Serving size- 4


  1. Start by browning your ground turkey and red onion in 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and 1 teaspoon of sesame oil in a large saute pan, with high sides. Cook for about 3-4 minutes or until the meat is cooked through. Then, push the meat mixture over and crack 2 eggs and 1 teaspoon of your garlic and ginger to the pan and scramble. This will take a minute or so. Once the egg is almost cooked, move it around and combine with the meat mixture. Next, add in your chopped broccoli and cauliflower, water chestnuts, and sesame seeds (leave a little sesame seeds for garnish), to the pan and combine. Cook until everything is heated.
  2. While the fried rice is heating up, make your sauce. Add all the ingredients to a bowl, and whisk! Easiest sauce ever. Add the sauce to your fried rice mixture and combine. Taste for seasonings. Notice we have not added ANY salt to this dish and that is for a reason. Soy sauce has TONS of sodium so you don't need a drop. Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds and enjoy a guilt free meal!
