{Midweek Meal} Turkey Goulash

28 November 2012

I’ve been trying to think of recipes to use my freshly harvested peppers in, and a hearty Autumnal goulash popped into my head. To make it a bit healthier I’ve used lean turkey meat. It only took about half an hour to throw together, so makes a perfect midweek meal.


  • vegetable oil
  • 400g turkey meat
  • 1 large green pepper (or 4 mini peppers, in my case^^)
  • 1 tin or carton of tomato passata (ca. 500g)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon ground garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon stock powder (vegetarian or meat, as you prefer)
  • 1 teaspoon smoky paprika powder
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Cut your turkey into small chunks, sprinkle with the garlic powder and fry in a couple of tablespoons of vegetable oil until brown all over.
  • Chop the pepper into small chunks and add to the turkey; cook for about 5 minutes until the pepper begins to soften.
  • Add the tomato passata and hot water and bring to the boil, then stir in the stock powder and paprika powder. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Lower the heat and leave to cook for another 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  • Serve on a bed of fluffy rice.
