We were planning on staying with friends on New Year’s Eve and I knew there would be plenty of off-limits food available throughout the night. I haphazardly threw together whatever I had in the fridge in an effort to have something healthy available for my family and anyone else not wanting to indulge in the typical snack food. Not only did everyone at the party love it, my friend asked for the recipe!
Yield: 6 servings
1 pound unseasoned ground turkey
36 ounces Campbell’s Tomato Juice (no sugar added)
3 medium, organic zucchini, in ¼ inch slices
3 large, organic carrots
Real Salt (sea salt) & Pepper to taste
1. Cook turkey on medium-high heat until done. Drain excess fat.
2. Add tomato sauce, zucchini, carrots, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low.
3. Simmer for one hour, stirring occasionally. Serve hot and top with freshly grated parmesan cheese if desired.
NOTE: For toddlers, remove zucchini skin. You may want to blend briefly in food processor to ensure there are no large chucks.
