1 Package Ground Turkey
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
½ Head Cabbage - cut in ¼
1 Onion – Peeled - cut in ¼
1 Large Carrot – Peeled – cut in ¼ (or 1 cup pre shredded carrots)
1 tbsp Fresh Ground Ginger
2 tbsp Low Sodium Soy Sauce
½ tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 Package Round Won Ton Wrappers
2 Scallions – finely chopped
1 tbsp Sesame Seeds
In a pan over med/high heat add the EVOO and Turkey. Break the turkey up and brown it about 5 minutes. Drain off any oil and set turkey aside.
In a food processor add cabbage, onion, carrot and shred to combine. In a large bowl add the cabbage mixture, the ground turkey, ginger, soy sauce, cayenne pepper and brown sugar. Mix well. Taste to adjust seasonings accordingly.
Take the won tons and with a pastry brush or your finger, wet the outer edges with water. Take about a teaspoon of the ground turkey mixture and place in the center of the won ton. Fold the won ton in ½ and press the edges to firmly seal.
In a shallow pan bring about 2” of water to a simmer. Salt like you would pasta. Gently add in the won tons (in batches) and simmer about 1 minute on each side.
In another pan w/ 1 tbsp EVOO, on med/high heat, add in the won tons and brown on each side (about 1 minute each side).
Garnish with chopped scallions and sesame seeds. For an added flavor add your favorite Asian dipping sauce.
