Ingredients

    1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
    1 cup lean ground turkey
    1 cup brown rice, uncooked
    1 cup green bell peppers, sliced
    1 cup yellow bell peppers, sliced
    1 cup carrots, sliced or strips
    1/8 tsp black pepper
    1 tsp Oriental 5 spice blend
    1/2 tsp curry powder
    1 clove garlic
    1 cup onions
    1 tsp red pepper flakes

    3 tbsp low sodium soy sauce (optional)

Directions

1) Cook rice and set aside.

2) Brown turkey and drain. (See low-fat method below)

3) Add oil and spices* excluding soy sauce.

4) Add vegetables and mix together with turkey. Cook until vegetables are soft but still slightly crisp.

5) Add soy sauce (optional). Stir and serve with rice.

* Add spices to taste.

Makes four 1.5 cup servings.

LOW-FAT METHOD FOR BROWNING MEATS:
1) Place meat in a pot and add water so it just covers the meat. A skillet will do but watch it so it doesn't bubble over. Use a spoon to divide the meat into smaller pieces.

2) Let water come to a boil, stirring occasionally until meat has cooked through.

3) Drain and prepare as directed.

An added advantage to this method is the meat cooks more evenly and you don't have to constantly watch or stir it. You may lose a little bit of flavor which is easily added back with some beef seasoning.
