6 cups of water
1 pound of ground turkey
2 cups of cooked brown rice
1 teaspoon of dried rosemary
8 ounce package of frozen broccoli, carrots and cauliflower combination


Place water, ground turkey, cooked rice, and rosemary into a large Dutch oven or iron skillet. Stir until the ground turkey is broken and evenly distributed throughout the mixture. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Add frozen vegetables, and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool. Refrigerate until using. Makes 10 servings.
