For Turkey:

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1/3 cup chopped Thai basil (or sub regular basil)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon grass, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

For the Veggies:

  • 2 teaspoons avocado oil or extra-virgin avocado oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 bell peppers, cored and sliced
  • 1 cup green beans
  • 1 bunch bok choy
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

For Sauce:

  • 4 tablespoon coconut aminos
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon fish sauce

To assemble:

  • Cauliflower Rice or White Rice, cooked
  • Bibb lettuce
  • Chili Peppers, sliced
  • Carrots, cut into thin strips


  1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once hot add all turkey ingredients and mix until well combined. Cook until the turkey is cooked through and no pink remains, about 5-7 minutes. Taste and adjust salt and pepper as needed.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare either cauliflower rice or white rice as desired.
  3. To cook veggies: Heat oil in another pan over medium heat.  Add in diced onion, sliced red peppers and green beans. Cook until onion becomes translucent and veggies begin to soften, about 5-7 minutes. Add in bok choy, salt and pepper. Cook until wilted.
  4. In a small pot add all of the ingredients for the sauce. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 1-2 minutes until sauce reduces and thickens slightly.
  5. Assemble bowls by adding rice, then ground turkey, then veggies and drizzle with sauce. Serve with desired toppings. Serve immediately, or let cool completely before storing for meal prep.
