Did you know turkey meat has about 24.6 gm. of protein per 100 gm., making it one of the highest sources of animal protein?
Plus, turkey meat is rich in phosphorus and potassium, essential minerals which helps our body’s metabolism and gives the body a much-needed boost of Vitamin B3 (Niacin).
Besides, turkey meat is very lean, much leaner than most other animal proteins, and can be used in many ways.
In this recipe, ground turkey will be cooked down with beans and a huge array of vegetables for a guilt-free yet tasty meal, which would keep you full for hours.
The recipe here serves 6-8 people easily, and freezes nicely, so make a big batch of this and eat it through the week.

In this version of the green curry, we will be cutting out most of the oil and adding coconut milk, long known as one of the best sources of minerals like potassium, magnesium and calcium, and add plenty of green vegetables to make sure the recipe is not just balanced, but extremely tasty too.
We will also sneak in some spinach to make sure our Vitamin K intake remains unaffected, and some extra fibers will be getting in with the aid of a number of vegetables.
