Have you ever wondered what to do with turkey mince to make it a bit more exciting? Are you looking for a low calorie meal that is full of goodness, is suitable for the whole family and is friendly on the purse stings? Do you look for meals that take next to no time to make?
If your answer is yes to any of these, then you are going to love my cajun Turkey and Rice recipe that will feed a family of three-four for approximately £3.65 (based on prices at Aldi) and is under 400 calories a portion!
I’m a huge fan of food that is quick, easy, healthy (most of the time) and doesn’t have a ridiculously long list of ingredients so this is one of my go-to meals after a long day at work. Hopefully you will love this quick and easy recipe just as much as I do!
Fry Light (5-10 sprays)
250g Turkey Mince (buy the 500g pack and you can freeze the other half)
1 large Red Onion
2 Bell Peppers (whichever colours you fancy, red, green, yellow, orange)
1 small can of Sweetcorn
150g Petit Pois (or garden peas, I just prefer the sweetness of Petit Pois)
1 packet Rice
20g Cajun Seasoning
- Chop up the onions and peppers into small bite size chunks, weigh out the other ingredients (or you can guesstimate if you aren’t calorie counting).
- Spray a large frying pan with fry light and fry off the mince and onions until the onions soften and the mince is almost cooked through, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.
- Add the peppers and peas (if frozen), cook until the peppers begin to soften.
- Add the sweetcorn and the cajun season and stir through.
- Add the rice, breaking this up and stirring through the vegetable and turkey mix.
- Heat for approx a further 5 minutes until the rice is thoroughly heated (to speed this process up you can microwave the packet rice first).
- Serve up into bowls and enjoy!
See how easy it is? One pan, throw it all in and away you go … so hardly any dishes to wash after too! The whole process should take no more than 30 minutes from start to finish. You can adjust the amount of cajun seasoning you add, you can change the vegetables you put in. Be creative, experiment, and be sure to let me know if you enjoyed this!
