I hesitate to even list this as a recipe. Is there a lazy version of a recipe? Loose guidelines? Yes, this is definitely a list of loose guidelines, not a recipe. Anyways, I’m pretty obsessed with this concoction and how ridiculously easy it is to make. The key ingredients are a slaw (or cruciferous) veggie mix and salad dressing, which are pretty easy to find in any grocery store. It would probably be tastier and more cost effective to buy the whole vegetables, chop them yourself, and make your own dressing with fresh ginger… but let’s be real. It’s a Wednesday night, and I’m a hangry hot mess after work. If I can’t make something for myself in less than 15 minutes most nights, I’m ordering out!
My favorite way to make it is with leftover ground turkey & avocado, but it’s super versatile and you can change up ingredients according to what you have in your fridge. You could easily swap out the turkey for chicken, beef, tofu, more egg… or just skip the protein all together to make a veggie side dish. Don’t have an avocado on hand? You can also top with some sliced almonds for some healthy fats. You get the idea – the only key ingredients are the veggie mix and dressing.

Quick Cooking Directions:
Put the veggies in a wok with a little bit of oil (I do a couple spritzes of oil from a Misto). Once the veggies start to become a little tender (I like to make sure they still have some crispness to them), add in the sesame ginger dressing. Cook for about 1 minute and then add in the ground turkey and cook for 1 more minute. Then top the mixture with avocado and an egg (I usually cook the egg in a separate pan).
Like I said: not a recipe, loose guidelines. All in all it takes me only 5-10 minutes to make and still tastes pretty damn good.
