Turkey, Sweet Potato and Pea Curry {Plus Kale!} Crockpot Dinner

Turkey, Sweet Potato and Pea Curry {Plus Kale!} Crockpot Dinner

You can easily subtract the meat (and garnish of yogurt) from this dish to make a wonderful vegan dinner! 

Serves 2 for dinner, or perhaps 3 smaller lunch servings

YUM. This was dinner last Friday, and it was all just "thrown" together with creativity in the crockpot with delicious results. I had to share this quick, healthy and tasty recipe with you! Remember, curry spices are absolutely wonderful for your health, as well! Here's what I did:


1/2 lb lean ground turkey
2 large sweet potatoes, washed and sliced into thick rounds
1 bag of frozen peas
5-6 green onions, diced into small pieces
4 large leaves of Kale, chopped into small pieces
1 cup of water
Curry Powder
Kosher Salt

Garnish: Greek yogurt and fresh chopped cilantro

Add the turkey (raw) into the crockpot (I have a medium sized pot which was plenty big). You can brown meat ahead of time if you like, I didn't to save time. This created somewhat bigger chunks of turkey in the curry, which we really liked, rather than fine bits. Add potatoes, peas, chopped onions and kale. Add cup of water. Stir ingredients. Add spices to taste, and stir once more to incorporate everything.

Turn crockpot on high (depending on the power of your crockpot) and allow to simmer for about 4 hours with lid on. This was an easy "lunchbreak" dinner for me, because I threw all of the items together on my lunchbreak from work, and when I returned...voila!

You will know your curry is done when potatoes are soft. Yes, the rounds will fall apart. Gently stir and break apart any extra large chunks of turkey if you have included the meat. Once you have stirred and incorporated all the ingredients carefully, serve in bowls with a garnish of Greek yogurt and chopped fresh cilantro!
