Spicy Green Beans with Ground Turkey Recipe
like Mr. H. not naming any names, aren’t exactly fans of ground turkey. In fact, when I mention that ground turkey is the protein of a dish, I’m mostly met with a blank look. I get it, it does have less fat and thus less flavour than say, ground pork. But when it’s not the primary ingredient in a dish and only scattered about, it really doesn’t make much of a difference.
This recipe is very flavourful and I, nor my waist-line, missed the fatty ground pork.
