Stuffed Peppers


12 oz lean ground beef
1/2 tsp each fennel seed, dried sage, dried oregano and garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground pepper and sea salt
1 medium sweet onion, diced
1 large tomato, diced
1 1/2 cups cooked wild rice
1 TBSP pure maple syrup
4 red bell peppers (or any color you like)

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.  In a large skillet on medium heat combine beef with spiced, salt and pepper.  Cook until meat is just brown.  Transfer to a plate covered with a paper towel.

Using the same skillet add the diced onion and cook until translucent.  Add the diced tomato, cooked rice, maple syrup and beef back to the skillet.  Heat until the entire mixture is warm.

Remove the top of each pepper.  Place the peppers, top side up on a baking sheet coated with olive oil spray.  Spoon the mixture into each pepper and bake for 25 minutes, or until the peppers are tender.
