Ground Turkey with Potatoes, Tomatoes, Mint & Parsley

Ground Turkey with Potatoes and Mint | My Halal Kitchen

This is a quick weeknight meal if there ever was one. If you can’t find halal ground turkey you can substitute with ground beef or chicken instead; alternatively- and if you’re feeling adventurous- you can purchase the whole turkey (typically found in the freezer at most halal meat markets) and grind the meat yourself with attachments that can be used with most Kitchen Aid stand mixers. Enjoy!

Ground Turkey with Potatoes and Mint

Ground Turkey with Potatoes, Tomatoes, Mint & Parsley

Serves 4


2-4 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 cup yellow onion, diced

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 pound ground turkey

8-10 small boiled potatoes, quartered

1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered

1 teaspoon dried mint

1 tablespoon smoked paprika

Salt, to taste

Freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup fresh parsley or 2 tablespoons dried



Sauté the onion and garlic in warmed oil until the garlic has softened. Add the tomatoes and cook down until they have released all of their juices.

Add the ground turkey, making sure to break it up with a wooden spoon or utensil so that they are separated and can cook evenly. Brown nicely, about 4-5 minutes.

Add the potatoes and the herbs. Add more oil if necessary to brown the potatoes. Cook for an additional 10 minutes, covered.

When the meat is close to being finished, add the parsley. Serve with fresh pita, naan bread or tortillas.

    1. thanks for visiting, Lubna. You’ve got some great flavors of your own on your blog- we need to connect soon 🙂

  1. Well, looks like this is going to be dinner tonight……I was going to do something else with the same ingredients, but this looks better to me!!!

  2. This looks delicious mashAllah. It’s very similar to Iraqi makhlamah that I make pretty often for my family, only without the addition of eggs. Very simple and so satisfying!

  3. Yvonne, I wanted to come back and tell you that I did make this that night! It was great! I used ground beef that had 4% fat in it. My whole family ate it up like you would never believe! I served it with Hummus, and fresh Pita bread. A big hit in our house, and I will make it again!

    1. So glad you and your family liked it! You can also make it with ground chicken, beef or lamb, of course, too!
