Turkey fried rice.

Last night I made a one pot wonder kind of dish.  It was so quick to prepare, easy and flavorful… with no leftovers remaining.  That’s always a winner for me!  This is a perfect weeknight meal.

Ingredients:

1 cup of rice (cook according to the package) I used Trader Joe’s Brown Jasmine rice.
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 pound of ground lean turkey
3 tablespoons of garlic, minced
6 scallions, sliced thinly
1 cup of snow peas (I cut mine in half because they were rather large)
5 carrots, peeled and sliced
3 tablespoons of low sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons of seasoned rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil
1 teaspoon of toasted sesame seed
1/4 cup  of roasted peanuts (garnish)

Directions:

Heat the oil in a skillet of a medium flame. Add the turkey to cook, breaking apart as you go.  After 4-6 minutes of cooking, add the garlic and about half of the scallions (use the other half for garnish).  After 8 minutes of cooking or so, add the rice and the remaining ingredients through sesame oil.  Cook the dish an additional  4-6 minutes for the flavors to blend.  Taste, adjust seasonings.  Then plate.  Top with sesame seeds, remaining scallions and roasted peanuts.  Enjoy!
