Healthy Version Turkey Kung Pao

When I changed my lifestyle 180 degrees I thought that all my favorite dishes usually eaten out would be a thing of the past. Nothing more misleading. The purpose behind WorkWeekFoodie is to create such a rich palette of meals so that you love your food so much that you won’t have to diet any more. And this meal is an example of this. I adjusted it to my definition of a healthy meal. Let’s get rolling Foodies!


  • 400 grams of turkey breast stripes
  • 1 onion coarsely chopped
  • 2 carrots cut into thin slices
  • 2 celery stalks cut into thin slices
  • A bowl of snow peas (fresh or frozen)
  • A small piece of sliced fresh ginger
  • 3 garlic cloves sliced or chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons  Hoisin sauce
  • 2 teaspoons white or brown sugar, or organic honey
  • 2 tablespoons  of low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons of coconut oil
  • A pinch of raw peanuts

Prep Instructions

  1. Heat up oil in a pan. Add turkey breast stripes and cook on high until browned (approx. 8-10 min). Set turkey stripes aside.
  2. On the same pan add onion, bell pepper, garlic, ginger. Stir fry on high for 2 minutes and add fish sauce, sugar or honey, soy sauce and hoisin sauce. Saute for further 5-7 minutes.
  3. Add turkey stripes and mix all ingredients thoroughly. Throw in some raw peanuts for the last 2-4 minutes.
