Budget-Friendly Asparagus, Mushroom & Turkey Stir Fry with Garlic Chili Honey Sauce


I was watching a TikTok the other day about how health & fitness is often a privilege, and a lot of people choose not to live a healthy lifestyle because they simply can’t afford it. And I believe that to be true.

Enter my new blog series here on Your Beginning: Budget-Friendly Meals. For this series, I want to showcase healthy meals that are $5 or less per serving. The secret to doing this (I believe) is buying the fruits & veggies in season. For June, the featured vegetable is asparagus, coming in at around $2 a bushel for the time being.
Today we’re going over to make this delicious Asparagus, Mushroom & Turkey Stir-Fry with a Chili Garlic Sauce inspired by Sweet Peas & Saffron’s Sirahcha Honey Sauce. This is a great recipe for meal prepping, packing for lunch the next day, or even to impress your guests for a Sunday dinner! First, we’ll go over the instructions, the actual recipe, and a cost breakdown of this recipe for you to prepare!

The Line-Up


The Visual Recipe

First Things First: Take your meat out an HOUR (at least) before cooking, so it has time to thaw. If not, microwave for 1 minute on each side (I do it all the time, you probably shouldn’t do it this way). I got my meat in a 4 pack from the store that was only $10!


Step 2: Measure everything out as you see above. Once you have everything ready to roll, the recipe goes a lot faster.


Step 3: Chop Chop those mushrooms & asparagus as below. Try and cut them the same size, so they cook evenly.

Step 3.1: Mince your Ginger and Garlic as per the picture below.

Step 4: Start boiling your rice water. Cook per your package instructions. I did 1 1/2 cup water for 1 1/2 cup rice. Put on high until boiled and turn down to low once the rice is in.

Step 5: Cook the turkey on medium-high until brown and set aside. This should take about 5-6 minutes. When setting aside, leave the turkey juice in the pan to cook your veggies.

Step 6: Mix your sauce ingredients together and set them aside. Mix in your soy sauce, garlic, ginger, garlic chilli sauce, and honey in a jar or glass and set aside. Around this time, your rice should be done, just set it aside and turn off the burner.

Step 7: Cook your veggies on medium for 10 minutes.
