This dish is possibly the EASIEST thing to meal prep.  I don’t know why I haven’t done this sooner.  I used to think meal prepping was pointless since I worked from home, but just meal prepping this lunch has been a GAME CHANGER and I want to share it with you.  The no dishes at lunch time just cuts my time in half do either play with the kids or get some work done.   I doubled this batch for both my husband and I.  Enough for 4 days.

(MAKES 4-5 SERVINGS)

so double this if you want to make for your partner or kids too. Its delicious turkey.  Oaks loves it.

FOR MEAT

 

FOR SAUCE

-1/4 cup Honey 

-1/2 tbsp Sesame oil

-3 tbsp Liquid Aminos

 

SIDES & TOPPINGS 

-1 cup Dry Quinoa

-1/2 cup chopped green onions

-2 cups steamed broccoli 

Cholula Sauce & everything but the bagel seasoning  

DIRECTIONS

  • Cook quinoa according to package. I use the Aroma Pot.  Add 1 cup dry mix then 2 cups water and hit the quinoa button and it’ll beep when done.  If you don’t have one you can use a saucepan and cook over the stove the same way.  Just cover it.  I also steam my broccoli on the tray on top, if you don’t have it then the other option is to boil your broccoli, or you can sautee it with a little oil and cook for about 20  minutes over stove top.
  • Heat up olive oil over pan over medium heat.  Then add garlic and sautee for about 2 minutes.  Then add your ground turkey and cook until done.  About 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile add honey, sesame oil and aminos to a small bowl.  Once ground turkey is cooked through, add in the sauce mixture and let simmer for a couple minutes.
  • Remove from heat and place in container.
  • Chop up your green onions.
  • Get a 1/2 cup out and scoop up 1/2 cup ground turkey mixture and place in the MEAL PREP CONTAINER.  These are reusable and I highly recommend them.  If not, I love these glass containers and you can just add all the ground turkey in them.
  • Scoop 1/2 cup of quinoa in meal prep container. 
  • Add green onions to top of turkey.
  • Place enough to fill the cup with your broccoli.

Then when you go to heat it up, add in the bagel seasoning and cholulua sauce over the quinoa and broccoli.  I also like to scoop the quinoa over into the ground turkey when I go to eat it.

HOT TIP: plan on using 2 pans for each serving.  If you double it of course.  It took me about 2 hours total to do all of this.  One mess and done!  So nice to have your meals ready for the week.  It sets you up for a good healthy week.  I feel like it gives me momentum to make healthier choices too.
