To store any leftover Turkey and Vegetable Stir-Fry with Brown Rice, transfer it to an airtight container and refrigerate promptly. The stir-fry can be stored for up to 2-3 days. When reheating, warm the stir-fry in a skillet over medium heat until heated through. You can also reheat it in the microwave. For best results, reheat the brown rice separately, as it may have a better texture when reheated on its own. Enjoy the flavors of the stir-fry all over again for a quick and satisfying meal.
