I’m always down to cook something that is fast, inexpensive, and of course, delicious.  So when I found this recipe in Real Simple, one of my favorite magazines, I knew I had to try it. Perfect for the college students or busy parents out there! And…it’s super healthy 🙂

Turkey Teriyaki Meatballs with Edamame & Snow Peas

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups long-grain rice
  • 1 1/4 pounds ground chicken
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 pound snow peas, halved crosswise (3 cups)
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

Directions

  1. Cook the rice according to the package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the chicken, scallions, and ginger. Shape into 16 meatballs.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the meatballs, turning, until cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  4. Wipe out the skillet. Heat the remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add the peas and edamame. Cook, tossing, for 2 minutes. Return the meatballs to skillet.
  5. In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce and sugar. Add to the skillet and simmer until slightly thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve over the rice.
