Turkish-esque eggplant and turkey macaroni

leave a comment »

Slice 1 large eggplant and drain in a colander.

Chop 2 small onions and brown in oil in a large skillet.

After the onions start to brown, add a few cloves of minced garlic.

Chop the eggplant into cubes and brown in the same pan. Add a splash of white wine, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

Add 1 package ground turkey and cook, breaking up the meat with a spatula. Season with cinnamon, cumin, nutmeg, sugar, salt, red pepper flakes, and balsamic vinegar. 

Chop 1 tomato and a few Tbsp of sun-dried tomatoes. Add to the pan. Continue cooking and simmering until most of the liquid has evaporated.

In the meantime, cook 1/2 package of whole wheat elbow macaroni according to the package directions. 

Mix the macaroni with the eggplant mixture. Mix in chopped fresh parsley. Season with a drizzle of walnut oil.
