1 tablespoon oil

2 cups chopped vegetables, fresh, frozen or canned (try a mixture - celery, mushrooms, water chestnuts, bok choy, cabbage, zucchini, carrot or broccoli)

1 clove garlic, peeled and minced or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup cooked ground turkey or turkey breast cut into 1/2-inch cubes

1/2 teaspoon sugar

3 cups cooked brown rice or whole grain noodles

Medium skillet


1. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat (300 degrees in an electric skillet).

2. Add vegetables, garlic, ginger root and salt. Stir fry for 2 to 4 minutes.

3. Reduce heat to prevent scorching. Add cooked turkey and sugar. Cook until vegetables are tender and turkey is heated through, about 2 to 3 minutes.

4. Serve warm over rice or noodles.

5. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours


I tried this recipe with tofu instead of turkey or chicken, and I thought it was tastier. You could really taste the flavors of the fresh ginger and garlic better. A great recipe that makes a TON of food, too.
