This Georgian turkey lobio is a hearty dish perfect for chilly evenings and rich in nutrients that will keep your family healthy and happy.

This recipe is slightly different from the traditional Georgian version because I added turkey, but I feels this is a great way to improve the dish and make it even more nourishing. The combination of red beans and turkey makes it very rich in protein, which is great for growing kids and active adults tired after work.
It should be noted that my recipe is spicy, so if you have young children or someone who doesn’t like spicy food, you can adjust the amount of red pepper or cayenne pepper flakes you use (or just use plain rice). However, if you’re like me and love some spiciness in your food, you’ll find that pepper adds a great kick to the dish.
Overall, this red bean lobio is a nutritious and tasty dish that I highly recommend. This is a great way to combine both types of proteins in one meal and is sure to satisfy even the biggest appetites.
