  • lb turkey (700g) small pieces/shredded
  • 4 cups cold brown rice (760g)
  • ½ cup garden peas (73g)
  • 1 cup mixed bell peppers (150g)
  • 1 tablespoon all purpose seasoning see notes for link
  • ½ tablespoon fresh ginger minced
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 tablespoon coconut aminos or organic soy(a) (40g)
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil (40g)
  • 2 teaspoon thyme dried or fresh (stems removed)
  • ½ tablespoon parsley
  • cup dried cranberries (40g) optional
  • black pepper and pink salt to taste


  • On medium heat, add some olive oil to your skillet/wok.
  • Add your onion, garlic and ginger then proceed to saute until translucent/soft.
  • Add your turkey then sprinkle in your seasoning (all purpose, parley and thyme) and stir
  • Next add your vegetables - garden peas, mixed peppers etc... continuing to stir and combine with the other ingredients.
  • Fold in the rice and cranberries if including then add your soy(a) sauce
  • Add salt and black pepper to taste/ adjust seasoning further if required.


  • If you don't want to use Brown Rice, feel free to use Cauliflower Rice, wild rice or quinoa. These choices are high nutritious.
  • Use whatever leftover vegetables you want - my veggies are just a rough guide. This is a freestyle type of recipe so you can pretty much tailor it to your needs
  • Use organic soy(a) or coconut aminos for a soy alternative.
  • Make sure the rice is cooked and completely cold in advance, preferably refrigerated
  • Cranberries are optional, if you don't care for fruit in your rice just leave it out.
  • I'm using All Purpose Seasoning but use chicken seasoning or any other type of seasoning that you have to hand, remember we are improvising.
  • Feel free to freeze any leftovers.
