Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 Tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Cups chopped sweet onion (2 onions)
  • 2 Pounds ground turkey
  • 1 Cup chicken or beef stock
  • 1/2 Cup good red wine
  • 1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes, or plum tomatoes in purée, chopped
  • 2 12-ounce jars roasted red bell peppers (drained, puréed)
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 4 heads of roasted garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon chile flakes

Directions

Heat oven to 400 degrees, cut tops of garlic, drizzle with olive oil, wrap with foil, and roast 45 minutes. Heat the olive oil in a large pot, add butter.

Add the onion and sauté over medium heat until translucent, 5 to 10 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Add the ground turkey
and cook until brown; drain excess water and fat.

Add the wine and cook on high heat, scraping up all the brown bits in the pan, until almost all the liquid evaporates, about 3 minutes. Add chicken or beef
stock, and let simmer for 7 minutes.

Stir in the tomato purée, puréed peppers, roasted garlic, parsley, basil, oregano, salt, pepper, and chile flakes.

Cover, and simmer on the lowest heat for 25 minutes.

 

Atkins Shopping Tip

Hit the salad bar at the grocery store for precut vegetables that can accompany any meal. Keep several bags of frozen veggies in the freezer; you can add these to casseroles, stir fries and omelets. Pick up pre-cooked rotisserie chicken and add to chili, stews, soups or salads. And stock up on canned foods like tuna or salmon, beans and no-salt-added tomatoes.

Atkins Cooking Tip

A crock pot cooks food at a low, steady temperature. Most crock pot recipes take about 8 hours and are fairly simple—just toss in your ingredients and let them cook during the day while you’re out.
