Take a good look at those crisp green onions tumbling over a mountain of steamed green beans and garlic infused turkey *insert inappropriate groans here*
Imagine wafts of fragrant ginger tickling your nose,
riding the salty waves of fish sauce….
Not only that, but they are sauteed in a luxurious creamy peanut sauce…..
Well, WAKE UP MY FRIENDS! You can have this.
*insert halfhearted and slightly confused applause here*
What you’ll need:
3 tbsp olive oil
1-2 tsp fish sauce
2 tbsp soya sauce
2 tbsp creamy peanut butter (I use Adam’s)
1 tbsp brown sugar (feel free to use maple syrup or honey too)
2 tsp lime juice
half a head of garlic, minced
2 tsp ginger, minced
2 green chilies, cut in half lengthwise
1 onion, diced
1 lb ground turkey thigh
1 lb steamed green beans (I like mine crisp, so I don’t steam them too long)
2-3 stalks of green onion chopped, garnish
- Combine soya sauce, peanut butter, brown sugar and lime juice in a small bowl and mix. Put aside.
- Heat olive oil in a wok on medium-high, add your fish sauce and let it quickly cook with the oil. Shortly after add your onions, make sure your wok is hot enough so that when you add the onions there is a big sizzle. Just don’t burn yourself!! *insert howls from the pain here* Stir fry those babies!
- After the onions have fried a bit, add the garlic, ginger and chilies. Stir, fry, stir, fry, yummmmmmmmmm. Let these ingredients really infuse the oil. NO BURN.
- Next add the minced turkey. Pierce that darn ol’ meat brick with your spoon, soldier. Pierce until it’s shredded into tiny helpless pieces and marching to your command *insert maniacal laugh here* Cook meat until browned.
- Make some space in the wok and add the peanut butter/soya sauce/sugar/lime mix that was put aside earlier. Stir it against the bottom so that it cooks, then coat everything in it. Lather that meat and those onions baby! Things were already smelling delicious, but now they’re on another level. A PEANUT BUTTER LEVEL. *insert crickets here*
- Last, but not least, add the steamed green beans and toss to mix. Garnish with green onions and voila! You can have this on rice, quinoa, noodles, however you like! How happy are you.Let’s take one more look at this divine creation:
UGHHHH TAKE ME NOW GREEN BEANS *insert dramatic faint here*
