Tasty Tsao

Last week I went to TJ's and tried a very tasty sample at their demo window. It was ground turkey, TJ's General Tsao's Stir Fry Sauce, and TJ's Harvest Grains blend. Boy was it tasty. Tasty enough for me to buy the sauce and the grains blend. Now let me tell you about this blend. It has couscous, orzo, baby garbanzo beans AND red quinoa! Hows that for grains? And only 3 points for half a cup! So I waited all weekend just excited as can be to try out my new items. I had to pick a night that Joseph wasn't home because he doesn't care too much for stir fry so I waited until he started up a new class he's taking for work.

It worked out perfectly! I chopped up some veggies (cremini mushrooms, broccoli and carrots), browned the ground turkey, steamed the veggies with the turkey, poured on the sauce and waited for the magic to happen! Five minutes later and I had a healthy, tasty meal! I served it with a side of the grains blend and mixed it up on my plate. I cannot wait to have this tasty meal again. It's not a 30 minute wonder... it's a 15 minute wonder!

Turkey Stir Fry

  • 8 oz ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup broccoli
  • 1/2 cup carrots
  • 1/4 cup cremini mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup General Tsao's Stir Fry Sauce
  • 1/4 cup Harvest Grains Blend
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • salt and pepper to taste for turkey
  • cooking spray

Bring chicken stock to a boil and add grains. Bring back to a boil, reduce heat and cover for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat pan on medium and spray with cooking spray (I used olive oil spray). When pan has heated add ground turkey and cook until lightly browned. Add veggies and cover for three minutes until veggies are cooked 1/2 way. Add sauce and stir. Cover again for 3 more minutes or until veggies are fully cooked.

Serve stir-fry over grain blend and enjoy!

Serves 2

6 WW points per serving (includes grains!)
