Note: HELP. This recipe is in desperate need of a better name!!! If you have any suggestions, let me know:)
Last night, upon a recommendation from a fellow instructor (hat tip: Barbara – thank you!), I discovered this wonderful combination: ground turkey, kale, and roasted butternut squash, topped with some feta cheese.
The genius of this recipe – in addition to its taste and nutrition value – is its versatility.
You could easily swap out the butternut squash for roasted potatoes or brown rice, or you could mix it with scrambled eggs as I did this morning for a late breakfast. You could use any ground meat you like: beef, bison, lamb, etc.
I kept it pretty simple here, but you could sauté minced garlic and/or diced onions with the turkey, or add your favorite herbs and spices. An,d you know I have to say this: it would also be divine with a poached egg on top…
