  • 2 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1/2 red onion finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 red bell pepper chopped
  • 2 cups grated carrot
  • 2 green onions chopped, for serving
For the Sauce:
  1. Add the ingredients for the sauce to a bowl and whisk until well-combined. Set aside until ready to use.

  2. Heat the avocado oil over medium-high heat and add the ground turkey. Allow the turkey to brown on one side for 2 minutes, then flip and allow it to brown another 2 minutes. Use a spatula to break the turkey into smaller pieces.

  3. Add the chopped red onion, garlic, bell pepper and carrots. Cook, stirring often, until vegetables begin to soften, about 2 minutes.

  4. Add the sauce and bring mixture to a full boil. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until sauce is mostly absorbed, turkey is cooked through, and vegetables reach desired done-ness, about 4 minutes.

  5. Taste mixture for flavor and add sea salt and/or more liquid aminos or sriracha to taste.

  6. Serve with choice of side dishes and enjoy!

Recipe Notes
  • Make it Low-FODMAP by omitting the onion and garlic and add 2 teaspoons mustard powder or 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard.
