  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound free-range extra-lean ground turkey (you also can use grass-fed ground beef)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic clove minced
  • ½ cup onions diced
  • ½ cup yellow pepper diced
  • cups sweet potato diced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • A pinch of red chili flakes optional
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese (If you're doing Whole30 or following Paleo diet, don't add cheese)
  • Fresh parsley for garnishing (optional)


  • In a cast iron skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add the ground turkey and garlic. Use a wooden spoon to break up the turkey as it cooks. Stir occasionally, and cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the onions and yellow peppers, and cook until the onions are soft.
  • Add the sweet potato, red chili flakes, salt, and pepper.
  • Cover the skillet, and cook until the sweet potatoes are tender. Don’t forget to stir occasionally. If necessary, add more olive oil or a little bit of water to cook the sweet potatoes faster.
  • While the sweet potatoes are cooking, preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  • When the sweet potatoes are tender, add the shredded mozzarella cheese, and put the skillet in the oven to melt the cheese.
  • When the cheese melts, remove from the oven, and garnish with parsley.
