Ingredients

  • 2 lbs cabbage, coarsely shredded
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced & divided
  • 2 lbs ground turkey
  • 2 tsp thyme, dried
  • 2 tsp oregano, dried
  • 1 3/4 tsp salt
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 1/2 cups water + 1 bouillon cube OR any stock, low sodium
  • 2 cups long grain brown rice, rinsed & drained
  • 6 oz can tomato paste, low sodium
  • 28 oz can diced tomatoes, low sodium
  • 1 small bunch dill, finely chopped
  • Greek yogurt, for serving

Instructions

    1. On Instant Pot, press Sauté and let appliance preheat on high until display says Hot. Swirl oil to coat, add onion and 2 cloves of garlic; cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    2. Add turkey, thyme, oregano, salt and pepper; cook for 4 minutes, constantly breaking meat into small pieces with spatula. Meat won’t get browned and some pink pieces are OK.
    3. Add cabbage and stir.
    4. Add water + bouillon cube (stock), rice, tomato paste and diced tomatoes. Do not stir.
    5. Close the lid, set pressure vent to Sealing and press Cancel to turn Sauté off. Then press Pressure Cooking on High for 18 minutes. Display will say ON, Instant Pot will take about 15 minutes to come to pressure, you will see a bit of steam coming out from a valve, then float valve will rise and countdown will begin.
    6. After 18 minutes, display will say OFF. Turn pressure vent to Venting position and let steam out, which takes 2-3 minutes. I recommend doing so outside to avoid the smell and mess in the house.
    7. When float valve (pin) is down open the lid, add 1 garlic clove and dill, then stir gently but well. Serve hot with Greek yogurt and whole grain toast.
