What you’ll need

  • ½ lb. Ground turkey, cooked (steamed or simmered)
  • 1 cup Peeled, chopped, and steamed carrot
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • ½ cup dried apricots, cut in half
  • 1/4 cup of chicken broth or water, as needed

How to make it:

  1. Fill a pot with 2 inches of water and bring to a boil over high heat. Distribute the carrots in a steamer basket and place in the pot. Cover and steam until tender, 8-10 minutes. Remove the steamer basket from the pot and let the carrots cool
  2. In a large frying pan over medium- high heat, warm the olive oil. Add the ground turkey and ¼ cup of broth or water. Cook, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon and stirring constantly until the meat is opaque throughout and no longer pink, 5-6 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly
  3. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the turkey to a food processer or blender, reserving any meat juices remaining in the pan. Add the carrots, apricots, and ¼ cp of the reserved meat juices, adding broth if there are not enough reserved juices. Puree until smooth or until the desired consistency is achieved.
  4. Serve immediately. To store, refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 2 days, or freeze in individual portions for up to 3 months
