Spiced Eggplant & Beef (or Turkey) Stir-Fry

Spiced Eggplant and Turkey Stir-Fry
I recently tried this recipe and it was a hit in our home.  The original recipe called for ground sirloin, but I used ground turkey and it turned out to be very tasty.  

  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1/2 -inch strips
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tbsp sweet paprika
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 lb baby eggplant, cut into 1/2-inc rounds
  • 1 yellow squash, cut into 1/2-inch rounds
  • 1/2 lb extra-lean ground sirloin or ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup minced radish tops, rinsed well and patted dry, optional
  1. In a large nonstick pan, heat 1 tsp oil on medium for 1 minute.  Add onion and pepper and saute for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, blend cumin, coriander, paprika and salt. *I added 2 tsp of garlic powder for more seasoning* Set spice blend aside. 
  3. Stir tomatoes and garlic into onion mixture on stove top and cook for another 2 minutes.  Add remaining 2 tsp oil and stir in eggplant and squash.  Cover pan and cook for 5 minutes.  Scoop mixture into a large bowl and set aside.
  4. Place the same pan back on medium heat and add sirloin.  Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Add reserved spice blend and cook for 1 minute longer.  Remove pan from heat and return vegetables to pan, mixing well, for 1 minute or until heated through.  Divide stir-fry mixture among 4 bowls or plates, garnishing with radish tops, if desired. 
Serves 4; Hands-on time 30 minutes; total time 30 minutes
