Introducing...Ground Turkey "Gumbo"!
I used my crock pot along with these main ingredients:
-1 lb lean ground turkey
- 2 bell peppers
- 5(ish) radishes
- 3 large carrots
- 3(ish) celery stalks
- 1 can black beans (or beans of choice)
- 1 carton vegetable broth (could use chicken or beef)
- 2 cups brown rice
- salt and pepper to taste
I chopped up all my veggies and put them in my crock pot (on high) with the 1 lb of ground turkey and 1 can of black beans:
To get the cooking started I added 2 cups of the vegetable broth and the salt and pepper. I let all of this cook for a couple hours because I didn't want to over cook my rice.
So at about the 2 hour mark I added 2 cups of brown rice along with two more cups of vegetable broth:
I let this all cook for another couple hours so that all of the broth could be soaked up by the rice.
And there's the Ground Turkey "Gumbo"!
It's a nice alternative to the chili since it adds a little grains in there and I was glad I added the radishes for a new twist! It's fun to experiment with winter time veggies :)
Super simple and easily modified for whatever you'd like to add!
Make it vegetarian style with more brown rice and beans!
Add tons of your favorite veggies and it's a great way to pack them into your diet!
