Healthy Ground Turkey Veggie Meal Prep Bowls Ingredients
The ingredients in this ground turkey and vegetable recipe are simple, healthy and tasty.
Ground turkey. Use lean ground turkey to make these healthy meal prep bowls. If turkey’s not available, you can use ground chicken or ground beef as well – whatever you prefer.
Green Vegetables. This easy meal prep idea comes with a selection of super healthy green vegetables that are, among other things, rich in protein. We’re talking green beans, broccoli and spinach. You can use whatever vegetables you want, but cauliflower, kale or even bok choy would be the best substitutes here.
Seasonings. Tamari sauce, sesame oil, crushed red pepper and lots of garlic are all pretty simple ingredients, but provide so much flavor to this healthy dish with ground turkey.
Rice. As mentioned above, rice is optional and you can substitute it for quinoa or leave it out altogether if you’re following a more high-protein low-carb diet in order to lose weight (for example).
How To Make This Healthy Ground Turkey and Vegetable Recipe
Start by washing and chopping whatever vegetables you want to use in this high-protein ground turkey recipe. In this case that would be just the spinach and broccoli, but I also did peel and mince the garlic.
Heat a skillet at medium-high heat and add the ground turkey with some garlic, crushed red pepper and olive oil to sautee for 2-3 minutes. Make sure to be breaking the ground turkey apart with the cooking spatula until no longer pink.
Next add in the broccoli, frozen green beans and spinach, then cover the skillet for about 3 minutes to allow the vegetables to cook.
Add in the tamari sauce, sesame oil, the rest of the garlic and the ginger and keep stirring occasionally. You need to do this for a few minutes (about 3 to max 4) to allow the turkey and the vegetables to cook through and absorb the flavors.
Well, congrats – you’ve got your easy dinner with ground turkey made in about 15-20 minutes. Now serve it up and enjoy immediately!
Rice is a great serving option for this meal. I also like to serve this dish with some chili oil to make it spicier. You can also use sriracha or whichever sauce you enjoy!
As mentioned, for a low-carb version, you can simply increase the amount of broccoli and green beans. That will also provide you with more protein, fiber and beneficial phytochemicals.
If you decide you don’t like rice, you can also serve the ground turkey and vegetable bowls with quinoa.
