We have to face it. College students do not exactly have hours of time on their hands. While some may disagree, the reality of the situation is that it is hard to plan meals that are healthy throughout the week. That is why this healthy recipe is sure to help you stock up on meals for lunch and dinner when you do not have the time.
Materials and Ingredients:
2.) While the meat is cooking, heat up your rice and vegetables in the microwave. I usually purchase the rice and the steam fresh bag of vegetables from Wal-Mart. They can be found in the freezer section. I believe they are about $1.50 each. The vegetables should take six minutes to cook, and the rice should take about four minutes to cook.
3.) While your rice and your vegetables are cooking, be sure to keep an eye on the turkey meat. Take a spoon and break the meat apart like you would if you were cooking normal ground beef.
4.) Once the meat is completely cooked, and the vegetables are too, bring the heat down to low on your stovetop. Carefully (it will be hot) add the rice into the pan with the ground turkey meat. Stir until the contents are blended together. Then, carefully add the Asian medley vegetables to the pan as well.
5.) Once all of the ingredients are mixed together, turn your stove top off. What is great about this recipe is how much it makes. I will usually portion off the contents into three different Tupperware containers. You can add as much soy sauce as you would like to each when you go to eat. I recommend waiting to add the soy sauce until then because the taste will wear off. If eating the same meal three times a week does not suit you, consider not adding the soy sauce and enjoying the recipe plain with salt and pepper. It is just as good and just as healthy. Keep in mind that making different sides with each portion will change the meal, too.
