let's thai one on....


 
i made thai turkey with jasmine rice last night it was so easy and good.. the recipe is adapted from two different recipes from Ginny's Skinny Recipes i love her site.. anyway as I said before i never follow a recipe.. i actually don't think i can.. ha so this is a cross between her spicy thai beef and thai fried rice..

 
prep time: 10 minutes
cooking time: 30 minutes
servings: 4

ingredients:

 
  • 1 package of ground turkey
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped (I used yellow)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tblsp. fish sauce
  • 1 tblsp. soy sauce (low sodium)
  • 2 green onions (scallions) top and bottom
  • a handful of cilantro
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp. of crushed red pepper (optional.. shell doesn't like hot things so i had it my serving or i add siracha)
  • jasmine rice

 
make your jasmine rice according to package directions.  brown turkey in a non stick skillet.. when cooked all the way through add your pepper, onion and garlic.. cook for about 10 minutes.. then add cooked rice, fish sauce, soy sauce, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper.... cook for another 20 minutes on simmer.. (i personally like fish sauce so i sometimes add more i don't much care for soy sauce so i don't use very much but if you like add more...) just before serving add cilantro and green onions..
