Garlic and Citrus Turkey with Mixed Greens
Ground turkey is a great, high-protein, low-fat alternative to ground beef and can be used in many dishes. However, it’s often lackluster when it comes to flavor (primarily because it IS so lean) and needs to be seasoned well and cooked properly to ensure a great outcome.
This easy and delicious recipe for Garlic and Citrus Turkey is great for Lean and Green lunches, dinners and can be made as a salad or into wraps for an on-the-go version.
Serve with your favorite side dish, over Cauliflower Rice or over mixed greens. For a family recipe, you can serve this with rice, in taco shells with shredded cheese and tomatoes and more! One meal that everyone will love.
4 teaspoons Stacey Hawkins Roasted Garlic Oil (or oil of your choice and fresh chopped garlic)
1 3/4 pounds lean ground turkey
1 C scallion greens, thinly sliced
1 Tablespoon Stacey Hawkins Skinny Scampi Seasoning (or lemon, pepper, garlic, onion, parsley, salt & pepper)
8 cups mixed green lettuce
1 lemon cut into wedges for garnish
Place oil in a large skillet and heat over medium high heat.
Add 3/4 C scallions to the skillet and cook for one minute.
Add ground turkey, sprinkle with seasoning and cook for 10-12 minutes until slightly browned and thoroughly cooked. Stir occasionally and break up any large pieces.
Portion 2 cups of greens on to each plate. Top with the turkey mixture and garnish with remaining scallions and fresh lemon slices if desired. A spritz of fresh lemon over the greens and turkey combination make for a great “dressing” on the salad.
- OPTIONAL: Instead of placing the turkey on salad greens, you can also create wraps using blanched cabbage leaves, romaine leaves or green lettuce leaves. Please measure and count any additional vegetables used accordingly.
