Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4 servings
Calories: 315 kcal


2 tablespoons of olive oil (divided)
1 pound of ground turkey or beef, preferably 93/7 ratio
1 ½ cups of finely diced sweet onion
1 cup of shredded carrots
½ teaspoon of ginger paste or minced ginger
3 cloves of crushed garlic
¼ cup of regular sodium chicken broth
5 cups of shredded cabbage, cut into ¼-inch shreds
2 tablespoons of gluten-free soy sauce Tamari or coconut aminos
2 teaspoons of rice wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
½ teaspoon of salt (to taste)
¼ teaspoon of pepper (to taste)
1 teaspoon of toasted sesame oil
Optional garnishes: Toasted sesame seeds, green onions


Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat, drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and add ground turkey. Cook until almost done, about 5-6 minutes.
Push the turkey to one side of the pan and add the remaining oil along with onions. Sauté for 3-4 minutes.
Incorporate shredded carrots, garlic, and ginger, sautéing for an additional 2 minutes before mixing them with the turkey.
Pour chicken broth into the pan, deglazing it thoroughly.
Add cabbage, coconut aminos or soy sauce, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Stir well, cover with a lid, and simmer over medium-low heat for 12-15 minutes or until cabbage reaches desired tenderness.
Just before serving, drizzle with toasted sesame oil and garnish with green onions and toasted sesame seeds. Enjoy over regular rice, cauliflower rice, or as a standalone bowl.
