Turkey Basil Fried Rice

I created this recipe to promote your contest on my food blog, Frontier Foodie. On my blog I work to create recipes that are easy, budget friendly, and pleasing to both the eye and the tastebuds! This recipe fits into all these categories, not to mention it is a whole lot healthier than your typical fried rice. Thank you for providing this platform to raise money for Common Threads.


  1. 1Put rice in a pot with 4 cups of water and bring to a boil. When water has reached boiling point, turn off stove top leaving your pot on the burner, cover with lid, and let sit for about 30 minutes for rice to cook.
  2. 2Put 2 tbs of oil in a large saucepan or wok and cook ground turkey on medium high until cooked through. Place chopped green onions, basil leaves, and shredded carrots in with the meat and cook for another minute or two.
  3. 3. Push meat mixture to the side, break your eggs into the pan, and scramble them in the space away from the meat. When the eggs are almost completely scrambled, add in the rice, pineapple (including the juice), soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, and the other 2 tbs of oil. Mix gently until the eggs are fully integrated into the rice and meat. Serve hot and enjoy!
