Turkey Fried Rice
I adapted this from the Turkey Fried Rice recipe at Real Simple. I have been carrying this around for a while and I wanted to try it out. I added a different mix of vegetables and loved the way that this came out. This is a really nice simple meal, which is a great way to use leftover brown rice. It is also a very nice one-pan dinner idea. This is a real winner and we will definitely make it again.
3 tbsp Peanut or vegetable oil
8-10 oz Ground turkey
3 tsp Garlic, chopped (or cloves)
1 tbsp Ginger, minced (or ginger paste)
2 small (or 1 medium) Onion, chopped
8 oz Mushrooms, sliced
1 cup frozen Peas and carrots
1 cup frozen Edamame
2 cups Cooked brown rice
3 tbsp Hoisin sauce
3 tbsp Rice vinegar
1. Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground turkey, garlic, ginger, and chopped onions. Stir-fry (breaking the meat) for 5 minutes.
2. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook for 1 additional minute.
3. Add the frozen peas & carrots and the edamame. Mix thoroughly. Add the rice and the hoisin sauce and rice vinegar. Mix thoroughly again and cook for 2-3 minutes.
