This recipe will make 1 meal

(Obviously, you can double or triple ingredients if you’re making it for your family or friends)

Calories: About 450

Ingredients Needed:

  • 5 oz. Lean Ground Turkey Meat
  • Seasonings for Turkey (I use garlic powder, onion flakes and ground pepper)
  • 1 cup of Zucchini (about 6-8 slices)
  • .2 oz of cooked black beans
  • 1 Medium Sweet Potato
  • Olive Oil Spray
  • Coconut Oil (I use Spectrum Organic Coconut Oil: http://www.spectrumorganics.com/?id=87)

Directions:

  • Preheat Oven to 350
  • Make 3-5 turkey “sliders” from lean ground turkey meat (make sure to season with seasonings of your choice) and set aside.
  • Slice about 8-10 zucchini slices (thickness, a little thicker than a quarter) – set aside.
  • Slice the sweet potato into the thickness of quarters
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with olive oil spray (so the sweet potatoes don’t stick)
  • Spread the sweet potato slices over the baking sheet
  • Spray with a tiny bit of olive oil spray and season (I used cinnamon, cumin and pepper)
  • Put sweet potatoes in the oven for about 15 – 20 minutes
  • Put black beans in a pot on the stove and sprinkle with onion powder and garlic powder and let cook down for about 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Heat a pan, on the stove, for about 1 minute and line with coconut oil
  • Place turkey sliders in the pan, keeping an eye on to flip every few minutes
  • In another pan on a low heat lined with coconut oil and place the pre-sliced zucchini flipping every 1-2 minutes (so it doesn’t burn and doesn’t become soggy – these just need to be cooked through enough to have some flavor and act as buns)
  • Mash the black beans

Putting together:

  • Place zucchini on the plate
  • Place Turkey sliders on top of Zucchini
  • Smear smashed black beans on top of the slider
  • Place another piece of zucchini on top
  • Enjoy sweet potato chips on the side
  • EAT!

Happily & Healthily Yours,

Kristin
