Turkey and Green Bean Basil Stir Fry

An easy, 5-ingredient Whole30 Dinner!
Cook: 20 minutes
Servings: 4 people

Ingredients 

  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt, or more to taste
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper, or more to taste
  • 12 ounces green beans (snipped and cleaned)
  • 1 tbsp Yellowbird Sriracha Sauce (be sure to get the one without sugar added)
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos (I like Big Tree Farm Brand)
  • 1/2 cup packed basil leaves

Instructions 

  • Heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat with avocado and toasted sesame oil. When hot, add the ground turkey, salt, and pepper and cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, until cooked through (no longer pink), 5 to 7 minutes. When cook through, set heat on low and keep warm while you prepare the green beans.
  • Meanwhile, bring a large skillet of water to a boil. Once boiling, add the green beans and cook for 3 minutes. Transfer the par-cooked green beans to a bowl of ice water to shock the green beans and lock in the green color.
  • Increase the heat in the wok back up to medium-high heat. Drain and transfer the green beans to the wok and cook, tossing often, until tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the sriracha, coconut aminos, and basil leaves and cook 2 more minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!

    Wow!!! Very impressed! I don’t usually write reviews even though I rely on them to help me pick what to make, but after making this – my god I didn’t have a choice. This was super simple and SO FLAVORFUL. The balance of warm spice to the umami was 👌🏼 This will be added to our rotation. Thank you!

    My family loved this dish! My kids never eat fresh green beans and they ate these🙌🏽! Thank you for this easy yet flavorful and quick dinner!

  3. This amazing recipe has been in steady rotation for a couple of years but I had to share last night’s tweak. Instead of blanching the green beans, I blistered them in the air fryer while browning the turkey and then added them to the stir fry. Soooo good!!

  5. Super tasty & easy! I added a little umami seasoning at the end and we loved it! I doubled the recipe for leftovers the next day & served over TJ’s brown rice!

  6. This recipe is soooo good and simple! Didn’t have basil but it was still amazing and very flavor. Adding this as a staple!
