Szechuan Green Beans & Ground Turkey

Szechuan Green Beans and Ground Turkey
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 3 garlic cloves – grated
  • 2 tbs ginger – grated
  • 1 lb green beans – trimmed
  • ½ c chicken broth
  • 1 tbs corn starch
  • 3 tbs soy sauce – low sodium
  • 1 tbs hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbs rice vinegar
  • ½ tbs chili garlic paste (more or less to taste)
  • 8 oz water chestnuts – sliced
  • ½ tbs sesame oil
  1. Pre-heat a large wok or deep pan over high heat and spray with non-stick spray.
  2. Add ground turkey, garlic and ginger.
  3. Using a potato masher or wooden spoon, break down the turkey and cook until browned. (Don’t be afraid of color! Brown = flavor. Move away from the pan for a minute – it’s ok, really!)
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together chicken broth, corn starch, soy, hoisin, rice vinegar and chili garlic paste; set aside.
  5. Once turkey is browned and bits and pieces are sticking to the pan, add in green beans and broth/soy mixture.
  6. Saute 3-4 minutes then add water chestnuts and sesame oil.
  7. Cook an additional minute or two then serve. Great with cauliflower 'rice'.
