A classic fall recipe made with lean turkey meat, peas, seasonings, and topped with delicious mashed sweet potatoes.
1.5 lbs Sweet Potatoes peeled and chopped
½ Tsp Italian Seasoning Blend
Sea salt and pepper, to taste
The Filling: 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Medium Yellow Onion diced
1½ lbs Lean Turkey Meat
2 Tbsp Tomato Paste
3-4 Garlic Cloves minced
½ Tsp Dried Oregano
1 Tbsp Smoked Paprika
1 Cup Chicken or Beef Broth
1 Cup Frozen Peas or any other veggies like corn, carrots, defrosted
Preheat the oven to 375°F
Place the sweet potatoes in a large saucepan with just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are tender. About 10 minutes.
Drain and mash, then season with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning blend.
Heat oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Sauté the onions for 3-4 minutes, then stir in the garlic and cook for a minute or so.
Add the ground meat and cook, crumbling with a wooden spoon, until the meat is cooked through.
Stir in the tomato paste, oregano, paprika, salt and pepper, and broth. Simmer for a few minutes until the liquid is reduced, then stir in the peas.
Spread the meat mixture into a 2-quart baking dish. Add mashed potatoes on top and spread it evenly all the way to the sides.
Bake until the potatoes are just starting to brown, about 25-30 minutes. Rest, then serve and enjoy!
