We have discovered one of the most delicious, healthy, and of course gluten-free recipes ever.
Chinese food is a staple for most. It's got such bright, bold, fun, spicy flavors...particularly our favorite, the egg roll. It can be a bit heavy at times and is honestly hard to recreate those same flavors at home. Not anymore!
We've discovered an amazing homemade alternative that invites all of those familiar and spectacular flavors you love right into your bowl...without the guilt!
Here is the recipe:
2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided. 1 lb. ground turkey, beef, or pork 1 ½ cup sweet onion fìnely chopped 1 cup carrots shredded ½ tsp gìnger minced 3 cloves garlic crushed ¼ cup chicken broth 5 cups cabbage cut into ¼-inch shreds 2 Tbsp. coconut aminos or soy sauce (gluten-free) 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar ½ tsp. salt to taste ¼ tsp. pepper to taste 1 tsp. toasted sesame oil Toasted sesame seeds optional Green onions (optional for garnish.)
In a large saute pan over medium heat drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil and add ground turkey. Cook for 5-6 minutes or until turkey is almost cooked through. Push turkey to the side of the pan and add onion and the other tablespoon of oil. Saute for 3-4 minutes. Add shredded carrots, garlic, and ginger and saute for 2 minutes. Stir the vegetables and turkey together.
Pour chicken broth in the pan and scrape the bottom of it to deglaze it. Add cabbage, coconut aminos or soy sauce, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Stir well and cover with a lid. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 12-15 minutes, or until cabbage is to your desired tenderness. Just before serving, add toasted sesame oil and top with green onions and toasted sesame seeds. Serve over rice, cauliflower rice, or eat it in a bowl by itself.
