Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cubed
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups chopped fresh kale
  • Dash crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and sliced
  • Minced fresh mint, optional

Directions

  • In a large skillet, cook turkey, onion, shallot and garlic over medium heat until turkey is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, 8-10 minutes, breaking up turkey into crumbles; drain. Add tomato paste; cook and stir 1 minute longer.
  • Add sweet potato, broth, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, until sweet potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add kale and red pepper flakes; cook and stir until kale is wilted, about 2 minutes. Serve with avocado and if desired, mint.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally; add broth or water if necessary. Serve with avocado and, if desired, mint.
