From rice bowls to egg rolls, I’ve gathered 17 delicious Asain ground turkey recipes.

And they span cuisines from Japanese to Korean to Chinese to Thai. I can’t wait to dig in! 

Can you?

1. Healthy Ground Turkey Teriyaki Rice Bowl

Are you in need of a quick and delicious meal the whole family will love?

Well, you’re in luck because this is it. It’s healthy, flavorful, and budget-friendly, too!

Let me tell you why your family will love this. 

It’s loaded with protein and veggies. That means you can feel good about feeding your family well. Even picky eaters will gobble it up.

That’s because of the sauce. It’s sweet, savory, and utterly delicious. I dare you not to like this dish!

2. Asian Ground Turkey and Rice Bowls

If you thought the rice bowl in the previous recipe sounds good, try this one, too!

The concept is the same, with delicious ground turkey, healthy veggies, flavorful sauce, and filling rice. 

But the flavors are unique and wholly scrumptious. Plus, in the teriyaki bowl, the sauce is the star.

In this recipe, everything works together balancing all of the other flavors. 

This dish is a little sweet, a little sour, and a little spicy.

It features delicious ingredients like chili paste and pickled veggies. So, every bite is exciting!

3. Korean Ground Turkey

If you’ve ever had beef bulgogi, think of this like its lighter sister. This dish has all of the same great flavors but with a few healthier swaps. 

So, if you like eating healthy, refined sugar-free, whole, unprocessed foods… this is the dish for you! Did I mention that it’s delicious?

4. Asian Ground Turkey and Broccoli Cauliflower Rice Bowls

Who said Asian food couldn’t be low-carb? Well, I certainly didn’t. And this delicious dish is Exhibit A! 

But… but… but… what about noodles or rice? I know, they’re delicious. But cauliflower rice, when properly prepared, is just as tasty! 

This dish is seriously yummy. It’s sweet and savory and loaded with classic Asian flavors.

Sriracha or chili paste adds a delicious kick that you definitely will love. 

The best part is that since it’s so low-carb, you can eat as much as you want.

You’ll be full, but not heavy. And that’s the best place to be after a meal. 

5. Ground Turkey Stir-Fry

I love stir-fry because it is super easy, super customizable, and always delicious. This veggie-loaded, ground turkey stir-fry is one of my favorites. 

It’s healthy, flavorful, and naturally low-carb (it’s just meat and veggies). So, it’s one of those meals that you can feel really good about eating. 

Feel free to serve it over rice or noodles for additional yumminess.

6. Mongolian Turkey and Rice Bowls

This dish is made with sugar, spiciness, and everything nice. I know you and your family will love this!

Do you want saucy, mouthwatering meat? This dish has it! Do you want tasty veggies? It has that, too. 

7. Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps

These lettuce wraps are quick, easy, crunchy, and delicious.

They’re great for a light lunch or dinner and they’re super easy to meal prep

8. Asian Stuffed Peppers

If you love dumplings, you’re in for a treat with these Asian stuffed peppers.

They’re sort of like a giant, grain-free, super healthy version of a dumpling. Oh, and they’re delectable! 

The inside is flavorful and meaty. It’s stuffed with veggies and classic Asian-inspired flavors. It’s low-carb and super duper filling. 

9. Teriyaki Turkey Stuffed Peppers

If you think the stuffed peppers you just read about sound great, just wait!

These stuffed peppers are just as scrumptious. And they’re just as healthy. 

This version features ground turkey, lots of veggies, water chestnuts, and quinoa.

Everything is cooked in a delicious sweet-savory teriyaki sauce. It’s delicious.

10. Garlic Sesame Chicken/Turkey Zucchini Boats

If you like stuffed peppers, then you need to try zucchini boats! Although I love stuffed peppers, I actually prefer zucchini boats.

And these garlic sesame boats are the best.

Each bite contains a sweet-sour-savory bite of ground turkey, nutty sesame, and tender zucchini.

Those ingredients are complemented by six cloves of garlic for a mouth-watering flavor.

The best part is that these are healthy and relatively low-carb. So, you can eat your fill without any regrets. 

11. Asian Glazed Turkey Meatballs

Want to impress your friends and family with a delicious and elegant-looking meal?

Then I have a dish for you! These Asian glazed turkey meatballs are absolutely superb. 

Each meatball is tender and loaded with flavor. They’re smothered in a rich, salty, sweet sauce and topped with sesame and green onion.

But wait, there’s more. They’re done in less than 30 minutes, so you have time to enjoy your evening. 

Serve them as an appetizer or with rice and veggies for a fantastic meal!

12. Ground Turkey Potstickers

Potstickers are one of my favorite Asian meals. They’re meaty, flavorful, chewy, and just plain good.

And when they’re fresh like this recipe, you can’t beat that. 

Now, fresh potstickers are a bit time-consuming. All of the cooking parts go quickly. It’s just the stuffing and folding that takes a while. 

But these tasty turkey potstickers are worth every second.

Also, you can totally prepare everything ahead of time. That way, at dinner, you only need to fry them. 

13. Egg Roll in a Bowl

Do you love egg rolls? I do! And this egg roll in a bowl dish gives you all the flavor at a fraction of the calories. 

For many, the filling is the best part, and that’s what this dish is.

It’s bursting with flavor, succulent meat, and loads of healthy veggies. 

14. Baked Turkey Egg Rolls

If you just can’t get rid of the roll part of egg rolls, I get it. I’m with you. There’s nothing like that first crunchy, warm, and flavorful bite. 

So, instead of frying your rolls to get the perfect crunch, try these baked egg rolls!

The outside is still crunchy and delicious, but you don’t have all the grease. 

Plus, the inside is still AMAZING. That’s a win for me! 

15. Chinese Green Beans with Ground Turkey

You have to try these Chinese green beans! This is especially true if you think you don’t like green beans.

Plus, the ground turkey adds so much goodness to this dish. 

It’s spicy and gingery and garlicky and seriously delicious. Serve it over rice for a dinner your whole family will love. 

16. Thai Turkey Meatloaf

Meatloaf and Asian cooking don’t often go hand in hand. But it should.

I mean, people always use Asian-inspired ingredients with ground meat dishes. 

There are burgers, Asian tacos, etc. Why not meatloaf? This Thai turkey meatloaf is the perfect, utterly delectable example. 

The meat is soft and juicy, complemented by rice and typical Asian flavors.

The loaf is glazed in a sweet and spicy sriracha-based glaze. I’m drooling just thinking about it. 

17. Thai Drunken Noodles (Pad Kee Mao)

Don’t worry, you won’t have a raging hangover after indulging in this delicious dish. But your senses might be overwhelmed by just how yummy it is. 

It’s loaded with thick noodles, juicy meat, fresh herbs, and fiery spices.

It’s cooked in a rich sauce that will transport you to busy streets in Bangkok. Every bite is scrumptious!
