Greek Turkey and Rice Skillet

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 large (43g) shallot (minced)

  • 1 pound (454g) 93% lean ground turkey

  • 2 cloves (6g) garlic (minced)

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1⁄3 cup (24g) “Mezzetta” sun-ripened dried tomatoes (chopped)

  • 1 cup (192g) “Uncle Ben’s” uncooked whole grain brown rice 

  • 2 1/4 cups (561g) chicken broth

  • 2.5 ounces (70g) fresh baby spinach

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest (about 1 medium lemon)

  • ¼ cup (61g) fresh lemon juice 

Instructions:

  1. In a large, deep skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the shallot and saute for 2 minutes, or until soft. Add the ground turkey, garlic, salt, pepper, and dried oregano. Cook until the turkey is browned, but not cooked through, about 3 minutes.

  2. Stir in the sun-dried tomatoes, brown rice, and chicken broth. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover the skillet with a lid and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook for 20 minutes, or until the rice is tender. 

  3. Remove the lid and stir in the baby spinach, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the spinach is wilted. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Serve immediately. 

Notes:

  1. Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

  2. Follow package directions for the brand of rice used. Depending on the brand, the rice may need to cook for an additional 10-20 minutes. 

  3. To make this skillet vegan, replace the ground turkey with canned chickpeas or crumbled tofu and use vegetable broth. Macros will vary.

  4. If not dairy-free, option to add a sprinkle of feta cheese before serving (macros not included).
