Another quick and easy dinner that came together in one pot - love the convenience and yet you can still serve a healthy hearty meal.

1 lb. Extra lean ground beef

3/4 cup well rinsed and drained Basmati rice

1/2 a large onion roughly chopped

1 large garlic clove, minced

2/3 cup roughly chopped and peeled red pepper

2 handfuls fresh baby spinach

1/2 a zucchini cut into 3/4 inch thick pieces

1  14 oz can diced tomatoes

2 cups beef stock

1-2 Tblsp. Madras curry powder - based on your heat level

2 big Tblsp. organic Greek yogurt

salt to taste

Heat up a dutch oven or large pot on low medium heat.  Add the ground beef and cook to brown.  Once browned remove the ground beef from the pan to another bowl and set aside.  Add in the onion, red pepper, garlic and zucchini to the pan - saute about 5 minutes.

Add in the curry powder and salt and continue to saute for another 2 minutes.  Add the fresh spinach, diced tomatoes with juice, and beef stock - mix well to incorporate.

Bring to a simmer and add in the rice stirring well.  Lid on and simmer on minimum/low for 20 min.

Check for seasonings, remove from the heat and add in the yogurt giving a good stir and serve while hot.  Leftovers for tomorrow yayyyy!
