The delicious, sweet teriyaki sauce and the semi-hidden veggies in this Teriyaki Turkey Rice Bowl makes this a healthy dish your whole family will love!
I love Asian inspired dishes, and Teriyaki is a family favorite. The sweet and savory richness of the sauce really compliment the flavors of the meat. You can pair this with steamed rice or noodles, or even in a Lettuce Wrap.
My kids are not fans of vegetables. Well, quite frankly that is an understatement. They hate them. So I have had to get clever with how I add veggies to our meals. For this particular dish, I grated a few carrots and chopped several stalks of broccoli very fine, and tossed them in with the meat as it was cooking.
Once the sauce is added, the veggies blend in nicely. I’m happy. My kids are happy. It’s a win-win!
My kids loved this dish, asking for seconds and if they could take it for lunch the next day in their thermoses. I’d call that a success.
