Fantastic! Glad you liked it!
Yup, exactly. Just portion it out into whatever individual portions you want and stick it in the freezer, pineapple and all.
Try mixing 1/2 white and 1/2 brown rice. It’s a good middle ground and gives you a little extra nutrition. Enjoy!
About that much, yes. And about 1/2 – 3/4 cups juice, depending on the can.
Awesome! Glad you enjoyed it!
Awesome! So glad you enjoyed it!
do yo think I could use whole turkey (thanksgiving leftovers) instead of ground turkey?
You can try it. It would definitely come out different, but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be good.
In a pot or in the microwave. However you usually heat things up.
If you are new to clean eating, it will take a while for your taste buds to adjust. I’d be willing to bet that if you eat clean for about 2 months and then try this recipe again, you’ll enjoy it far more. As our palate adjusts, we start to notice more subtle flavors and we don’t need as much spice or salt. Give it time. And welcome to my blog!
I made this and my turkey looked really mushy. It still tasted good but the juice didn’t cook into my turkey. Next time I will probably just leave out the juice from the ground turkey
Jamie – what do you mean by “juice from the ground turkey”?
How would you recommend freezing and reheating this? I would like to make this as a freezer meal for when baby arrives but I’m not sure how.
Lauren – You can just make it and freeze it in portioned sizes. It should freeze pretty well.
We loved this recipe! I doubled it but was a bit uncertain about the cooking time. How long do you cook the turkey with the spices and juice? Thanks!
Niessa – I just cooked it until the meat was cooked through. If you double the recipe, it will take longer. I’m going to guess between 20 and 30 minutes, but it could be a little longer too.
So the carrots and zucchini are never cooked? Just checking to make sure I didn’t miss something.
akraft – Correct! 🙂
It really was my favorite at all. I had to use salt to try to make it more eatable and I usually don’t use salt. Maybe these flavors just aren’t for me but I wasn’t a fan. It seems like it needs a bit of some sauce or something.
Lacey – I’m so sorry you didn’t care for it.
Delicious! I used a bag of cauliflower rice instead of the brown rice. Once the turkey was done, I poured the liquid from the pan over the cauliflower rice so that it could soak up the flavor, then I mixed everything together. This is a keeper! Thank you!
Conyers – I’m so happy you enjoyed it! 🙂
