22g fat


INGREDIENTS


  • 1 large russet potato, peeled and grated

  • Salt, to taste

  • Cooking spray

  • 1 pound (450g) ground turkey (98% lean)

  • 1 teaspoon (1g) ground fennel powder

  • 1 teaspoon (1g) garlic powder

  • ½ teaspoon (0.5g) ground cumin

  • ½ teaspoon (0.5g) onion powder

  • 2 teaspoons (15g) granulated sugar

  • 2 teaspoons (12g) fine sea salt

  • 1 tablespoon (14g) unsalted butter

  • 1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and diced

  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced

  • 8 large eggs

  • 6 burrito size (10-inch) flour tortillas

  • 1 1/2 cups (300g) shredded cheddar or Monterey jack cheese (optional)

  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped


INSTRUCTIONS


  1. On a towel, add the grated potatoes and a generous pinch of salt. Toss together to combine. Wrap the potatoes in the towel and squeeze all the moisture out of the potatoes over a sink or bowl.

  2. Lightly grease a medium-sized nonstick pan with cooking spray and heat to medium. Add the potatoes, and press down firmly into one even layer in the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until the first side is golden brown and crispy, flip, and cook for another 3-5 minutes or until the second side is crispy and the inside is just cooked through. Season to taste with salt and set aside.

  3. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the turkey with fennel powder, garlic powder, cumin, onion powder, sugar, sea salt, and mix together until fully incorporated.

  4. Heat a medium, 10-12-inch, non-stick skillet over medium high. Lightly grease with cooking spray. Add the turkey and press it down into one even layer in the pan, like a large hamburger patty. Sear for 2-3 minutes, or until browned and beginning to set. Flip, and sear for another 2-3 minutes or until browned on the second side and it reaches an internal temperature of 165℉ / 74℃. Cut the turkey evenly into small squares.

  5. Add butter to a medium-sized, 10-12-inch, non-stick skillet, and set to medium. Once melted, add the bell pepper and yellow onion and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until they begin to soften. Season with salt to taste.

  6. While the peppers and onion cook, in a medium sized bowl, crack in the eggs and whisk until homogenous. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet with the onions and peppers. Scramble, stirring often, to your liking. Season with salt to taste.

  7. Lightly warm a tortilla over an open flame until pliable. Over the bottom half of the tortilla, layer eggs, turkey, cheddar, hashbrowns, and cilantro. Roll into a burrito and repeat with the remaining ingredients.

  8. In a medium-sized pan over medium heat toast the burritos to seal the edges. Let cool to room temperature.

  9. If storing for the week, wrap each burrito in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator. Reheat in a 400-450℉ / 204-232℃ oven until warmed through.

  10. If storing for the month, store the plastic wrapped burritos in the freezer and bake from frozen in a 400-450℉ / 204-232℃ oven until warmed through.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 6


Nutrition Per 1 Serving (nutritional values will vary based on ingredients used)

352 calories

39.8g protein

26.8g carbs

8.3g fat


INGREDIENTS


  • 1 tablespoon (12g) vegetable oil, divided

  • 2 pounds (900g) chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces

  • 1 carrot, finely diced

  • 2 medium shallots, finely chopped

  • 3 Thai chilies, thinly sliced

  • Salt, to taste

  • 3 cups (600g) leftover, cold cooked white rice

  • Cooking spray

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/2 cup (82g) frozen peas

  • 3 tablespoons (48g) soy sauce

  • Pinch ground white pepper

  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced for garnish (optional)


INSTRUCTIONS


  1. To season your wok, generously coat with oil and heat over high heat. Swirl to coat the entire wok with oil. Once it begins to smoke, cut off the heat and dispose of the oil safely. Wipe the wok with a clean paper towel to remove any excess oil.

  2. When ready to make the fried rice, add vegetable oil to the wok and place over high heat. Once the wok begins to smoke, add in the chicken and spread out in an even layer across the wok. Sear for 3-4 minutes without stirring, or until the underside of the chicken is brown and crispy and it is cooked halfway through. Once each piece is browned, flip the chicken and sear for another 2-3 minutes or until browned on the other side and just cooked through. Remove the chicken from the wok to a sheet pan.

  3. Add carrots, shallots, Thai chiles, and season lightly with salt. Stir for 2-3 minutes, or until vegetables are softened.

  4. Return the chicken to the wok and add the rice. Stir fry until the rice is hot and the chicken is completely cooked through.

  5. Scoot the mixture to one side of the wok, lightly grease the empty space with cooking spray, and add in eggs. Whisk together in the wok until homogenous. Season to taste with salt. Scramble, stirring often, to your liking.

  6. Toss everything together in the wok and add peas, soy sauce, and white pepper. Stir until incorporated.

  7. If storing for the week, cool completely and then store a single serving in a quart sized ziptop bag. Follow the reheat instructions below to serve.

  8. If storing for the month, cool completely and then store in single servings in quart sized ziptop bags. Flatten the bags and store in the freezer stacked on top of each other. When ready to serve, heat a large pot of water until it steams. Turn off the heat and add a bag. Heat until everything is defrosted and hot. Serve immediately and garnish with green onions if you’d like.

  4. Reduce the heat to low and add in the shrimp. Stir to combine and add in an additional ½ cup of stock or water, if needed, so the shrimp are mostly covered in liquid. Bring to a boil over medium high. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5-8 minutes or until the shrimp is just cooked through and pink.
