|EVERY FEW MINUTES|
|GROUND TURKEY AND VEGETABLES|
1 lb. ground turkey
1 1/2 bags (16 oz. each) frozen vegetable mix (broccoli, carrots, cauliflower)
1/2 bell pepper, chopped coarsely
1 cooking spoon (not quite full) of olive oil or vegetable oil
2 chopped basil leaves or sprinkle of dry basil to taste
1 lg. onion, chopped coarsely
1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
1/4 c. water (you may want more)
1 bay leaf (lg. green)
A generous sprinkle of garlic powder and Italian seasoning or seasoning of your choice
Saute onion and turkey in oil and about half the water on low heat until the turkey starts to brown (just a few minutes). Then add rest of ingredients, mixing well to distribute tomato sauce evenly. Cover and simmer on low heat 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Tips: Sometimes I skip the saute and put all ingredients in the pan at once. This can be made minus the meat, as a vegetable course, or you can substitute shrimp or deboned chicken. Can be made ahead and frozen.
Serves 4-6 depending on appetites.
