You know those nights that you have nothing planned for dinner and you don't feel like cooking? You are tired, you have nothing thawed from the freezer, and if your anything like me, you stall until a kid complains that they are "soooooooooo hungry". Then you panic a little and consider feeding them pancakes for dinner...again.
I have been working hard at coming up with some very easy, but still healthy recipes for nights like this.
I cook large portions so that we have them for lunch during the week instead of grabbing something less healthy. Go ahead and cut the recipe in half if you need to.
2 lbs ground turkey or lean ground beef
-1 large chopped apple
1 medium chopped onion
1 14 oz bag of frozen peas
salt and pepper
1 can coconut milk
juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons curry powder (adjust for your taste)
In a large pan, brown the ground meat. Drain if you need to. Add apple, onions, peas, salt, and pepper. Cook until onions are soft. The apples should still be a bit crisp.
Add the coconut milk, lime, cilantro, and curry powder. Stir together and bring to a simmer for 3-5 minutes.
Serve over rice, brown rice, quinoa, or your favorite grain.
This is very quick and easy. If you cook this for your family, I'd love to hear back from you in the comments.
