It’s time I finally share one of my favorite easy weeknight meals with you: this Healthy Asian Turkey Stir Fry!
This is something I’ve been making for years, and finally took the time to write out a post with an official recipe to share with you!
I love this recipe for a few reasons:
- it’s veggie loaded
- it’s easy to make
- it’s done in under 30 minutes
- it’s paleo/whole30
- it tastes really, really good.
Once you try it, you’re gonna love it too! It’s the epitome of simple weeknight dinners – which is what I’m ALL about. Let’s get into the details of just how simple it is to make, shall we?
The star of the show here is this Trader Joe’s Healthy 8 Chopped Veggie Mix, which is seriously one of my favorite things to buy from TJ’s! (You can check out The Best Whole30 Trader Joe’s Shopping List to see some of my other favorite things to get there too!)
The mix is a combo of broccoli, carrots, cabbage, jicama, peppers, radish and celery – and while I would’ve never thought to pair those things together on their own – they’re seriously delicious! You’ll need a few other things like coconut aminos, and spices.
