Thai-Indian Chop

This is something I completely created on a whim. I had these ingredients in my fridge and the idea came. I love the sweetness of the warm yams and cinnamon with the cold, sour crunch of the apples and the salty, savory turkey with the refreshing cilantro. It's a mouthful of lively flavors that will not disappoint!

Thai-Indian Chop
  • 1 large yam, chopped
  • 1 large sweet potato, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut water (coconut milk will also work)
  • 2 green Granny Smith apples, chopped
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 lb ground chicken or turkey
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 cups fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
 In a large skillet on medium high, add coconut oil, onions, potatoes, yams and cinnamon. Cook until potatoes are tender. Add ground turkey, salt and curry. Cook until turkey is browned. Add coconut water and chopped cilantro and simmer for five minutes.

Place on serving dish and toss is chopped apples. Top with fresh cilantro sprigs. Enjoy!
