This makes a delicious supper dish. I use turkey in this recipe as it is a lean meat which is high in protein and very low in fat which is great for weight loss.

Serves 2-3

Ingredients:

225g turkey mince 

1 onion, finely chopped 

4 garlic cloves, crushed

1 large carrot, grated

1x 400g tin of tomatoes

500ml stock 

2 tbsp coconut oil 

1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped

Sea salt and pepper

300g courgetti spaghetti

Method:

  • Heat the coconut oil in a large casserole dish, add the onion and garlic and gently cook for 2-3 minutes. 

  • Add the turkey mince and chilli, turn up the heat and fry for a further 2-3 minutes until lightly browned. 

  • Add the tomatoes, carrot and stock, bring to the boil then simmer for 30-35 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary. 

  • Serve in bowls with courgetti spaghetti (it tastes great raw).  Enjoy!

* Serve with butternut squash noodles if you are really hungry

** Why not make the night before then just reheat when you walk through the door after a long day at work?
