Ground turkey gets a bad wrap. People think it’s so basic, boring and bland. But it’s not! Ground turkey is so versatile. Great in soups, chili, as meatloaf and really good as a grilled burger. The key is to not let it get dried out. Adding some great flavors like soy sauce, ginger, and cilantro help.
And it’s a great summer meal when you have easy prep, can head outside to grill and enjoy that dinner outside. You barely get your kitchen dirty and I consider that a huge bonus. I served this with a zucchini “pasta” salad that is coming later this week. This was the ultimate summer meal, grilled meats, fresh vegetables from the garden turned into an awesome pasta salad. I love summer eating!
