Cook for a minute or 2 to release flavor, do not let brown. Add peppers, 2 tbsp of soy sauce and sugar & cook until tender. Take off the heat and set aside.

Once turkey is fully cooked add stewed tomatoes to the turkey mixture.

Turn heat to low,stir and drain tomato juice occasionally.

Once rice is finished, add rice, cheese and ground turkey to the pepper mixture. Stir until all ingredients are evenly distributed and cheese is melted.

Serve and enjoy…


Like I said before, this is one of my favorite recipes. It is low fat, healthy and so delicious. I hope you all enjoy.
