Rice, ground turkey & veggies topped with an easy to make teriyaki sauce. This recipe is good for meal prep or making dinner for just one night.

N.B. If you have specific macro goals you may need to adjust the quantities or number of servings to better suit your targets. For example:

  • More Turkey or fewer portions
  • More (or less) rice to adjust the per meal carbs
  • Less oil for lower fat

  • 900 g Lean Ground Turkey, Raw
  • 180 mL Soy Sauce
  • 30 mL Red Wine Vinegar
  • 30 mL Sweetener *optional
  • 30 mL Cornstarch
  • 125 mL warm water
  • 60 mL fresh ginger, grated
  • 3 cloves Garlic. Minced minced
  • 270 g Basmati Rice, dry
  • 500 mL Water *approximate*
  • 30 mL Coconut Oil

  • 150 g Carrots, diced
  • 3 Green Onion, diced *Optional. Garnish
  1. [RICE] Bring rice, water, oil & boullion to boil in saucepan. Stir once, reduce heat to low, cover & simmer (~15-20min) until water is absorbed. Set aside.
  2. [SAUCE] Mix soy sauce, water, vinegar, sweetener, garlic & ginger in a small saucepan over medium heat. In a separate bowl - dissolve cornstarch in warm water &then slowly whisk into soy sauce mix. Remove from heat once thickened.
  3. Heat oil in large frying pan/wok, add diced onions/celery and cook until soft.
  4. Crumble in turkey and cook until turkey is ~ half cooked. Add carrots/broccoli and cook until turkey is no longer pink.
  1. Once cooked, re-weigh rice and turkey/veggie (separately). Divide each by total number of desired servings & portion into Tupperware containers. N.B. Turkey & Veggie amounts will vary slightly between portion.
  2. Pour teriyaki sauce over portioned meals. N.B. Depending on how "saucy" you like your meals, you may have some sauce leftover. If thats the case, make a note to use slightly less of each ingredient for next time. If you prefer not to pre-portion, store rice, turkey/veggie mix & sauce in 3 separate containers & serve yourself from these during the week. Use sticky notes to remind you how much of each.
