clean foodThis is CLEAN and HEALTHY food.  Especially if you buy organic ground turkey (I have used ground chicken, veal and beef as well).  It is a simple recipe to make and requires very few ingredients.  For those of you following gluten free, paleo or anti inflammatory diets this is a recipe to try, I promise it’s a keeper.

2 T coconut oil

1 pound ground turkey

1  onion diced

1 small butternut squash (or half of a large one)

1 bunch of kale torn into pieces

1 pinch of red pepper flakes (to taste)

salt and pepper

Serves 4-6


Preheat oven to 400.

Peel and cut up butternut squash into cubes.  Toss with 1 T coconut oil, salt and pepper and roast until fork tender approx. 30-40 mins. Remove from the oven and set aside.

In a large pan, heat the remaining  tablespoon of coconut oil and brown the turkey meat stirring constantly, when cooked through add the onion, continue cooking for 3-5 minutes.  When the onion is transparent, add the kale and 1-2 Tbs water (or chicken stock) and cover for a few minutes until the kale has wilted.  Add the roasted butternut squash,  the red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.  Combine all of the ingredients gently until all is heated through.
