Korean Style Turkey and Rice Bowl
1/6 bunch of green onions
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 teaspoons ginger paste (I used heaping amount)
2 teaspoons garlic paste (I used heaping amount)
16 ounces ground turkey breast
brown jasmine rice (it calls for precooked jasmine rice you cook in the microwave- I used regular brown jasmine rice and it was fine.
1/3 cup hoisin sauce
1 (13 oz) Asian chopped salad kit
(if you are cooking your rice account for 20 minutes extra- so get that started)
1. Preheat large nonstick skillet on medium high, 2-3 minutes. Slice green onions.
2. Pour oil in skillet, then stir in ginger and garlic paste; cook and stir 1 minute. Add turkey; cook 4-5 minutes, stirring to crumble meat, and until 165 F. Meanwhile, if you are microwaving rice – follow package directions.
3. Add Hoisin sauce and greens mix and dressing (from kit) to turkey; (I turned down the temperature to low not to wilt salad too much.) and stir 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Serve turkey mixture over rice with green onions, almonds and wonton strips from the kit.
I don’t really have exact measurements. It’s more of going by the eye and taste.
and this makes a big soup pot of healthy goodness
I use russet potatoes (3 lbs) washed and cubed ( l like using the skin – I have a thing of it having more nutritional value with the skin on)
carrots ( I use the whole bag) cleaned and chopped into bite size (again skin on)
celery stalk (cleaned and chopped- leaves and all)
small onion- I like Vidalia onions- chopped
this is optional but I use about two or three finely chopped garlic cloves
Lentils ( I use the bag with seasoning)
Italian sausage (cut into bite size)
A- cook the onion and garlic until fragrant. Add the ground beef and sausage. cook until browned and cooked through ( I use a large soup pot so I can throw everything in and save on clean up later)
B- add the carrots and celery and cook until soft
C- add the water (again eye ball it I fill it about halfway up the pot)
D- add the lentils with the seasoning and give it a good stir
E- let it simmer for a few hours while watching the water levels- don’t let it get too low. I always keep it halfway up the pot
F- season with salt and pepper during the cooking process- just go by your taste
G- Enjoy with some crusty bread for dipping or not
