Ingredients

1 1/2 cups basmati rice

1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/2 teaspoon sugar

3/4 pound 99 percent lean ground turkey

1 clove garlic, minced

1 small half-sour pickle, finely chopped

2 teaspoons Asian chile paste, such as sambal oelek

1 cup fat-free low-sodium chicken broth

2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

1 tablespoon dry sherry or rice vinegar (not seasoned)

2 teaspoons cornstarch

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Stir in the rice, cover and boil until tender, about 18 minutes; drain well and keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler. Toss the green beans, 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil and the sugar on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil, stirring once, until the beans are tender and charred, about 8 minutes.
  3. Heat the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the turkey and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until browned, 3 minutes. Add the garlic, pickle and chile paste and cook until the garlic is slightly golden, about 3 minutes.
  4. Whisk the chicken broth, soy sauce, sherry and cornstarch in a bowl. Add the green beans to the skillet with the turkey mixture and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add the soy sauce mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Serve with the rice.
