Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup uncooked white rice

  • 4

    medium bell peppers, any color

  • 10

    ounces extra lean ground beef (7% or less fat)

  • 1

    small onion, chopped

  • 2

    garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 1/2

    cups 100% vegetable juice (e.g. V8)

  • 3

    tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

  • 1

    teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2

    teaspoon italian seasoning

  • 1/2

    teaspoon Mrs. Dash seasoning mix

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Directions

1 Cook the rice according to package directions, omitting the butter or vegetable oil. Cool 10 minutes. 2 Meanwhile, with a sharp knife, slice off the top of each bell pepper and remove the seeds. Set aside. Remove and discard stems and chop remaining pepper tops. 3 Combine the cooked rice, the ground beef, onion, chopped pepper, garlic, 1/4 cup of the vegetable juice, the Parmesan, and spices in a medium bowl. Spoon the rice mixture, dividing it evenly, into the bell peppers. 4 Place the bell peppers in a deep 3-quart sauce pan; pour the remaining 1 1/4 cups vegetable juice around the bell peppers. 5 Set pan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to simmer and cover. 6 Simmer until peppers are tender and beef is cooked through, 20 - 30 minutes. 7 Place each bell pepper in a serving bowl and serve with the sauce.
