First off- thank you all for your awesome feedback on yesterdays post. I'm glad I'm not the only who can't use a round brush :)
Today was a longggg one! I had a 5 hour meeting that started at 11:30 and ran wayyy through lunch. I didn't realize it was going to be so long and didn't eat much of anything before hand! I was a starvin marvin by the time it was over and hogged down a flat out wrap with peanut butter before running to teach Body Step. The lack of food left my brain fogged up and I didn't teach very well. Sigh- you win some, you lose some ;)
Given this, I was soooo excited for dinner. When I saw Allison's recipe for Turkey Quinoa Stew, I knew I had to make it! I made a few changes and was just thrilled with the result. It was really thick and yummy. AWESOME recipe Allison!!
1/2 package lean ground turkey (approx 0.5 lbs, or use fake meat crumbles or leave it out and add more beans!)
1/2 onion chopped
1 packet taco seasoning (or any fun spices you have on hand)
1 can pinto beans
1 can kidney beans
frozen corn and peas
1 15-oz can chicken or veggie broth
1 15-oz can tomato sauce
1 tablespoon hot sauce
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (or whatever spices you want!)
1 cup quinoa or quinoa mix
In a large pot, add olive oil, onion, and turkey. Cook until turkey is no longer pink. Add beans, veggies, and taco seasoning. Make sure you coat all the vegetables really well. Once all the meat and veggies are coated, add remaining ingredients. Bring the whole pot to a boil, then cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
I used this mix:
Hands down: broccoli. Yum! Actually I like all veggies except mushrooms :P
Sorry your day was so long! Hopefully you have a nice relaxing evening!
what a meeting! bummer about class, but sounds like you refueled well with this awesome stew :)
i think i like cabbage. and maybe broccoli. and shitake mushrooms (god i don't know.. i like all)
awww sorry your day was nuts :( but looks like you made up for it w/ that dinner! hope your wednesday is MUCH better!
man, that looks SO GOOD! I want ittt
I love all veggies, but I've found myself really enjoying the squashes lately!
That recipe looks so good! I might have to try that sometime (and it's another thing I can do with quinoa ;) ... thanks for sharing : )
And I'm definitely going to have to go with brussels.
that looks amazing- you are my inspiration to eat more delicious and nutritious beans in my meals :D! My fave veggies are always carrots, brocc and now sweet potatoes!
broccoli!!!!!!! but i do like my carrots!
and that looks like a really good dinner...yum yum.
THAT LOOKS AMAZING!! I want to make some now!!!
Um... vegetables? I love yams!
So glad you liked it! I have to give you lots of credit -you say you had a crazy day - AND even managed to make dinner - I can never do that! :)
Great dinner! I love all veggies! No favorite here!
whoa! that is a loaded question gorgeous! ( that is my new nickname for you because you are!)
wow, lets see- I literally love nearly all vegetables except corn and carrots.
Asparagus, Spinach, Artichokes, ooo Cabbage oh and Brussel Sprouts, those together with goddess dressing is insane! hmmm.. in the beta carotene section : sweet potatoes and pumpkin...
Cruciferous: kale and broccoli...
oh gosh. okay im done for now.
i love vegetables.
Ohoho what a great looking recipe! Must try that soon... I could never name just one favorite veggie though. Actually, yes I can - eggplant! Duh - I even posted an eggplant recipe I made TONIGHT! I must be tired.
i go through phases with my fave veggie. lately squash has been the front runner...but thats a seasonal one. summer time i could have corn on the cobb every SINGLE day!
that stew looks awesome btw. seriously, im totally full, but i still could go for a bowl or 2, or 8.
That stew looks so delicious. I must try it.
Oi that is such a HARD question! Can I give you favorite veggie(s)in color categories?
Green: Romaine lettuce, broccoli, peas, spinach, cucumbers
Orange: pumpkin, sweet potatoes, squash
Purple: eggplant and beets!
That looks like some good winter comfort food for sure - healthy too. Great recipe!
My favorite veggie - so difficult to choose just one. From the green family, a shout out to my beloved broccoli...You stink, but I love you so. To get my Vitamin A fix, I have to go with Mr. Sweet Potato Head. I like 'em baked in the oven - all ooey gooey and straight up plain. No butter or brown sugar for me, thanks!
Oh my! A favorite veggie?! That's almost impossible! However, my current obsession is asparagus.
Turkey quinoa stew sounds really, really good. Long meetings, not so much. My friend Raul swears by that quinoa mix.
omg. i seriously need that meal. now!
i LOVE all veggies, but I think my favorite is broccoli. or maybe mushrooms. they both seem to get a bad reputation but i LIVE for them. mm mm mm!
oh that looks incredible! i love quinoa!
my favorite veggie is zucchini- sooo delicious :D
have a great day <3
That stew looks delicious!
My favorite veggie is grilled asparagus :-)
Love your blog!
Okay, just copied, pasted and printed off this recipe. :-) I've never tried quinoa and have wanted to for a long time...I think this is a perfect excuse to try it!
Hmmmm...I LOVE veggies, just am bad about eating them hahaha. My favorite would have to be asparagus (always have to look up the spelling) - I always get it when they have it on a menu at a restaurant!
That looks really delicious! I like how Israeli couscous s so big and bold. :)
If we ever get the chance, I'm giving you a round brush lesson!
that looks awesome! love the stew. i'd have to say my fav veggie is mushrooms and eggplant :)
Ugh don't you hate long meetings :( I think that the world should stop at noon so everyone can eat!
My fav veggie: that's so hard because I love 'em all (BUT CELERY YUCK!) mushrooms, carrots, and tomatoes seem to be the hits lately!
That dinner looks amazing!
oooo I need to try that!!!!!
WOWOW!!! Looks like a great meal for these long wintry days... and healthy too, what a bonus!
zucchini is my all-time fav. But edamame is close up there!
Yum! I like that grain medley from TJs. My favorite veggie...lately it's been pumpkin. I put it in everything!
i actually bought that quinoa mix along time ago, but i haven't thought of a good way to use it yet!! maybe i will try your stew :)
That looks really good! I'll have to try it.
Green beans or spinach with cheese. :)
Glad you got some hearty food in ya:)
I have too many favorite veggies!! I really like zucchini, mushrooms, red peppers, asparagus....I could go on but I know you only asked for one. Sorry!
This could not have come at a better time! I pulled some ground chicken out of the freezer this morning to make pasta sauce but realized once at work that I used the last box of pasta on the weekend. I've been racking my brian all day trying to figure out how to use the meat. Now I have the perfect recipe! THANKS!!!
Those harvest grains sounds really great -- I love your product reviews! :)
Hmmm favorite vegetable or vegetable I consume with alarming regularity? Probably broccoli if it's the later, but I adore green beans and carrots and artichoke hearts and spinach and all those other fun things too!
That stew looks amazing. I can't wait to try it. It is a tie between arugula and butternut squash for me. :)
I haven't tried Trader Joe's harvest mix yet, but that looks absolutely delicious!
yum! that looks so filling and delicious!!
I love lots of veggies, but when i was little I would only eat corn!
Sorry you got so hungry! The soup looks delicious.
Aww ... I'm in love with your dinner! So many of my favorite things! Great use of the Harvest Grains blend!!
