  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cornstarch (optional, but it helps to thicken the sauce)
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, water, sesame oil, and garlic powder. In a separate small bowl, whisk the cornstarch with 2 teaspoons of water until smooth. Set aside.
  • In a large nonstick skillet or wok, brown the ground turkey over medium-high heat, crumbling it with a spatula as it cooks. Once browned and cooked through, stir in the soy sauce mixture. Bring to a simmer and let the mixture cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the cornstarch and water mixture and continue stirring until the sauce has thickened. Remove the pan from heat.
  • Serve over rice or cauliflower rice with any veggies you like.


Feel free to swap ground chicken for ground turkey.
