Ingredients
  

For the Chili

Garnish (Optional)

Instructions
 

  • Heat the 1 Tbsp Olive Oil in a large fry pan over a medium high setting.
    1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • Add the 1 red onion and the minced 3 cloves garlic to the pan. Sauté until the onion becomes translucent and starting to caramelize. We are looking for golden brown not burnt;
    3 cloves garlic, 1 red onion
  • Add the 200 g Tomato Puree and sauté with the onion and garlic for 2 or 3 minutes. It will become glossy and a deeper color.
    200 g Tomato Puree
  • Add the 700 g ground turkey, 2 tablespoons Chili Powder and 3 teaspoons ground cumin to the onion, garlic and tomato. Fry until the Turkey has browned. We are aiming for it to be just cooked through and no longer pink. The ground turkey will separate and appear as large crumbs. Don't overcook.
    700 g ground turkey, 2 tablespoons Chili Powder, 3 teaspoons ground cumin
  • Add the turkey mixture, 450 g sweet potatoes, ¼ cup quinoa, canned 400 g Tomatoes, 400 g black beans, ½ cup Vegetable Stock, ¼ teaspoon sea salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper to the slow cooker. Set your cooker to high and leave for 4 hours, or low setting for 6 to 8 hours.
    450 g sweet potatoes, ¼ cup quinoa, 400 g Tomatoes, 400 g black beans, ½ cup Vegetable Stock, ¼ teaspoon sea salt, ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • Top each serving with a dash of 1 Tbsp sour cream and 2 tablespoons cilantro. Serve with a green salad.
    1 Tbsp sour cream, 2 tablespoons cilantro

Notes

You can, of course, use a normal heavy bottomed saucepan if you don’t have a slow cooker. Simmer with a lid on, at the lowest heat point that keeps the Chili simmering. Don’t leave unattended as it may catch on the bottom. Stir every 10 – 15 minutes. Simmer for 35 to 40 minutes, turn off the heat and allow to sit for another 30 minutes. Reheat before serving.
