Turkey Kale Noodle Bowl

Turkey Kale Noodle Bowl

Turkey Kale Noodle Bowl
I am a big fan of Asian-inspired rice bowls but my noodle-loving daughters look wistfully at the Tinkyada brown rice linguine noodles hanging out next to the jar of jasmine rice. So I took pity and whipped up a Thai inspired NOODLE bowl which resulted in smiles and second helpings.

    Recipe Notes

    * I love the Tinkyada line of gluten-free, rice-based noodles. For this recipe I use their fettuccine.

    ** I prefer dark ground turkey meat which has more flavor and does not dry out like white turkey meat but use whichever you prefer.
