Quick & Healthy Recipe: Turkey and Kale Stir Fry

I love this recipe because it’s so simple and can be modified in many ways. This was inspired by a turkey mince and green peas meal I put together a few weeks ago, on a Thursday night.If you read my blog posts, you’ll know I find it quite hard to eat a raw salad (no matter how good it is for me). I much prefer making green smoothies or stir fries using highly nutritious green leafy vegetables like spinach, collard/spring greens and kale.

I was at the supermarket last week and saw packs of kale calling my name so I bought one and decided to follow the same steps as the turkey mince/peas stir fry…

INGREDIENTS

- 400g turkey mince

- 200g kale
- 2-3 tbsp tomato puree
- 1/2 onion diced

- 1tbsp coconut oil
- Seasonings

- Salt to taste
1. Heat the coconut oil in a pan. Fry the onions until they start to brown.
2. Add the mince and start to cook in pan. Stirring in pan often to ensure it cooks evenly.
3. Season as desired.
3. After it’s been cooking for 5 minutes, add the tomato puree. Leave to simmer for a coupl eof minutes.
4. Add the (washed) kale, cover, turn down heat to medium and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.

Enjoy :)
