Ground Turkey Thai Curry

This weekend, I enjoyed a lovely girls night with a couple friends. We decided to make a variation of this recipe and ended up with a delicious thai curry of our own. We adjusted the ingredients and measurements and used turkey instead of beef. Here’s the breakdown (full recipe below):

Saute one red onion in a skillet until it starts to brown:


While the onion cooks, chop 3 cloves garlic, 1 inch ginger, and two heads of broccoli:


Once the onion browns, add the garlic, ginger, 1/2 teaspoon each of turmeric and cumin, and 1 lb ground turkey:

Cook until the turkey starts to brown and then add 1 tablespoon red curry paste, broccoli, thai basil, and one 15oz can of tomato sauce:


Stir and cook down for about 10-15 minutes until the broccoli is soft:

Squeeze in the juice of a half lime and serve with the grain of your choice (we used whole wheat cous cous).
