For the ground turkey
Here’s what you need:

3 lbs lean ground turkey⁣
9 tsp garlic, minced (about 9 cloves)⁣
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed⁣
3/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce/tamari/coconut aminos⁣
6 tsp sesame oil⁣
1 tsp ground ginger (or 2-3 tsp minced)⁣
1 tsp crushed red pepper⁣
1 tsp black pepper⁣
Sliced green onions for garnish⁣


For the spring roll base
Here’s what you need:

10oz bag of shredded cabbage⁣
10oz bag of julienned carrots⁣
10oz bag of broccoli slaw⁣
12oz bag of sea kelp noodles ⁣
5oz greens of your choice, roughly chopped⁣
5-10 mini cucumbers, sliced⁣
1 bunch each of cilantro, mint, and Thai basil, roughly chopped⁣
1/3-1/2 cup peanuts, chopped⁣
Sesame seeds and sliced green onions for garnish⁣


For the honey garlic dressing
Here’s what you need:

1/2 cup olive oil⁣
6 tbsp rice vinegar⁣
4 tsp honey ⁣
2 tsp minced garlic⁣
Salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper to taste⁣

To prepare:

— Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add ground turkey; brown and chop until crumbled and cooked through. ⁣
— While the turkey is cooking, in a small bowl, whisk together the garlic, sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, and peppers until combined. ⁣
— Once turkey is cooked, pour in the sauce and simmer on low-medium until the sauce is thickened/absorbed and the turkey caramelizes. About 10 minutes. Once done, turn off heat and set aside.⁣
— As the turkey simmers, prepare your spring roll bowl base: dump all ingredients except the noodles, peanuts and green onions in a bowl and toss. Set aside. ⁣
— In a mason jar or some sort of lidded jar out of which you can shake the crap, put all your dressing ingredients in your vessel and, as stated, shake the crap out of it to combine. ⁣
— When ready to eat, simple layer your greens base, noodles, and meat, pour 1/8tbsp of dressing in your bowl, and garnish with onions, seeds, and peanuts. ⁣
— Enjoy! ⁣

— You can honestly add in anything that sounds refreshing here: chopped serrano peppers, bell peppers, add in a citrus to brighten things up. That’s the beauty of salad bases — you make it whatever you want. ⁣
— This dish does really well as a meal prepped lunch! Simply make your spring roll bowls in an air tight container, and your meat in another, smaller container, and when you’re ready to eat, all you gotta do is heat up the meat and BAM! Lunch.⁣
