1 large Chinese eggplant (rinsed, pat dry, sliced in wheels, salted to let it sweat, rinsed & dry again) ($1.75)
½ lb. 99% fat free ground turkey ($2.75)
1 frozen sofrito molido (.25)
3 tbsp. Angie’s basting olive oil (.50)
1 tsp. Cilantro Lime dry seasoning (.20)
1 tsp. ground Turmeric (.10)
1 large avocado ($1.25)
Slice and salt the eggplant half, allow to sweat, rinse, pat dry and rub ½ tbsp. of my basting oil.
Season the turkey with Cilantro Lime, turmeric and 1 tbsp. basting olive oil. Refrigerate.
Over med heat, add the turkey to a skillet with ½ tbsp. of basting oil, then the frozen sofrito. Stir.
In a separate skillet with 1 tbsp. basting olive oil, cook the dried eggplant wheels until tender and brown on both sides.
To plate, bring the eggplant wheels to the plate, side the ground turkey and the sliced avocado. (If you have some fresh herbs, garnish with them.) This is a nice portion dish, however, if want to compliment it, just get some leftover rice from the fridge or Couscous and you are done.
