Creamy turkey masala with veggie-packed rice– A Hellofresh recipe in the Thermomix

Hellofresh has used turkey in this recipe – I am not a big fan of turkey and I think chicken would have made the dish even nicer.

I have also changed the recipe in the way that most of the vegetables are now ‘hidden’ in the meat sauce rather than ‘visible’ in the rice!

The original recipe uses green beans. We like broccoli here!

How about a Moroccan chicken with lemony couscous for dinner tonight? I’ve just cooked one and have been instantly transported to Marrakech! Smells and tastes divine.

Homemade means you can adapt the spices to your taste buds and with a little help from the Thermomix, it is done in no time.
