Low Fat Cuban Style Turkey Picadillo

Low Fat Picadillo

To keep it mega lowfat, brown the ground turkey in a nonstick pan, then add the vegetables and spices.  For more flavor, use up to 2 tbsp of coconut or olive oil for the browning, it will still be lowfat. Let them lightly brown together on medium heat.  Do not let the garlic burn.  When the onions are golden, add the stock and tomato sauce, cover and let simmer about 20 minutes.   Remove the lid, add the green olives and raisins and let the extra liquid evaporate.  Serve on rice or inside a tortilla.  You can also add a diced potato in with the vegetables if you like.  See ingredients etc below.
