I just tried this the other night for dinner and it was good! It is easy, macro friendly, and even my kids liked it. It was perfect for a cold night with a bunch of sick family members! I am always looking for quick, easy ways to make a dinner in the crock pot that I can just quickly prep and forget about. I made this recipe even more simple by using a bag of frozen mixed vegetables, but if you have fresh veggies available that you would rather use, go for it! Ok, enough rambling, the recipe is below!
- 1lb of ground turkey (I use 98/2)
- 1 bag of frozen veggies (I used corn, green beans, peas, carrots)
- 2 stalks of celery diced
- 2 medium potatoes diced
- 1 small onion diced
- 1 14oz can of diced tomatoes
- 1 6oz can of tomato paste
- 6 cups of chicken broth
- 3 cloves of minced garlic
- 1/4 tsp thyme
- 1/4 tsp dried oregano
- 1 bay leaf
- Salt and pepper to taste
Step 1: Brown the turkey and onions in a skillet and drain
Step 2: Add diced tomatoes, broth, and tomato paste to crockpot and stir. Then add turkey, garlic, thyme, oregano, and potatoes. Stir again. Add the bay leaf.
Step 3: Cook on low for 4-5 hours (keep an eye on the potatoes towards the end) At 30 minutes out unthaw the frozen veggies and add them to the crockpot.
Serves 6. Macros are approximately 23P 18C .7F. These will change depending on your particular ingredients.
