  • 3 medium sweet potatoes
  • 3 roma tomatoes chopped
  • 5 white cello mushrooms
  • 2 pearl onions sliced
  • 1 ear of corn
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic chopped or minced
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Olive oil
  • 1 stalk green onion chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Wrap potatoes in foil and prick a few holes in each with a fork or end of a sharp knife. Place on a cookie sheet to bake for about one hour.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium-high flame. Add chopped tomatoes and cook down (about six minutes).

  3. Add turkey, sea salt, black pepper, chili powder, and onion.
  4. Once turkey is browned, add garlic, mushrooms, and corn. Cook for another three to four minutes or until mushrooms are tender and garlic is fragrant.

  5. Carefully remove sweet potatoes from oven and foil. Cut each in half lengthwise then slice an "X" in the middle of each.

  6. Top sweet potato halves with turkey mixture. Garnish with green onion, if desired.
