Chinese takeout is the long-standing salvation of individuals who just don’t have time to cook. In the present age, takeout has become even more timely; UberEats and Postmates bring the food to your door.
A few weeks ago, I heard that even McDonald’s will deliver food (for a small fee) if the drive through isn’t speedy enough for you.
I would argue that this easy Asian dish is more convenient than takeout. It requires only a few ingredients and less than thirty minutes.
Just like our other “BLTs” this month, it is the Best Lazy option for a busy night!
- 16 oz. ground turkey or spicy turkey sausage
- 1/2 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons ground ginger (you will need these at different times)
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes (omit if using spicy turkey sausage)
- 16 oz. chopped cabbage slaw
- 1 red pepper, cut into thin strips
- 10 green onion, sliced thin
- 1/4 cup soy sauce or coconut aminos
- 1/2 cup water
- In a large skillet, cook turkey with 1/2 tablespoon ginger, 1 clove of garlic, and 1 tablespoon of red pepper flakes until turkey is cooked through. Drain and return to skillet.
- Add slaw, sliced red pepper, and green onions. Sautee for 2-3 minutes.
- Stir in soy sauce, watre, and remaining ginger (2 teaspoons). Cook 2-3 minutes or until slaw is slightly wilted.
- Serve warm.
