Serves: 6 sandwiches


  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium Cal-Organic onion, diced (about a cup)
  • 1 cup Cal-Organic/Bunny Luv carrots, peeled and diced small
  • 1/2 cup Cal-Organic fennel, diced
  • 1 stalk Cal-Organic celery, diced
  • 1/2 cup Cal-Organic parsnips, diced
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 pound raw ground turkey
  • 3/4 cup ketchup or chili sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

  1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add all the diced vegetables, as well as chili powder and salt and pepper.

Stir to combine vegetables and turkey meat, until cooked through, about 4 minutes. Add ketchup, brown sugar, water, and Worcestershire sauce and mix well to allow the sugar to melt.
