Wild Game Wednesday: Wild Turkey Stir Fry

Caitlin EthridgeWelcome 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 and fish (and whatever else he drags in). It's so nice to always have meat in the freezer that I know hasn't been processed and pumped full of hormones.

It's also a huge money saver. (Seriously, I've only bought ground beef once in the almost four years that we have been married!)

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

Delicious wild turkey stir fry.

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

Coconut Rice

1 cup Jasmine rice
1 can coconut milk
1 tablespoon butter

Add all ingredients to saucepan bring to boil. Turn down to low and simmer until rice is soft and milk absorbed (about 15 minutes).

Wild Turkey Stir Fry

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

In a large skillet heat the oil and soy sauce over medium heat. Cook the turkey for 4 to 5 minutes, until lightly browned. Drain any excess liquid.

Add veggies and cook an additional 5 minutes, until tender. Stir in garlic powder.

Serve over coconut rice and enjoy!
