Method:

Stir-Fry

Ingredients

1
onion, diced
1/2 c
celery, diced
1/2 c
red bell pepper, diced
1 pt
baby portebello mushrooms, diced
1 lb
ground turkey extra lean
1 tsp
minced garlic
1 tsp
ginger, paste
1 tsp
dry mustard
1 can(s)
water chestnuts
1/4-1/2 c
general tsao sauce
1-2
heads of lettuce; iceberg or romaine

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Shortcuts! Available in freezer section: Frozen mirepoix w/ the onion, celery, & (usually) green peppers. I toss in the whole bag (@ 2-cups).
Also, Morningstar crumbles 'ground beef' substitute is basically seasoned diced mushrooms. If you sub this, add them last & reduce cooking time to just reheat the Morningstar product.
2
If going from scratch, all the dicing can be done up to 8 hours ahead; I do the peppers, celery, & onion together & then the mushrooms alone in a large food processor.
3
Cook onion, celery, & peppers to your taste preference. Some families prefer these really cooked down, others want them still crunchy. Add mushrooms & saute to the level of tenderness you enjoy. No difference in success of recipe.
4
Push above ingredients to sides of pan [or remove from pan/heat] until ground turkey (+) garlic, ginger, & dry mustard is well done.
5
Blend all ingredients in pan, add diced water chesnuts and General Tsao sauce. Stir until warm throughout.
6
Scoop into iceberg lettuce leaves or serve over bed of chopped romaine
