  • 1 pounds ground turkey
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tsp ground thyme
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 cup white onion
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 ½ to tomatoes diced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • ½ cup cooked chickpeas


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground turkey to the skillet, season with garlic and thyme, and cook, breaking the meat up with a spoon, until no longer pink, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Add tomato paste and lemon juice and stir to mix. Cook for an additional 2 minutes or until tomato paste is well incorporated. Add onion, parsley, lemon juice, diced tomatoes, paprika and cook for 10 – 15 minutes until the tomatoes have released most of their juice.

Use cooked chickpeas instead of canned peas. The dish will taste better.
