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.
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!
