TURKEY CHILLI WITH CHOCOLATE
This post-strength-session meal offers rich, invigorating flavours whilst also delivering some palatable health benefits for a smooth recovery. Dark chocolate adds depth to the flavour of this protein-packed dish – veggies and vegans can substitute the turkey for Quorn mince.
Spray of olive oil 1 onion, chopped 2 cloves of garlic, crushed 2 peppers, chopped 1kg lean turkey mince 4 tsp paprika 2 tsp cumin 2 tsp ground coriander 2 tsp oregano 2 tsp thyme 400g chopped tomatoes 500g passata 1 beef stock cube Chilli flakes (to taste) 400g red kidney beans Salt (to taste) 4-6 squares of dark chocolate (minimum 70% cocoa content), chopped or grated
Heat the oil in a large pan and add the onion and garlic – proceed to sweat these over a medium heat for a few minutes. Add the chopped peppers and sauté for 2-3min, then tip in the lean turkey mince. Once the meat is browned, add the spices and cook until they release their aroma. Pour in the chopped tomatoes and passata, then stir and cook for 5min. Crumble in the beef stock and sprinkle over the chilli flakes. Once the sauce begins to thicken, add the red kidney beans and chocolate – stir well and leave to cook for another 5-10min, then serve.
