Italian Sausage Flavored Turkey

I like Italian sausage cooked with bell peppers and onions. I had to find a healthy way to reduce cholesterol, avoid grease, and I am trying to avoid beef, therefore I use ground turkey or Morningstar Farms meatless products. I made a recipe for my children and I, and all bases above are covered.


  • 1 lb. turkey
  • 1/4 cup onions
  • 1/4 cup bell peppers
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1 pinch MSG (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp. fennel seeds
  • 1/3 cup Kikkoman naturally brewed soy sauce (Kikkoman has to be used to get the greatest flavor)
  • rice, couscous, or quinoa


Brown meat, then add other ingredients. Cook meat until done and veggies are soft. Drain any grease.

Add 1 cup water, add all other ingredients to browned meat. Bring to a boil, then simmer 10-15 minutes. The liquid will be less after simmering.

Cook rice, couscous, or quinoa of choice. 6-8 cups cooked rice per 1lb. meat ratio.

Place a serving of rice onto plate, add meat mix on top of rice. You may mix rice and meat mixture together also. This is much easier for children or large families. No mixing on plate required so Mom can join and enjoy eating with the family, too.

Just double recipe for larger servings.
