Blizzard Chow

Posted on Mon 25 January 2016 in recipes

I came up with the receipe below while making the most of my blizzard food stash.


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • ~4 medium celery stalks, diced
  • ~4 medium carrots, diced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • ~6 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1tsp Chinese five spice
  • 1tsp basil
  • 1tsp oregano


  1. Brown ground turkey and leave on medium heat.
  2. Heat the garlic and onion until the onion is clear.
  3. Add garlic, onion, and spices to the turkey.
  4. Heat the rest of the veggies in a separate pan.
  5. When the veggies are tender, add half of them to the ground turkey.
  6. Put the otiher half in a blender and blend them into a sauce.
  7. Add the veggie sauce to the ground turkey.
  8. Adjust sauciness by adding a cup or 2 or water to the ground turkey.
  9. Continue heating until you're convinced the turkey is finished cooking.
  10. Salt & pepper to taste.

I only blended half the veggies because the pan I was using was too small to cook all the veggies at once, but it turned out really nice, especially with some chipotle hot sauce.
