I love this recipe. It's so quick to prepare and aduki beans have the benefit of being easier to digest vs. typical kidney beans.
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons butter, ghee, avocado oil or olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 can (425 g) Aduki Beans (I like Eden Organic) drained and rinsed
1 pound (500 g) ground turkey or beef (free-range, organic preferred)
1 teaspoon ground cumin (or 1½ teaspoon for added heat)
½ teaspoon red chili flakes (or 1 teaspoon for added heat)
1 pinch cayenne pepper
3 drops dark-liquid stevia
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 jar marinara sauce (without sugar)
Sauté garlic and onions in butter, ghee or oil for about 3 minutes. Add turkey and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes. Add all spices and sweetener and stir for a few minutes. Add aduki beans and marinara sauce. Let mixture simmer for 5-7 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
I like to serve with diced avocado and a generous splash of fresh lime juice.
