  • 1 cup onion finely chopped
  • 1-2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 lb. ground turkey 93/7
  • 1 - 1 ½ cup coconut milk lite
  • Cooked Quinoa or Rice
  • Cilantro optional

Curry Seasoning:

  • 1 ½ tsp. curry powder
  • 1 tsp. garam masala
  • ¼ tsp. cumin
  • tsp. turmeric
  • tsp. cayenne (or ¼ if you like spice)
  • 1 tsp. salt to taste
  • ½ tsp. pepper


  1. Saute onion in olive oil in a large skillet or pan over medium heat for 5-6 minutes, or until onions turn translucent.

  2. Add garlic and ground turkey.  Cook for another 7-10 minutes over medium heat, or until meat is cooked through.

  3. While meat is cooking whisk together the seasoning ingredients in a small bowl.

  4. Once meat is done cooking, add seasoning ingredients and coconut milk to the pan and stir until combined. (If you want your curry really thick, use less milk. If you would like it less thick, add more milk)
  5. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for another 10 minutes.
  6. Serve curry over rice or quinoa and sprinkle with cilantro. Enjoy!
