Prep and cook time: 30 minutes Serves 4
Basic turkey mixture:
1 pound ground turkey breast (free-range/organic)
2 medium yellow onion, chopped
2 tablespoons (minimum) coconut oil or ghee (clarified butter)
1 tablespoon stone ground mustard or mustard powder
½ teaspoon sea vegetable flakes (kelp, dulse, nori)
1 teaspoon dried or fresh oregano
ground black pepper and sea salt to taste
For basic turkey mixture, heat oil or ghee in a large pan over medium heat. Place turkey and spices in pan and combine well. Cook for 4-5 minutes; stir frequently. Add the onion to the pan and stir into the meat mixture. Add more oil if too dry. Cover and cook until turkey turns white, approximately 10 minutes. Set aside.
2 tablespoons coconut oil or ghee
1 clove garlic, sliced
1 tomato, chopped
1 teaspoon organic cumin, or more to taste
1 teaspoon organic coriander, or more to taste
1 tablespoon chopped jalapeño pepper
extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
For a Mexican flair, heat oil or ghee in a separate large pan and sauté garlic and tomato for 3-4 minutes. Add basic turkey mixture to the pan. Season with spices to taste and chopped pepper. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Serve with a whole grain tortilla or lettuce leaf along with avocado and salsa.
