Ground Turkey Fried Rice is an easy and healthy dinner for two. This protein filled fried rice is made with brown rice, veggies and turkey.
This fried rice is one of my favorite weeknight meals. It takes minutes to throw together, it's very customizable based on what you have in your fridge and it's so flavorful! Obviously, this isn't a traditional fried rice recipe. This is my version which has some different ingredients like brown rice and tahini.
