  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup carrots, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 small sweet potato, peeled and chopped
  • 14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups cooked turkey

  1. Place the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Sauté the onion, carrots, pepper, and sweet potato for about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the diced tomatoes, chicken broth, coconut milk, curry powder, salt, and pepper. Simmer on low heat for 15-20 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are tender and the sauce has reduced a bit.

  3. Add the cooked turkey and let simmer for an additional 2-3 minutes, until turkey is hot. Serve as-is or over rice. Enjoy!
