Happy new year, friends!!
Since it's the start of a new year (and a new decade!), I'm about to make your life a whole lot easier in 2020 by sharing one of my all-time favourite simple, high protein & nutrient-rich meals you can whip up in a pinch. It's a one-pot recipe, meaning you just throw everything into the same pot and let it cook together for 30+ minutes (it can be ready in 30 minutes, but the longer it simmers, the more flavourful it gets!).
It's soothing, healthy and perfect for starting this new year off with a bang. Let me know if you try this one out! Recipe and details below!
500g lean ground turkey
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp olive oil
3 carrots, peeled and diced
3 celery stalks, diced
1 can kidney or mixed beans
1 can tomato sauce
1 tbsp chilli powder
1/2 tbsp paprika
1/2 tbsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste
*optional: green onions & greek yogurt to garnish
In a large pot heated to medium-high, add in olive oil, garlic and onions and sauté until golden brown and fragrant.
Next, add ground turkey and allow to fully cook and become browned on the sides. Break apart into small chunks as you cook.
Once meat is cooked, add in carrots and celery and stir to incorporate. Stir continuously and allow to soften. Cover pot with lid and allow to 'sweat' for about 5 minutes.
Add in tomato sauce, then bring chilli to a simmer.
Once simmering, add in spices (paprika, chili, cumin, salt & pepper), then stir until fully combined.
Mix in beans, stir again, then allow simmer for another 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Once veggies and beans are completely soft, serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt & green onions. Enjoy!
