Turkey Fried Brown Rice

Fried Rice has this age old stigma of being super greasy, and the furthest thing from healthy. While it does tend to live up to all of the rumors- when you break down what is actually inside you will find that it is really quite good for you. Vegetables- good… Eggs- good… Protein- good. This recipe is not only easy, filling, great to make for those meals that you prepare ahead of time… but delicious and extremely good for you.

Instructions:

  1. Prepare Brown Rice and set aside. If you prefer white rice- feel free to make the substitution.
  2. Chop Carrots, Zucchini, and Onion into small cubes (as uniform in size as possible), and set aside.
  3. Chop Garlic very fine.
  4. Slice green onions very thin, preferably on a bias simply because it looks much nicer in the dish.
  5. Heat Grapeseed Oil in large non-stick skillet on high heat.
  6. Once oil is hot, add Onion, Garlic, and Carrots, and cook until fragrant and the carrots begin to soften.
  7. At this point add the Ground Turkey. Continue to break up the Turkey with a wooden spoon or spatula, until it is completely broken up into bite sized chunks.
  8. Once the Turkey is almost completely cooked, add in the Bell Peppers and Zucchini. Right about now is when everything will begin to cook very fast- so time is of the essence. Be sure all your ingredients are completely prepped out before you begin.
  9. Continue to stir all the ingredients together until everything is cooked and has a nice golden brown to it.
  10. Deglaze the pan with half the Soy Sauce, add Brown Rice, and stir all ingredients until combined.
  11. Crack two eggs into a separate bowl, and whisk until completely beaten.
  12. Stir in the remaining Soy Sauce and Sriracha, and pour beaten egg over the ingredients. Fold egg into the entire dish until completely cooked.
  13. At the last minute, toss in the green onions(reserving 1 Tbsp. for garnish), plate, and enjoy.

This recipe makes enough to account for guests or plenty of left overs… what’s better than left over Fried Rice? I like- wait… Love turkey- so that is what I use in this recipe. If you want to try it with a different protein or vegetarian I can guarantee that it will taste just as good, if not better. Let me know how you like it… and certainly suggest any substitutions that you fancy.
