Today I wanted to create a simple nutrient packed recipe that I can take with me when I’m “on the go”, but I didn’t want to have more than one container. I guess this could be my version of a Shepard’s Pie. Now, I know some people don’t like to combine/mix foods. If you are one of these fine individuals feel free to keep them in separate dishes. Also, if your feeding this to the kiddos go ahead and let them top it off with some organic ketchup if they want.
The below ingredients makes 6 servings. mmmmm 🙂
2lbs Lean ground turkey
2lbs Red potatoes (chopped in quarters)
1 Bunch dinosaur kale (de-veined and chopped)
3-4 Sprigs rosemary (chopped)
1 Medium yellow onion (chopped)
4 Cloves garlic (chopped)
1Tbsp purity farms ghee butter
1/3-1/2 cup unsweetend almond milk
1tsp cumin (you can use more or less if you like)
1tsp chili powder (you can use more or less if you like)
1tsp garlic powder (you can use more or less if you like)
sea salt to taste
Chop potatoes and put in a large pot with water. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 12 minutes. While the potatoes are cooking now’s the time to brown the meat. Put onions, garlic & ghee butter in a large frying pan and sauté on medium heat for about 3 minutes. Add the turkey and spices, mix it up and stir/mix occasionally until turkey is cooked. Then set aside.
While the turkey is browning, or after if you can’t multitask :-), de-vein and chop the kale. Put it in a large mixing bowl. Do the same with the rosemary.
Once potatoes are boiled, drain them then immediately add to the bowl with the kale & rosemary. Add milk and stir very well with a wooden spoon. ** The heat from the potatoes will “steam” the kale and rosemary when you mix it, but not too much that you lose the beneficial nutrients.
Once everything is cooked/browned/mixed, take 6 medium sized tupperware bowls and add 3/4-1 cup mashed potatoes & 3/4-1 cup turkey. I personally like to then mix it all together, then set in the fridge to cool and let all ingredients fuze together.
**NOTE** for extra nutritional benefits and to add a bit of tang, I like to add 1/2 cup sauerkraut to each individual serving just before eating.
