Ingredients
  • 1 pound of ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1½ chopped onion
  • 1 or 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 shredded carrots

  • 2 jars of canned tomatoes (or stewed tomatoes)
  • 1 can of tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2½ to 3 cups of water
  • 1 pint of chicken broth
  • ¼ cup pesto (I just threw some basil, olive oil, and pine nuts into a food processor and chopped fine)
Instructions
  1. Cook up the ground turkey with the coconut oil in a skillet and drain.
  2. Put this into the crockpot.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the crockpot. You can choose to add the pesto here, or you can add it after it has finished cooking.
  4. This can simmer all day on low or set for a couple of hours so that all flavors incorporate.

 

I found this recipe in a slow-cooker recipe book that I have (and I modified it of course).  I love cooking in the crockpot!  It is really quick to put together and you will have a great meal for lunch or dinner.
