img 8251


  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper, or to taste
  • 16 ounces 93%-lean ground turkey
  • ½ teaspoon fennel seeds (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 6 cups lightly packed pre-chopped kale or baby kale
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 3 8-inch naan breads (whole grain would be the healthiest choice)
  • 1 ½ cup mozzarella cheese (I used fresh)


  • Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler to high.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil, garlic and crushed red pepper in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. As soon as the garlic starts to sizzle, add turkey, spices and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Cook, breaking up the turkey with a wooden spoon, until it is almost cooked, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add kale, vinegar and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt; cook, stirring, until the kale is wilted and the turkey is no longer pink, 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove from heat.
  • Place naan a large baking sheet and brush with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Top with equal portions of the turkey mixture and mozzarella.
  • Broil until the cheese is melted and the edges are starting to brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Cut in half.
