  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 large onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup carrot, diced
  • 1/2 green pepper, diced
  • 1 lbs lean ground turkey
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 1/2 Tbs brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 Tbs tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup diced canned tomatoes

Set a heavy-based pot over medium-high heat and add a 3-count of olive oil. Add onions, peppers and carrot and saute for 2 to 3 minutes until onions are translucent. Add ground turkey, season well with salt and pepper and brown well all over, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, about 7 to 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, stir until well combined, reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 12 minute.  Season it once more before serving.
