Apple Turkey Picadillo

Apple Turkey Picadillo (Adapted from Eating Well)

2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
1 garlic clove, minced
8 ounces ground turkey
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 medium Granny Smith apple, chopped
1 cup chopped tomato
3 tablespoons chopped green olives
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
4 whole wheat pitas, sliced in half

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium. Stir in onion and garlic - cook until the onions begin to soften, about 2 to 4 minutes. Add turkey - cook, stirring to break up the meat, until lightly browned, about 4 to 6 minutes.

Add cumin, oregano, salt, pepper and cloves - stir to combine and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in vinegar and scrape up any browned bits on the bottom of the skillet. Stir in chopped apples, tomato, olives and Worcestershire sauce. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until any liquid in the pan has reduced to a syrupy glaze, about 8 minutes. Scoop into pita halves to serve.

Makes 4 servings.
