There aren’t many times when my SO has heard of food that I have never heard of, I mean outside of the weird formal names for monkey brains and such. One common food that I had never, well, I don’t want to say never because I probably had heard of it before, but a food that I had never really paid attention to before was ground turkey.
Turkey is probably my least favorite meat ever. It takes so much to get some flavor in it. I find this especially true with ground turkey. My SO and I have been together for a bit over 2 years now. The amount of ground turkey I’ve seen him consumer is amazing to me. He absolutely loves it! I just let him eat what he wants when he wants ground turkey because it seems I can never get it to taste good to me… that was until THIS dish!
This ground turkey and Chinese green bean stir fry is quick, simple, and flavorful! It even got me, miss GT (seriously, that’s what he calls it. “Baby, I need more GT.” Doofus <3) hater, to really enjoy some ground turkey.
Give it a try! It’s healthy and easy and quick and TASTY! You really can’t beat it.

Even though I am generally not a fan of ground turkey, I am always on the lookout for recipes that include it. I try to find ones that both he and I will like. This one was a huge success! We hope you enjoy it, too!
