Turkey Fried Rice

Mmmmm.... fried rice.

Everyone in our house loves fried rice but we know that it is not always good for us. I found this recipe last May and finally gave it a whirl.

Please make sure that you look for the lower fat ground turkey (93/7) not just any ground turkey.

This was one big hit! Tasty and oh.so.easy to create. I was told that I could make it again and again - so I would say that it was a hit. :D

  • I used Jasmine rice due to it having a bit less of carbs than white rice.(recipe does not reflect this change)
  • I omitted the bean sprouts due to them not being liked in this house. :)
  • I added about another 3 TBSP of soy sauce when cooking.
  • Look for the 93/7 lean ground turkey will reduce the calories.
