  • 1-1/4 pounds 20 ounces extra-lean ground turkey
  • 2 large cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 2 Tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Thai fish sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1-2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon tapioca starch
  • Additions: green leaf lettuce broccoli slaw, sliced green onions


  • Preheat a large skillet with 1 Tablespoon olive or coconut oil. Once the pan is heated, place the turkey and minced garlic in the skillet and begin to brown the meat, breaking up with a spatula as you cook it. Don't add salt to the meat here, the fish sauce has enough sodium for this recipe.
  • Meanwhile, place the chicken stock, coconut aminos, fish sauce, orange juice, lime juice, ginger, and tapioca starch in a bowl and whisk together.
  • Once the ground turkey is completely cooked through, add the sauce to the ground meat and cook until the sauce has thickened.
  • Serve wrapped in lettuce cups and topped with sliced green onions and broccoli slaw!
