Hoisin sauce is easy to make at home! This recipe beats the bottled kind with stabilizers and artificial ingredients:
1 tbs rice wine vinegar
2 tbs low sodium soy sauce (or coconut aminos)
1 tbs almond butter (or peanut butter)
1/2 tbs agave or honey (or leave it out)
1 tbs sambal olek (chili paste)
1 tsp sesame oil
Begin by browning 1 lb of lean ground turkey in a pan. Add 1 can diced water chestnuts, 1 tbs minced garlic, and 1/4 cup chopped green onions. Stir in the hoisin sauce. Serve in lettuce or cabbage cups.
This dish is easily packed for weekday lunches- just store the lettuce leaves separately from the seasoned turkey.
Ugh- what a terrible picture! I hate fluorescent lighting. I’m excited to work on improving my food photography in the coming months. For now, trust that these recipes taste better than they look!

Ohh! Great idea! This would be very tasty with tofu :)
