In a medium sized pot, on medium heat, add olive oil, stir fry a chopped onion, broccoli florets and chopped green pepper. When onions are wilted, add in a pound of organic ground turkey and continue to stir for about 5 minutes or so until the turkey starts to brown.

Add one and a half bottles of organic spaghetti sauce (or make your own). Add  4 or 5 shakes each of dried flakes of oregano, basil and thyme and a half of a small tin of tomato paste into the mix. Add a few dashes of pepper.

Cook for about 1 ½ hr. on low heat. But for even richer sauce. Simmer for 3 hours.


Boil 3/4 cup plain Quinoa and ¾ cup of red quinoa together in double the amount of water; simmer until cooked, about 15 mspinachin.

On a plate put about 2/3 cup of mixed quonia. (Alternatively use soba noodles – boils up in 7 minutes.) Add turkey/vegetable spaghetti sauce on top. Add grated cheese if desired.


Serve with a green spinach salad (about 4 cups of spinach), 12 black olives, a cup of diced red beets and crumbled goat cheese. For dressing use one – two tsp. of maple syrup, 3 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 tsp. of cider vinegar, salt and pepper. Great meal. Kids love it.
