You're going to love this. 🙂
You know how we're working really hard to eat healthier this year? Well, we stumbled upon this recipe and have added it to our rotation because EVERYONE loves it (and you know that doesn't happen . . . like EVER!)
Here's how to get started:
First, mix all the sauces in a bowl and set that aside for later.
Next pop those mushrooms into a food processor. (I use this one.) Now . . . my kids are not really mushroom fans at all but these chop up so small that they won't even know they're in there. And, adding in the mushrooms will REALLY help you stretch that budget leaving lots of leftovers.
Do the same with the bell pepper and cucumbers. Oodles of veggies in one meal and the kids have no idea. Success!
Put all the veggies in a bowl to add in later.
Now, heat up sesame oil in a skillet until hot, and add the grated ginger until fragrant (yum!)
Next add the turkey (or pork, or chicken) until brown and then add all the vegetables until combined. Once you have that all mixed in add the sauce and let simmer for about 2 mins.
Load up those lettuce leaves, top with sriracha and/or hoisin and enjoy . . . you're welcome! 🙂
