Ginger Stir Fry Sauce

  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup coconut cream, scooped from top of canned coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger (up to 3 teaspoons for spicier sauce)
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine pink salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon each garlic powder and onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked pepper
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked salt

Turkey Stir Fry

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil
  • 3 cups peeled and diced white sweet potato
  • 1 cup diced red onion, divided
  • 1 pound ground turkey or chicken
  • 1/3 cup sliced green onions
  • cracked pepper to taste
  • for serving: avocado, toasted cashews and chopped fresh cilantro, if desired


  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together all of the ingredients for the Ginger Stir Fry Sauce except the coconut aminos and smoked salt.
  2. Bring to a boil uncovered over medium heat. Allow to reduce for 10 minutes until thickened into a dark sauce that will coat the back of a spoon. 
  3. Stir in the coconut aminos and smoked salt. Set aside. 
  4. Meanwhile, make the Turkey Stir Fry. Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. 
  5. Add all but 3 tablespoons of the diced red onion to the skillet along with the diced sweet potatoes. Cook, stirring every few minutes, until the potatoes are browned and almost cooked through. 
  6. Stir in the ground turkey and season with crack pepper. Once the turkey is almost cooked through, cover the skillet with a lid for 1 minute to steam cook the sweet potatoes, if they are not fully cooked yet. 
  7. Stir in the Ginger Stir Fry Sauce until combined. Finally, add in the green onion. 
  8. Serve topped with the remaining 3 tablespoons of red onion and any other optional toppings like avocado, cashew and fresh cilantro.
