Turkey is a lean meat that you may find in different supermarkets. This recipe takes 20 mins max to do. It goes well with brown or white rice. The brand I chose is 99% lean 1% fat. It will keep you satisfied and with good energy levels throughout the day and the best is that is very low fat.


  • 1.25 lb Jennie O Ground Turkey Breast, extra lean
  • 2 medium size carrots peeled and chopped
  • 1 medium red onion chopped
  • 2 small green chilies finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 cup of cherry tomatoes cut in halves
  • 100 gr baby kale leaves (or baby kale mix)
  • Organic vegetable stock
  • Salt and pepper


  • Place the turkey in a hot pan over medium- high heat. Add a spoon of water so the meat doesn’t stick to the pan. Cook for 7 minutes or until the meat changes into a white color.
  • Add the garlic, onions, and chilies to the pan and keep stirring for 3 minutes. Add the carrots and vegetable stock and cook for 5 mins and lastly add the cherry tomatoes and cook for another 4 minutes. Season to taste.
  • Place the baby kale leaves in a bowl and then pour the turkey mix over it. It goes well with rice on the side. Enjoy it!
