Turkey, cucumbers and mint make for one refreshing bowl.


  • 1 1/2 cups germinated brown rice, rinsed
  • 2 cups water
  • Salt for seasoning
  • Vegetable oil for drizzling
  • 2 large shallots, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 pound ground dark meat turkey, preferably organic
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated
  • 1/2 inch ginger, peeled and grated
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped mint
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced on a bias
  • 1 red chili, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 English cucumber, 1/4 inch dice
  • 1 cup bean sprouts, for garnish
  • Toasted seaweed


  1. In a 4-quart saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Season with salt. Add the rice and reduce to a simmer. Cook, covered, for 25 minutes, then remove the lid and cook uncovered for 5 minutes. Make sure all of the water is absorbed.
  2. While the rice cooks, heat a medium-sized skillet. Drizzle in a little vegetable oil and add the shallots. Cook until softened. Next, add the ground turkey and break into small pieces. Cook until browned.
