15-Minute Teriyaki Turkey Bowls

The following recipe and photography were provided by local blogger Carolyn Hodges of The Dinner Shift.

With virtually zero prep necessary, this quick and healthy family friendly recipe is made for weeknight cooking. A few handy shortcut ingredients, including Two Brothers teriyaki sauce and Heinen’s cooked brown rice, will help you get this meal on the table in 15 minutes or less.

I always have a bag or two of Heinen’s frozen peas and carrots in our freezer for quick stir-fries and fried rice. You could easily swap in any combination of frozen vegetables, including riced cauliflower, shelled edamame or stir fry blend. While this version calls for ground turkey, it works with ground chicken, beef or pork, too. If using ground beef or pork, I suggest draining off the fat after browning and before adding the seasonings.
