I learned this recipe from my mother (yes I know.. Thanks captain obvious)
Since I learned it while cooking with her, it’s not an exact recipe, we would always cook it to taste and color, but I will do my best with the measurements.
Also, as I was recently diagnosed with high blood pressure ( I turn 35 this year so I guess it’s time to start falling apart.. Ha JK… Kinda), I am supposed to be on a restricted sodium diet. This recipe will be lower in sodium, but feel free to add more salt.
Start with 1 onion (I prefer white or yellow) and about 3 cloves of garlic
Then push the onions off to one side of the pan and add 1-1.5 lbs of ground turkey (I prefer lean but not extra lean, about 90%-93%). Sprinkle 1/4 of a teaspoon of sea salt on the turkey and brown it (break up any big chunks).
Then stir the onions in with the turkey
Then I add about 1 teaspoon of Cumin, and 1 tablespoon of dried Oregano
Sometimes I add cilantro (people seem to either love it or oddly think it tastes like soap.. So whatever your preference on this one). I think it adds a nice contrast in color .. And I was always taught to cook by color 🙂
