  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 bell pepper diced
  • 1/2 cup carrots shredded
  • ¼ cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 2 cups cooked rice for serving
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • green onions diced, for garnish


  • In a large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat and add ground turkey to the pan. Cook until meat starts to brown and is crumbled.
  • Add in the diced onion, garlic, carrots, and peppers and cook until turkey is well browned and the vegetables are soft, about 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the sea salt, ginger, teriyaki sauce, and coconut aminos and mix well.
  • Add cooked rice to each bowl while still warm. Top each bowl with the teriyaki turkey mixture over the rice and garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.


  • To save time use pre-shredded carrots, frozen chopped onions, and use a vegetable chopper for your peppers.
  • If you like your bell peppers with a bit of crunch, add them towards the end of the turkey cooking time.
  • If you’re cooking the rice traditionally, remember to start this process first as it tends to take the longest. However, instant rice or pre-cooked microwaveable rice are great time-savers.
