Recipe adapted from Primaverakitchen.com
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 lb extra-lean ground beef or ground turkey
- ½ cup onions
- ½ cup red bell pepper
- 2 ½ cup sweet potato, diced (cubed small)
- ¼ cup bone broth or water
- 1 medium zucchini, quartered
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 1/3 cup tomato sauce
- ½ teaspoon of oregano
- 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Heat a frying pan to medium-high and add ground beef. Use a wood spoon to break up the beef while it cooks. Stir occasionally and cook for about 7 minutes. Once browned place in a colander and run water over beef until grease is drained then set aside.
Heat a little olive oil to pan and add onions, red bell pepper and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the onions are soft.
Add sweet potato and bone broth and cook for 5-6 minutes. Put a lid on the pan. The steam will help to cook faster the sweet potato. Stir occasionally.
Add the zucchini and cook for 3 minutes. Add garlic, salt, pepper and oregano.
Add the ground beef to skillet again and mix everything together.
Add the tomato sauce. Stir and serve. Goes well with cauliflower rice.
