Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. Oil (we prefer Avocado Oil)
  • 1 Pound Ground Turkey, Extra Firm Tofu cut into 1/2 inch cubes, or Grass Fed Ground Beef
  • 1/2 Cup finely diced Yellow Onion
  • 1/2 Cup finely diced Celery
  • 1/2 Cup grated Carrot
  • 1 Cup small diced Red or Green Bell Pepper
  • 1/2-1 Cup Water
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic, minced or 1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 3 Ounces Tomato Paste (1/2 of a 6 ounce can)
  • 7-8 Ounces Tomato Sauce (about half a 15 ounce can)
  • Half a pinch of Ground Cloves
  • 1-2 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
  • 4 Cups Spinach Leaves
  • 1/2 Cup finely chopped Parsley Leaves

Directions

  1. Over medium-high heat, heat 1 Tbsp. of the oil in a large sauté pan.
  2. Sauté the turkey, beef, or tofu until browned and cooked through.
  3. Remove from the pan.
  4. Add the remaining oil. Add the onions, celery, carrots, and bell pepper and cook for 2 minutes. Splash in 1-2 Tbsp. of water to steam and soften the vegetables.
  5. When vegetables are softened, add the garlic and cook for a minute.
  6. Add the tomato paste and cook for a minute or two.
  7. Add the tomato sauce and all of the other ingredients with the exception of the spinach and parsley. Cook, while stirring, another 5 minutes.
  8. Just before serving, add the spinach and parsley and stir just until the spinach is wilted.
