For the Turkey

  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/4 Cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 Cup light soy sauce
  • 1/2 Teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 3 Cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon grated ginger root
  • 1 Pound lean ground turkey, such as Foster Farms Turkey

For the Bowl

  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 Cup shredded carrots
  • 2 Cups kale, stems removed and roughly chopped
  • 2 Cups sliced baby Shiitake mushrooms
  • 2 Cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 Avocado, sliced
  • 5 Green onions, chopped

For the Gochu Sauce

  • 1/4 Cup Gochujang sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon melted coconut oil
  • 2 Teaspoons raw honey
  • 1 Teaspoon light soy sauce


For the Turkey

Heat the coconut oil over a medium-high heat. While heating the coconut oil, prepare a sauce by whisking the brown sugar, soy sauce and red pepper together in a small bowl, and set aside.

Add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute until fragrant. Add the ground turkey, breaking it up with a spatula, and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until no longer pink.

Pour the sauce over the cooked turkey and cook an additional minute to heat through. Remove the turkey from the stove and transfer the meat to 4 serving bowls.

For the Bowl

If you want to be fancy with your bowl, sauté the veggies separately in the coconut oil over a medium-high heat, in the order listed above, so that you can arrange your bowl for a picture-perfect meal!


Heat the coconut oil over a medium-high heat and sauté the carrots for 2-3 minutes, until bright orange, then add the kale and mushrooms and cook another 2 minutes, or until the kale has wilted and the mushrooms are soft.

Transfer the veggies to your four bowls. Add 1/2 cup of rice, and a quarter of the green onions and avocado to each bowl.

For the Gochu Sauce

Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl until smooth. Spoon a quarter of the sauce over each bowl and enjoy!
