About this Recipe

I love the combined sweetness and saltiness of a good peanut sauce and turkey.


1 cup leftover turkey, sliced and de-boned
2 cups cooked white rice
2/3 cup red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
2 tbsp lite soy sauce
2 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp minced ginger
1/4 cup warm water
1 tsp sesame oil
2 tbsp crushed peanuts (optional)


Prepare rice as per package directions (typically 1 cup of uncooked rice will yield two cups of cooked rice).
Meanwhile, in a medium bow, whisk together peanut butter, soy sauce, sugar, ginger, water, and sesame oil until smooth.
In a microwave safe container, heat turkey for 40 seconds on high.
Divide the rice between two plates (1 cup of rice per plate). Top with half of the turkey (1/2 cup), peppers (1/3 cup), and half of the peanut sauce.
Microwave for another 40-50 seconds until dish is warm throughout.
Top with optional crushed peanuts if desired.
Enjoy warm!


You can prepare this sauce in advance, as it keeps well in the fridge.
