HAPPY ONE MONTH ANNIVERSAY TO MY BLOG AND ME!

Okay, more like, happy one month and 13 days to my blog and me! Because, well, I kinda sorta might’ve forgotten it was our day to celebrate you (“you” as in my blog, obviously). And while, we haven’t been together long, it feels like I’ve known you forever.

HAHA. Just kidding you guys. I’m not THAT weird (although I’m sure John would disagree).

But seriously, I am OVER THE MOON about how much I am loving this new foodie adventure. I never thought I’d have my own little space on the internet (SO COOL!!!). And, I mean, I HOPED people would want to make my recipes but I never thought it would actually happen! It has been such an exciting experience for me thus far! Really, I am so grateful and thankful and appreciative and and and every other synonym there possibly is!

This dish is full of traditional Asian flavor and can be made in under 30 minutes! It is the perfect way to bring a little variety to your usual weeknight dinners by introducing bold ingredients that are balanced out by a touch of sweetness!

Ingredients

1 lb. ground turkey (I use extra lean)

2-3 teaspoons oil (any neutral kind works)

½ medium brown onion, diced

1 large red bell pepper, diced (about 1 & ½ cups)

3 garlic cloves, minced

4 green onions, diced

Sauce:

3 tablespoons hoisin sauce (I use Lee Kum Kee)

2 tablespoons soy sauce (reduced sodium)

1 tablespoon vegetable broth (unsalted)

1 tablespoon sweet red chili sauce (I use A Taste of Thai)

2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon sriracha (optional & to taste)

1 teaspoon cornstarch

¼ teaspoon dried ginger

¼ teaspoon black pepper

Directions

-In a small bowl, whisk the sauce ingredients together. Set aside.

-In a skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add the brown onion and red bell pepper. Sautee for 2 minutes (stirring constantly).

-Add the ground turkey. Cook until it is no longer pink. Add the garlic and green onions. Cook for an additional minute (stirring constantly so the garlic doesn’t burn).

-Lastly, add the sauce to the ground turkey mixture. Continue cooking for another 1-2 minutes.

-Serve over rice and enjoy!

Optional toppings: additional sriracha, soy sauce, limes, green onions, lettuce, etc.
