Cal Smart Harissa-Spiced Turkey with Almond Pilaf

HelloFresh Description:

You won't believe a meal this good is also calorie-conscious! A seasoned rice pilaf is accented with toasted almonds for some nutty crunch, while North African-spiced turkey and veggies bring warm, earthy vibes to complete the dish! Cal Smart is based on a per serving calculation of the recipe's kilocalorie amounts.

Thanks to the Harissa, a North African chilli paste, the dish has a bit of heat and a smoky flavour. I remember seeing a portion of Food Wars (the anime) where I first heard of Harissa. Meanwhile, the basmati rice is perfectly cooked but has a nutty and slightly sweet flavour because of the almonds, which perfectly balances the spicy turkey. Lastly, the parsley adds a bright and fresh note to the dish.

Overall, it is a flavourful and aromatic dish that balances the heat from the Harissa with the nuttiness of the almonds. It is such a delicious and satisfying weeknight dinner.
