  • 1 lb free-range extra-lean ground-turkey (you also can use grass-fed ground-beef)
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella-cheese (If you're doing whole30 or following paleo diet, don't add cheese)
  • 1 ½ cups sweet-potato diced
  • ½ cup onions diced
  • ½ cup yellow-pepper diced
  • 1 tsp garlic clove minced
  • salt and freshly-ground black-pepper
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive-oil
  • pinch of red-chili flakes (Optional)
  • fresh parsley for garnishing (Optional)


  • In a cast iron-skillet, heat the olive-oil on medium-high-heat.
  • Add the ground-turkey and garlic. Use a wooden-spoon to divide the turkey as it cooks. Stir occasionally and cook for 5minutes.
  • Add the yellow-peppers and onions, cook till the onions are tender.
  • Add the red-chili flakes, sweet-potato, pepper and salt.
  • Cover the skillet and cook till the sweet-potatoes are tender. Do not forget to stir periodically. If needed, add more olive-oil or a tiny bit of water to cook the sweet-potatoes quicker.
  • While the sweet-potatoes are cooking, preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  • When the sweet-potatoes are tender, then add the shredded mozzarella-cheese, and set the skillet in the oven to melt the cheese.
  • Once the cheese melts, remove from the oven and garnish with parsley.
