30 Minute Turkey and Veggie Dinner

Most of the time I plan meals very well but yesterday morning, I thought I had all the things to make a quick Chicken Fried Rice, but during my morning dinner prep time, I discovered I had no frozen veggies, no chicken, not enough eggs and only had rice!

Thankfully I still had some grocery money left so I thought about what I could make that was quick, filling and economical!  We have rice, so I bought some ground turkey, two bags of frozen veggies and some eggs.

Turkey Meatballs, rice and some frozen veggies sounded real good.

However when we finally made it home after a family errand, I only had just over 30 minutes until our normal family dinner time.

What to do???

Nix, the meatballs and instead I browned the ground turkey, seasoned it with Kosher salt, pepper, garlic powder, cumin, ginger and paprika.  I then sautéed the 1 bag of bell peppers and onions along with one bag of frozen stir fry veggies in coconut oil…

The result was….

…and it only took 30 minutes! Which is awesome because dinner usually takes me 1 to 1/2 hours.  I am going to make more of these types of meals.

Here is the recipe but since I did not measure season to fit your taste.

1 lb ground turkey

Kosher salt or Real Salt (apprx. 1/2 tsp)

Black Pepper -Dash

Paprika (apprx. 1/2 tsp)

Garlic Powder (apprx. 1/2 tsp – fresh chopped garlic would be awesome)

Cumin (apprx. 1/2 tsp)

Ginger (apprx.  1/4tsp or more – fresh ginger would be wonderful too)

1 bag bell pepper and onion frozen veggies (or 2 bell peppers and 1 onion)

1 bag frozen stir fry veggies (or a mixture of whatever you like about 2 cups)

Rice, we used Jasmine but you prepare what you like according to package

 

Brown ground turkey in skillet with a little coconut oil. Then add seasonings.

In a separate skillet over high heat, add coconut oil and frozen/fresh veggies.  Season with same amount of seasonings for turkey.

Serve immediately.  Makes 8 servings.
