Teriyaki Meatballs with snow peas and edame

Adapted this recipe from Real Simple Magazine and it was really simply. Haha, I'm so corny.

What goes in it:
- brown rice
- 1 lb ground turkey (original recipe called for ground chicken which would have tasted better but I had turkey)
- 1 egg, beaten
- ground ginger (to your taste)
- chopped green onions
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 3 TBSP brown sugar
- snow peas
- one bag frozen edame, defrosted

Start by putting the rice on.

To make the meatballs:
- mix ground turkey, egg, ground ginger, and green onions, roll into meatballs and fry.

Meatball warning - my picky eater was weirded out by the "weird things" or green onions in the meatballs

Stir fry the snow peas and edame
Mix the soy sauce and brown sugar for the teriyaki sauce, this was my daughter's job

Throw it all in

Serve it over your brown rice

Besides sugar, you could also use honey to sweeten the teriyaki. Sprinkle some sesame seeds (if you have them) as garnish at the end.

I have a ton of cheap recipes on my freewebs site (www.freewebs.com/snl79ohio) Just follow the links on the left side of the screen. Also You have given me some great ideas!! I love the Buffalo Chicken Pizza idea and I'm gonna keep looking cause I know there are others I'm going to try! I love Rachel Ray and Food Network so I also do a lot of improvisation (no baking here, so kudos to you for trying!) Have a great holiday!
