  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1/2 medium onion cut into bite-size pieces
  • 5 ounces mushrooms (I used cremini) cut into quarters
  • 1 cup cabbage chopped
  • 1 medium red bell pepper chopped
  • 2 cups broccoli florets cut small
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Optional, for serving: chopped scallions, sesame seeds


  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger grated
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar or rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch


  • Prep all ingredients before getting started. Add the sauce ingredients to a bowl and whisk together.
  • Add one tablespoon of olive oil and the ground turkey to a large skillet and sauté it until it's cooked through over medium-high heat (about 8-10 minutes), breaking the meat up with your spoon as you go along.
  • Transfer the meat to a plate or bowl.
  • Add the rest of the olive oil to the same skillet and sauté the onion for about a minute.
  • Add in the remaining vegetables and cook them for 3-4 minutes, stirring often. Veggies will end up tender-crisp, but you can cook them for a bit longer if you prefer.
  • Add the turkey back into the skillet, then stir in the sauce. Let it bubble up for a minute or two so it thickens a bit (this isn't a super thick sauce). Continue stirring so everything is nicely coated. Season with salt & pepper as needed.
  • Serve over rice or noodles. I served it with chopped scallions sprinkled on top.


  • Hoisin sauce can be found in the Asian foods section of most grocery stores.
  • I keep a piece fresh ginger in the freezer in a ZipLoc bag. It's much easier to grate when it's frozen (I use my Microplane to grate it), and I know it's always there vs. going bad somewhere in my fridge!
