Leftover Turkey?

Turkey with Curry and Rice

This one pot meal was a meal solution for leftover Thanksgiving turkey. I know it has been a few weeks since Thanksgiving. I chose to freeze leftover turkey and thawed some for this recipe in an effort to reduce the contents of the freezer.


1 c. chopped cooked turkey
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
2 tsp. curry powder
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. black pepper
1 c. cooked rice
1/3 c. peas
4 medium sized carrots, sliced
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
Cilantro, chopped


Heat the oil in a small pot or medium frying pan.
Toss in onions and carrots. Cook until onions are golden.
Add turkey, curry powder, salt, pepper and peas. Cook 1-2 minutes.
Stir in rice. Cook 2-3 minutes until all ingredients are hot.
Toss in cilantro and serve or add cilantro to each serving.

Note: This made 2.5 lunch servings for me. Consider doubling if this is desired as a one dish meal for more than one person, unless you have very light eaters.
