Set a nonstick skillet on medium high heat and spray it with a little olive oil. When the skillet is hot, toss in the turkey (or seitan or veggie ground) and chop with a wooden spatula and stir until it is done, about 10-15 minutes.
Add the cooked meat (or vegan alternative) to a slow cooker along with the rest of the ingredients.
Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4 hours. I recommend cooking it longer so the flavors really meld together.
Enjoy with brown rice, quinoa, couscous or my favorite, backed sweet potato!
