Healthy Korean Turkey Meal Prep


1 tablespoon olive oil

3/4 cup uncooked rice

1 head broccoli chopped into florets

Turkey Mix 

3/4 lb lean ground turkey

4 cloves garlic minced

1 tablespoon ginger finely chopped

Sauce Mix 

3 tablespoons honey

3 tablespoons soy sauce (reduced sodium)

1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/8 teaspoon pepper


green onions (optional)


Cook rice according to package directions. Portion out into four 2-cup capacity meal prep containers and allow to cool.

Shake up all sauce ingredients and set aside.

Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the broccoli and cook for 5 or so minutes, until slightly softened. Remove from heat and divide between meal prep containers.

Add turkey to pan. Cook, breaking it up with a spatula, for 5-8 minutes, until completely cooked through and no longer pink.

Make a space in the middle of the pan. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute, stirring up a bit.

Give the sauce a shake up and pour over the ground turkey and garlic/ginger. Stir until everything is mixed through, about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat.

Divide turkey/sauce mixture between the meal prep containers. Sprinkle with green onions if desired.


Once everything has cooled, store in the fridge for up to 4 days.

To serve

Heat in the microwave until steaming hot, and enjoy!
