Number of Servings: 4


    Jasmine Rice, pre-Cooked, 2 cups cooked
    Butter, unsalted, 3 tbsp
    Minced Garlic, 1 Tbsp
    Minced Ginger, 2 Tbsp
    Minced Lemongrass, 1 Tbsp
    Large Eggs, 2
    Ground turkey, 8 oz
    Lite Soy Sauce, 2 tbsp
    Sesame Oil, 1 tbsp (optional)
    Mint, 1 tsp (optional - garnish)


Used jar minced ginger, lemongrass, and garlic for ease. Make rice ahead of time and wait until cold to use in recipe.


Heat a pan and add butter, ginger, garlic and (1 Tbsp) minced lemongrass and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the ground turkey and break up the meat into small clumps. Stir-fry until the turkey is just cooked through, about 3 minutes. Make a well in the center of the ground turkey. Add the eggs and stir-fry until just set into large curds, about 2 minutes. Add the pre-cooked rice (tip: best to use leftover cold rice or make ahead) and stir-fry until heated through and the grains are separated, about 3 minutes. Add the soy sauce and stir-fry until absorbed, about 2 minutes. Stir in the sesame oil and transfer to bowls. Garnish with scallions and mint. Adapted and altered from Angelo Sosa's recipe (which I thought used way too much soy sauce and way too little ground turkey - not to mention vegetable oil - eek)
