  • 1 tbsp olive or avocado oil
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 onion - diced
  • 2 carrots - diced
  • 3 ribs celery - diced
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes (28 oz)

  1. Dice all veggies, set aside

  2. In a large stock pot brown the turkey with 1tbsp of olive or avocado oil

  3. When the meat is brown, drain if necessary, and add in the vegetables and garlic - cook for 5 minutes

  4. Add in remaining ingredients, stir, and simmer for one hour (or until dinner time) Serve with your favourite toppings (cheese, sour cream, bacon bits, green onions, go nuts!) My favourite is cornbread on the side.  Or if you want to really copycat Panera, grab some of their take-home bread bowls and enjoy that way!

  5. *Slow Cooker option: Brown turkey on the stove. Add Turkey and all other ingredients into slow cooker, set on low for 8 hours.
