Healthy, Gluten Free Chinese Food

Chinese always used to be one of my favorite take-out meals. Of course, I used to eat sesame chicken, lo mein and other greasy heavy meals when I ordered it. I can definitely find healthier yummy Chinese that I would love to eat… except… trying to find Chinese that is 100% Gluten Free is next to impossible unless it’s plain and steamed.

So…

I have decided to take on some of my favorites and make the take out myself. With the help of Pinterest of course!😂

This was so incredibly yummy! The whole family loved it and I didn’t feel like a bloated mess afterward! Plus you can double or triple the batch and have it for lunches all week. 👍😊

Directions

  1. Brown the turkey in a large nonstick skillet with 1/3 of the oil.
  2. Season with a light pinch of salt and add a tsp. of the garlic powder.
  3. Remove, set aside
  4. Add the rest of the sesame oil to pan.
  5. Add cabbage, carrots, rest of garlic and ginger and cook about 8 minutes just so they start to get tender.
  6. Then add onion and saute another 3 to 4 minutes until onion is tender. At this point you can add a little water to pan to get everything really soft or if you like a bite like I do skip that step.
  7. Add meat back to pan, add the Tamari and a little water and saute a few minutes to make sure all of the flavors blend.
