Spur of the moment decision….. Lets do a taco night tonight! That was the conversation my neighbour/friend Zannat and I had while picking up some groceries.
I always love the look of the table when we do this because it is full of colour.
This time Zannat made a yummy main for the taco using ground turkey with vegetables and hoisin. The flavour was great (so much so that I made a batch of it the next night to have for lunches and dinner when I didn’t feel like cooking).
We had tomatoes, cucumbers, sautéed mushrooms, grated old cheddar and pineapple pieces. We moved between the hard taco shells, soft tortilla shells and lettuce wraps. Simple meal, not hard to prepare and fun for all of us. I will admit though that it is not the tidiest meal we have ever had but that was part of the fun :-).
FYI – the ground turkey was browned in a pan with chopped and frozen vegetables, onion, a bit of garlic and just under a ¼ cup of hoisin sauce to 1 lb. of ground turkey. Add a can of lentils, stir and then add the hoisin in small amounts until it is fully mixed and you get the flavour you want.
Lunch the next day with leftovers was ground turkey and lentils with hoisin wraps 😉
