Green bean season is right around the corner and I am pretty thrilled! Of course, they are great on their own, stewed with tomatoes or roasted with bacon, but today I’ve decided to add them to a quick and easy 20-minute stir-fry recipe with ground turkey. Not a turkey fan? Try my Chicken and Green Bean Stir-Fry recipe instead.

Ground turkey probably isn’t the first type of meat you think of when making a stir-fry but I’d like to suggest you give it a try. Spicy chili-garlic paste is combined with sweet hoisin, fresh ginger and plenty of garlic to create a delicious and healthy dinner unlike any other.

Of course, if you don’t have ground turkey you can easily swap in chicken, shrimp or tofu. No green beans? Try broccoli, peas, cauliflower or zucchini. Let your farm stand be your guide.

The best part? It makes fabulous leftovers and actually tastes even better the next day! Serve with brown rice and dinner is done in under 20 minutes.

Boom.

Your fork is waiting.

Ingredients
 

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat a large wok or deep pan over high heat and spray with non-stick spray.
  • Add ground turkey, garlic and ginger.
  • Using a potato masher or wooden spoon, break down the turkey and cook until browned. (Don’t be afraid of color! Brown = flavor. Move away from the pan for a minute – it’s ok, really!)
  • In a small bowl, whisk together chicken broth, corn starch, soy, hoisin, rice vinegar and chili garlic paste; set aside.
  • Once turkey is browned and bits and pieces are sticking to the pan, add in green beans and broth/soy mixture.
  • Saute 3-4 minutes then add water chestnuts and sesame oil.
  • Cook an additional minute or two then serve. Great with brown rice.

Notes

Excellent source of Vitamin C
To keep Gluten Free replace soy sauce with Tamari.

    This looks great and I’m excited to make it but it is NOT gluten free. Soy sauce contains wheat. The recipe would need to be made with gluten free sauces in order to be gluten free. You might want remove the gluten free part.

      Kristen, you can also buy gluten free soy sauce. Most people with gluten indolence know this and have it in their fridge. :)

    WOW-ran across your green beans and ground turkey recipe by mistake. We started the Unhealthy Anonymous program were looking for some good alternate recipes and WOW. We loved it.

    I only had a 1/2 up of green beans so I added in a cup of spinach and it was delicious.

    THANK YOU!!!

    What a fantastic recipe! My husband halved the amount of chili garlic sauce, and my 3 year old daughter ate her entire plate. If it were just hubby and me, we would definitely use the whole amount of chili garlic sauce called for. Will make again!!
