Ground Turkey and Green Bean Rice Bowl

We had some fresh green beans from Sprouts, and some ground turkey thawed out, so I decided to try out a ground turkey and green bean teriyaki bowl. It was delicious!! The green beans were so green, and not being from a can, they still had some bite to them. Good thing there were leftovers, because this will definitely be eaten again.

Ground Turkey and Green Bean Teriyaki Rice Bowl

  • 1 - 16 oz package of 93/7 ground turkey
  • 1.5 pounds of green beans
  • Whatever sauce you want to use (don't drown it!)
  • White rice, brown rice, quinoa, whatever fits your fancy.
Make it!:
  1. Start cooking your rice. This will take the longest amount of time.
  2. Cut ends off of green beans. I also cut mine in half again so they would be easier to handle / eat. Rinse them. Put them in boiling water for 3-5 minutes. At the end of that time, put them in ice water to stop the cooking and keep them crisp. (I poured them into a colander to drain the boiling water, then put that colander in a large bowl of ice water.)
  3. Brown the ground turkey in a large skillet.
  4. Combine the ground turkey and green beans. Pour a little sauce over everything and toss.
  5. Serve over rice!
