Turkey Vegetable Medley

Ground Turkey Recipe

When looking for a healthy meal that involves a form of meat I always turn to turkey, ground turkey is cost efficient and you can substitute it in place of any ground meat to get it into a lower fat category. I learned to appreciate turkey and all its benefits as I got older, adding an abundant amount of your favourite vegetables just adds to this already healthy dish and makes sure you get all the vitamins you need for the day.
I used a wok to cook this dish as it was easier to get all the vegetables that I wanted to add, don't be shy to add as many as you like. The aroma while you cook just gets your mouth watering, you will need to make sure you position the wok properly when your ready to add the ground turkey to the pan. I also made sure to add a little hot sauce to my plate but that is optional for those the like a tad more spice.
