Tender ground turkey goes into a pan to get acquainted with the wonderful, warm spices of our Into the Taj blend for this recipe duo. For supper, it’s served over a heavenly pilaf that sees turnips, cabbage and peas dotting basmati rice. At lunchtime, it’s a real pita pleaser when laid out with cucumber. ***Lunch cooking time: 10 min.

Start the pilaf
Peel and small-dice the turnips. In a medium pot, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the turnips, ½ the cabbage and ⅓ of the spices, 2 to 3 min., until beginning to soften. Add the rice, 1 ¼ cups water (double for 4 dinner portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 17 to 20 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Set the remaining cabbage aside in the fridge for lunch.

Cook the turkey
Meanwhile, peel, halve and small-dice the onion. In a large, high-sided pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the onion, 2 to 3 min., until softened. Add the turkey*; season with the remaining spices and S&P. Cook, breaking up the meat, 4 to 6 min., until browned and cooked through. Add the roasted red pepper spread and tomato sauce. Cook, 2 to 3 min., until warmed through. Set ½ the turkey aside in the fridge for lunch.
