  • 2 cups uncooked instant brown rice
  • 2 cups frozen green beans, thawed
  • 1 pound ground turkey breast
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon thyme, dried
  • 1 cup fat-free chicken or beef broth
  • 2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • Salt and pepper



1. Cook rice according to the package directions. Heat green beans in a microwave. Cover both with foil to keep warm.
2. Meanwhile, mix together turkey, onions, parsley, and salt. Shape mixture into 16 meatballs; set aside.
3. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set pan over medium-high heat. When pan is hot, add mushrooms and cook 2-3 minutes, until tender. Remove mushrooms from pan; set aside.
4. Add meatballs to the hot pan. Sauté 3 minutes, until browned, turning frequently. Return mushrooms to pan; add thyme, salt, and pepper; stir. Add 3/4 cup of broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer 3 minutes, until meatballs are cooked through.
5. Dissolve cornstarch in remaining 1/4 cup of broth. Add mixture to pan and simmer for 1 minute. Serve over cooked rice with green beans on the side.
