Servings: 4servings, about 6 1/2 cups
3tablespoonslow-sodium soy sauce - divided (use coconut aminos to make Paleo, Keto, Whole30, or gluten free)
1teaspooncornstarch - use arrowroot starch to make Paleo, Whole30, or Keto
16ounces90% or 93% lean ground turkey - to make vegetarian, swap crumbled extra-firm tofu (press it dry first)
8ouncesbaby bella (cremini) mushrooms
1small bunchgreen onions - divided
1tablespooncanola oil, grapeseed oil, or similar neutrally flavored high-temperature cooking oil - olive oil will smoke, so I suggest one of these other oils instead
1(12-ounce) bag broccoli coleslaw
1cupgrated carrots - freshly grated from peeled carrots or store-bought
1tablespoonminced fresh ginger
2teaspoonsfresh chili paste (sambal oelek) or hot sauce of choice - plus additional to taste
1/4teaspoonground black pepper
Prepared brown rice
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together 1 tablespoon soy sauce and cornstarch with a fork. Add the turkey, breaking apart the meat and stirring to coat with the sauce. Let marinate 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, chop the mushrooms very finely and mince the garlic. Thinly slice the green onions. If any of your other ingredients are not yet prepped, do it now.
Heat a wok or large, deep sauté pan over high heat. Add the oil and swirl to coat. Add the marinated turkey and cook, breaking apart the meat into small bits with a heatproof spatula, until it's no longer pink and fully cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add the green onions (reserve a small handful for serving) and mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms soften, about 2 additional minutes.
Reduce the heat to medium low. Add the broccoli coleslaw, carrots, ginger, and garlic. Stir-fry for 2 minutes, until the vegetables are softened.
Add the rice vinegar, chili paste, sesame oil, black pepper, and remaining 2 tablespoons soy sauce, then stir to combine. Continue to cook for 1 additional minute. Taste and add additional soy sauce, hot sauce, or black pepper as desired. Scoop into serving bowls (over brown rice, quinoa, or cauliflower rice if desired). Serve hot, sprinkled with additional green onions.
TO STORE: Store the egg roll filling in an airtight storage container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. You can store the rice on its own or portion everything together into individual serving containers for a meal-prep approach.
TO FREEZE: Place leftovers in an airtight freezer-safe storage container and freeze for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then reheat gently in the microwave or on the stove top. I find the leftovers lose some of their zip, so I like to top mine with a few shakes of extra soy sauce.
