General Tso’s Ground Turkey Fried Cauli Rice

Dive into this delish, healthified twist on beef fried rice. Switching up the beef for some ground turkey and subbing the white rice for cauliflower rice lightens it up but still packs a lot of flavor. Especially all covered in a low cal General Tso’s sauce. YUMMMYYY!

So one of my boyfriend’s favorite thing ever is beef fried rice. It’s his go to order whenever we get Chinese food and I have to agree, its dang good! As delicious as it is, I know there happens to be quite a few calories packed into that carb overload, grease stained, sodium oozing dish. So why not discover something similar that takes some of that edge off!

This dish is full of flavor! One major reason why is the General Tso’s sauce drizzled on top. Found by happy accident, this sauce is an Aldi specialty and truly has added so much to this and many of my recipes! Look for it at your local Aldi. You wont regret it! But FYI you do not have to add it to this dish and it is still delish!

What You Will Need in Your Korner:

  • 1/2lb Ground Turkey
  • 1/3 of an Onion diced — white or red, depending on preference
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 bag or 16 oz Riced Cauliflower — I used the frozen bag from Aldi
  • 1 bag frozen mix veggies — you can also go fresh, just gather up some green beans, corn, carrots, broccoli, etc.
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup Soy Sauce — use less or more depending on how strong you like that flavor
  • General Tso’s Sauce for topping

Directions:

In a medium size saucepan, combine ground turkey, diced onion, and minced garlic. Cook on medium high heat until the turkey is cooked through completely (light brown in color all the way through) and the onions will be transparent looking. Spoon cooked meat, onion, and garlic onto a large plate covered with two paper towels to soak up extra grease and dispose of any extra grease in the pan.

Leaving the stove on a medium high setting, add frozen cauliflower rice and mixed veggies. The little bit of grease left from cooking the meat should work against anything sticking to the pan, if not, you can always add a tsp of your choice of oil to help with that. Saute the rice and veggies until cooked and soft. Stir in soy sauce. Push the whole mixture to one half of the pan and crack egg. Let it cook on one side for a few minutes and then mix well through the entire mixture – you have fried rice now! Toss the meat mixture back into the pan and combine everything – add more soy sauce to taste if you’d like. Serve warm.

LASTLY, if you’d like, and I highly recommend, top with a nice solid pour of Aldi’s General Tso’s Sauce and enjoy this tasty, yet healthy, twist on beef fried rice 😉 Thanks for stopping by the Korner.

You can always use fresh produce as well but this makes it so easy!!!!
