Turkey Teriyaki Bowls


Hey ya'll!


I wanted to share this super quick, easy ground turkey recipe because it's something I make all the time after a long day at work. It's easy to throw together and uses minimal dishes to create. (which is also important after working all day!)


It has a lot of flavor and makes a great meal prep for the week as well as a healthy dinner.


I like to keep my recipe posts short and sweet - sometimes spicy ;)

But I know it's daunting to scroll through pages and pages for one screenshot of the recipe.


So let's get started!


What you will need:


For the teriyaki sauce -

  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar or less if desired

  • 2 tsp minced garlic

  • 1 tsp ground ginger

  • 1 tbsp cornstarch

  • 2 tbsp warm water

For the meal -

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

  • 1/2 cup diced onion

  • 2 tbsp minced garlic

  • 1 lb ground turkey

  • 1 cup finely chopped broccoli

  • 2 large carrots peeled and grated

  • 2 green onions diced for garnish

  • 4 cups cooked white or brown rice divided for each serving

I like to use Uncle Ben's ready Jasmine rice when I make this because it's quicker and I like the taste of it! It is a white rice but for some reason I just really like it wish this dish and plus I seem to always want to pull off rice before it's done if I boil it on the stove.


I also use this Kitchen Aid Mixer to chop my veggies because it makes life so much easier! I used it here for the onion, broccoli, and carrots. Broccoli got a little too chopped but everything else was perfect.


Instructions:

  • Mix all ingredients (EXCEPT cornstarch and warm water) of the teriyaki sauce in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together 2 tbsp warm water and cornstarch until cornstarch is completely dissolved.

  • Heat sauce over medium heat. Slowly add in cornstarch mixture and simmer until thickened. Remove from heat and set aside.

  • Heat vegetable oil in small skillet over medium high heat. Add diced onions and cook until soft.

  • Crumble ground turkey and garlic into the pan and cook until turkey is about half cooked. Add chopped carrots and broccoli and continue to cook until done.

  • Pour teriyaki sauce over cooked turkey and vegetable mixture and stir. Simmer for about 5 minutes.

  • Once rice is ready (or if you opted for the ready rice bags) spoon out some of the meat and vegetable mixture over the rice.

  • Garnish with green onion and serve, or store for the week!

This is a low calorie, delicious meal and hopefully will be one of your new favorites as well!
