4 bay leaves
1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
1/2 tablespoon dried thyme
Salt and Pepper
3 cups cooked rice (optional), for serving
- Heat oil in large pot or saucepan over medium heat, and add garlic, stirring until it begins to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add ground turkey and cook until browned and crumbled, breaking up with wooden spoon.
- Add tomatoes, chickpeas, potatoes, bay leaves, oregano, thyme, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Fill empty tomato can with water and pour into pot. Bring ingredients to boil, and reduce heat to medium-low to maintain a simmer.
