Turkey Fried Rice


I love a good fried rice recipe.  It is a great way to use up leftover rice.  I have shared a chicken and ham version before.  This is a turkey version that I found in my recent issue of Simple and Delicious.  It uses ground turkey.  I loved it except for the crunchy peanut butter.  I didn’t appreciate the peanut bits and didn’t feel the bits really contributed to the dish.  So the recipe below includes my change to creamy peanut butter.  It was a dish loved by all.  Another thing that I love about this recipe is it calls for bean sprouts.  I LOVE bean sprouts!

Turkey Fried Rice

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 pound ground turkey
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 3 cups cold cooked rice
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Pour eggs into skillet. As eggs set, lift edges, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. When eggs are completely cooked, remove to a plate; set aside.
  2. In the same skillet, cook turkey and onions over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Stir the rice, bean sprouts and cilantro. In a small bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients until blended; stir into skillet. Chop egg into small pieces; stir into skillet and heat through. Yield: 4 servings.
