Ingredients

    2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
    1 clove garlic, minced
    16 ounces 93%-lean ground turkey
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
    2 tablespoon cider vinegar
    1 medium tart green apple, peeled and chopped
    1 cup chopped tomato
    3 tablespoons chopped green olives
    1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    1/4 cup sliced scallion greens

Directions

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook until soft, stirring often, about 2 minutes. Add turkey; cook, stirring and breaking up, until lightly browned, 4 to 6 minutes.


Stir in cumin, oregano, salt, pepper and cloves; cook for 30 seconds. Stir in vinegar, scraping up any browned bits. Stir in apple, tomato, olives and Worcestershire sauce. Reduce heat and gently simmer, stirring often, until any liquid in the pan has reduced to a syrupy glaze, about 8 minutes. Stir in scallion greens and serve.


Makes 4 servings, 1 cup each.

  • Loved it, and so did my husband! We'll definitely be making it again. - 10/12/11

  • I too tried this recipe from Eatingwell.com. Though the serving size is a bit off and so are the calories. Should be about 2 - 1 1/2 cups for servings and 246 calories per serving. When I made mine it was very vinegary. So I would make it without the vinegar especially if you have tart apples. - 2/24/11

When I make it, I use 2 Granny Smith apples, 2 tomatoes (chopped/seeded), 6 Tbsp chopped green olives, 1 tsp Worstershire sauce, and 1/2 cup sliced scallion greens. YUM - 1/17/10
