- Pour the vegetable mixture into a large bowl. Add the cooked millet, ground Garlic and Parmesan Plentils Crunchy Lentil Chips, turkey thigh, half of the tomato sauce, and the basil.
- With a large spoon (or your hands) mix together until evenly combined. If mixture looks dry, add some of the reserved tomato-soaking water until it is slightly moist.
