Wild Game Wednesday: Wild Turkey Stir Fry

Welcome to the first edition of
Wild Game Wednesday!

Since my husband is such an avid
hunter & fisherman,
we live throughout the year on
venison, turkey, dove, & fish
(& whatever else he drags in).

It’s so nice to always have meat
in the freezer that I know hasn’t been
processed & pumped full of hormones.

It’s also a huge money saver.
{Seriously, I’ve only bought ground beef once
in the almost 4 years that we have been married!!}

Tonight I pulled some turkey out of the freezer
from back in the spring
& grabbed the veggies I had laying around
to throw together a quick stir fry.

I love a quick & healthy meal
so I thought I would share the recipe with you:

Coconut Rice

1 cup Jasmine rice
1 can coconut milk
1 tbsp butter

Add all ingredients to saucepan
bring to boil
turn down to low & simmer until rice is soft & milk absorbed (about 15 min).

Wild Turkey Stir Fry

2 tbsp olive oil
2 pounds turkey breast (cut into 1/2 inch pieces)
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
1 cup carrots (sliced/diced)
1 cup squash (sliced)
2 cups spinach
1/2 cup onion (diced)
(You can use whatever veggies you have on hand)

In a large skillet heat the oil & soy sauce over medium heat
Cook the turkey for 4-5 minutes, until lightly browned
Drain any excess liquid
Add veggies and cook additional 5 minutes, until tender
Stir in garlic powder
Serve over coconut rice & enjoy!!

    Now that is such an awesome feat! Not to have to buy meat almost at all. Not too many close avid hunters in my family, like my husband..not at all, but several that go nuts for it in the extended fam. My daughter’s godfather managed to snag a turkey last thanksgiving. So that was extra festive!

      Coconut rice is super easy, it’s one of my go-to sides. Sometimes I add avocado chunks, salt, pepper, and a tiny sprinkle of lemon juice if I’m having a bowl just for myself (the husband needs meat haha!) The plates are from Belk a few years ago.
