  • ¾ cup (12 tablespoons) of dry Uncle Ben’s Rice
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 teaspoon (tsp) Lemon Grass Paste
  • 1 tablespoon (Tbsp) Ginger Paste
  • 6 tablespoons (Tbsp) Bragg’s Aminos, divided
  • 5 ½ ounces (156 grams) of white onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon (Tbsp) Sesame oil
  • ½ head of garlic, smashed
  • 1 Jalapeño pepper with seeds, thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces (113 grams) of mushrooms, sliced
  • 6 ounces (170 grams) Bell Peppers, sliced
  • 2 Teaspoons (tsp) of Sesame seeds for garnish
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced for garnish
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Rice Directions

  • Place 2 cups of water in the pan
  • Place ¾ cup, 12 tablespoons, dry Uncle Ben’s rice in the pan
  • Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally
  • When rice is boiling, bring to a simmer and cook covered.
  • After 20 minutes, turn off the heat.
  • Fluff rice before serving.

Turkey Mix Directions

  • Thinly slice the jalapeño pepper, keep the seeds. Reserve a few slices for garnish.
  • Thinly slice the onion. 
  • Crush the garlic cloves (do not mince)
  • In a small bowl, whisk the ginger, lemon grass and 2 tablespoons of Aminos together.
  • Pour the mixture over the ground turkey, and work with a spoon to mix the Amino mixture into the turkey. Set aside.
  • Heat one tablespoon of sesame oil over high heat.
  • Cook the onion for about four minutes. Then add the garlic, jalapeños, and bell pepper, saving some raw jalapeño for garnish.
  • Cook until veggies soften.
  • Add the mushrooms.
  • Cook until mushrooms soften.
  • When the vegetables are nicely caramelized, add the raw turkey and cook several minutes until done. 
  • It is important to mix the turkey within the vegetables and to break up the meat into small pieces, so it cooks evenly.
  • You should not need to add salt and pepper, since the Aminos have sodium.


  • Fill two plates with rice
  • Place turkey/vegetables mixture on top of the rice
  • Garnish with green onion, sesame seeds and remaining jalapeños.
  • Serve with remaining Aminos on the table for garnish
