Here’s another of my famous recipes, where I force myself into creating a delicious and healthy meal using only ingredients we have on hand. Today pasture raised ground turkey, frozen green beans, and fresh spring garden scallions, is the assortment I’m working with.
And of course that combo is just begging for a Chinese/Asian twist, right?!?
My Spicy Chinese Green Beans with Ground Turkey, is a quick and easy meal that comes together in just a few minutes. To keep it low in carbs & paleo friendly serve it with cauli-rice, but rice works too if you can tolerate it.
While I call this recipe “spicy” its not HOT, it’s more of a medium heat. If you want it spicier feel free to add a few pinches of crushed red pepper.
Let’s not forget, to ALWAYS choose the highest quality meats. Opting for Pasture meats is not only good for your health but also for the healthy of our environment.
It’s also pretty freaking amazing to support our hardworking small-scale, local farmers who are raising food with love and compassion, right??
Oh yeah, I put together a quick video for you… showing you how super easy this recipe is! Now there’s no reason not to try it!
