Healthy Lunch Bowl Part II ft. Ground Turkey
Tastes so nice I made it twice! Check out my first healthy lunch bowl post using my Asian Sesame Salmon recipe here. For those who aren’t a big fan of fish I came up with a different option for you. This one packs in double the protein with ground turkey AND an egg.
I know you are ready to dive into this recipe – just looking at that egg makes me want a bite. Eggs are something I always have in my kitchen – they are a quick way to get in some protein during breakfast, lunch and or dinner – yes it’s true! For a dish like this, (which you can have for lunch or dinner or both!) an egg prepared sunny side up adds the perfect sauce.
Here is what you will need for this healthy lunch bowl:
1/2 lb ground turkey (chicken or beef will do as well)
1/3 large red pepper
1 large carrot shredded
2 tablespoons of soya sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
Sriracha for taste
1/2 teaspoon garlic
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1 tablespoon grass-fed butter or olive oil
Side note: feel free to mix up the ingredients, if you don’t like peppers you switch it up for something else – I used beets in my other recipe for healthy lunch bowls.
To begin, prepare your ground meat. Heat up a frying pan, one hot add the butter or oil. Next add your ground meat, garlic and ginger. Your ground turkey is fully cooked when there is no more pink. (Add salt and pepper for some flavour as well!)
Once your meat is cook, toss in the soya sauce, sesame oil and if you like some spice drizzle some Sriracha.
Next prepare your bowl. Place your meat and veggies all around in sections. Leave the egg frying until the very end so that it is hot when serving.
Heat up your frying pan again – cook your egg to be sunny side up and then plop right on top of your veggies and meat. And VOILA!
