Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¾ cup uncooked rice 2 cups cooked
  • 1 head broccoli chopped into florets

Turkey

  • ¾ lb lean ground turkey see note 1
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger finely chopped

Sauce

  • 3 tablespoons honey see note 2
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce see note 3
  • 1 ½ teaspoons sesame oil
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • teaspoon pepper

Garnish

  • green onions (optional)

Instructions

  • Cook rice according to package directions. Portion out into four 2-cup capacity meal prep containers and allow to cool.
  • Shake up all sauce ingredients and set aside.
  • Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the broccoli and cook for 5 or so minutes, until slightly softened. Remove from heat and divide between meal prep containers.
  • Add turkey to pan. Cook, breaking it up with a spatula, for 5-8 minutes, until completely cooked through and no longer pink.
  • Make a space in the middle of the pan. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute, stirring up a bit.
  • Give the sauce a shake up and pour over the ground turkey and garlic/ginger. Stir until everything is mixed through, about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Divide turkey/sauce mixture between the meal prep containers. Sprinkle with green onions if desired.

Storage

  • Once everything has cooled, store in the fridge for up to 4 days.

To serve

  • Heat in the microwave until steaming hot, and enjoy!
