Ground Turkey Stir-Fry

Cooking, food, Frugal living, Home, recipes

This recipe has fast become a favorite go to recipe on busy nights.  It is very easy to substitute veggies based on what you have on hand, either fresh or frozen.  It has been made even healthier by using ground turkey instead of red meat.


  • 1 lb ground turkey  (I look for these to be marked down every time I shop.  When I get lucky, I stock up)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 garlic gloves minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 16 oz of any vegetables you have on hand.  I typically use bell peppers, onions, carrots, broccoli, but you can also use frozen bagged vegetables, cabbage, cauliflower.  Like I said–use what you have.
  • 4 teaspoons soy sauce (regular or lite)
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar

Heat olive and sesame oil over medium/high heat.  Add ground turkey, garlic and ground ginger.  Saute until turkey is fully cooked.  Add the vegetables and cook until crisp/tender.  Add soy sauce and vinegar.  Cook for 1-2 minutes.  Season with additional vinegar and soy sauce as needed.  Serve over rice.

    I like the Asian spin in this dish. (Shall I say Japanese is my fave food?)
    Sesame oil adds so much flavor to any recipe, it is a staple in my fridge!
