Out of time for low carb cooking? Out of gumption too? Trying to resist the urge to go dine out and eat nan? This super easy Indian inspired recipe will be done in ten minutes! I submitted this recipe, but it seems nobody but I can see it until it's approved. So here it is again. It's what I had for dinner.

1 lb ground turkey
1 chopped vidalia onion
2 Tbs coconut oil or unrefined peanut oil
Handful of baby greens or spinach (optional)
2 Tbs prepared tandoori paste (I like Pataks)

  1. Cook the onion in the oil on medium heat until the edges begin to caramelize.
  2. Add the turkey. Break up pieces and stir until no pink is detected.
  3. Add the greens and tandoori sauce. Stir until leaves wilt and everything is evenly heated.
  4. I suppose you could spread out the meal with rice and serve four, but my husband and I just split it.

I add a little yogurt to the prepared tandoori paste - it gives in a little bit of "something more" :) I have never tried it with ground meat before - I am looking forward to trying this.

About Me
I am a 51 year old game designer, grandmother and entrepreneur. I have been cooking for family all my life. These days I cook at least twice a day for my husband and I who are both on low carbohydrate diets for life.
My favorite things to cook
Sadly I love to bake... oh well. So instead I specialize in yummy stove top cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was a traditional English cook. 'nuf said. I use Mexican, Asian, Indian and American spice combinations in my own recipes.
My cooking triumphs
I have cooked dinner for 30 and have it come off with aplomb.
My cooking tragedies
I once made a birthday cake for someone when I could not smell things properly. I didn't realize my vegetable oil had gone rancid. Yuck.
