Nameless recipe #2

Today I have another recipe for you!

This one is not vegetarian, sorry. I used turkey meat and loads of veggies, so you can take the meat out and have a vegetarian recipe!! Not so bad, huh?

So let’s see what I was up to in my kitchen:


  • 2 cups of rice (you can use cups, mugs, glasses, whatever, as long as you have the same measure);
  • 400 g of turkey (we call it turkey steak here, but it’s more of a turkey meat cut really thin);
  • Green beans (I used about 200 g);
  • Brussels sprouts (about 200 g);
  • Mediterranean vegetable mix to saute (I buy these “themed” mixes sometimes. There’s Mediterranean, oriental, etc. and I used half a bag so about 200 g);
  • Peas (about 100 g);
  • A medium onion;
  • Tomato pulp (made only with tomatoes, no sugar or anything like that);
  • Garlic powder;
  • Olive oil;
  • Salt and pepper or whatever herbs you feel like using;

*You can use whatever veggies you have on hand, frozen or fresh. I used just frozen this time because that’s what I had;

** The quantities can vary as well, you can put more peas than green beans, if you prefer them. There’s no rule here, as long as you load on the veggies;


The rice – this time I made just plain garlic rice, but I could have made it with spinach, carrots and peas, green beans, any veggies at all, really!

  1. Get a drizzle of olive oil and some garlic powder in a pot/pan (whatever you use);
  2. Once the olive oil is hot, add two cups of rice and let them “fry”;
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste;
  4. Add 4 cups of hot water (the same measure you used for the rice);
  5. Let it boil until the rice is almost dry;

The meat and vegetables:

  1. Add some olive oil (enough to saute the turkey), a medium chopped onion and garlic powder to a wok or pan (I use a wok):


2. Wait until the onion is cooked (yellow) and add the turkey meat:


3. Stir with a spoon (I use wooden spoons) so the turkey can cook thoroughly (you let it get white) and then add the veggies:


4. Add some salt, pepper and your herbs of choice, stir everything together and add the tomato pulp:


And it’s done!!

I served it with a tomato, onion and sweet corn salad:


It was really good!!


P.S. I’ve just realized I’m not good at giving recipe instructions. They sound like they’re not going to help anybody. Fell free to ask any questions.

You also now I suck at taking photos and don’t even bother to edit them. So sorry, need to work on that!

Hope you like it.

    This looks very tempting! I usually use one part rice to two parts water (ie. if one cup of rice then two cups of water). Have you used the same for each? I can never get it quite right so the rice is either too dry or too soggy and disintegrating! x
