Instructions

Bowl Preparation

  • In a frying pan, brown the turkey. Add the umami seasoning, soy sauce, and garlic.
  • Once the turkey is cooked through, remove from the pan.
  • Heat 1 tbsp of oil in either your frying pan or wok on high.
  • Stir fry the cabbage quickly. Allow some of the pieces to brown. This will add more flavor.
  • Optional: Add salt to the cabbage.
  • Build the bowls with the cabbage, turkey, and top with carrots, bell pepper, and green onions.
  • Mix in the sauce.

Ginger Sesame Sauce

  • Combine all of the ingredients for ginger sesame sauce. If it is too thick you can add some water 1 tsp at a time.

Notes

These bowls are great made ahead of time. Store the sauce separatly then add right before serving.
If you want a more bold flavor, consider adding more toasted sesame oil (1tsp total).
