Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Asian on the menu? Try pairing with Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer, and Riesling. The best wine for Asian food depends on the cuisine and dish - of course - but these acidic whites pair with a number of traditional meals, spicy or not. The Leo Steen Saini Vineyard Chenin Blanc with a 4.2 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 18 dollars per bottle.

Leo Steen Saini Vineyard Chenin Blanc

Like being transported to a spring meadow, this lovely wine displays enticing aromas of chamomile, lemon verbena, thyme and zesty citrus. On the long, refreshing palate, excellent natural acidity and wet gravel minerality bring beautiful energy to the wine, carrying flavors of green apple and Anjou pear to a bright, focused finish.

Instructions

  1. Place the ground turkey and minced garlic in a skillet and begin to brown, breaking up as you cook. As the ground meat cooks, you can use a hand-held potato masher to help break up the meat more evenly. Dont add salt to the ground meat here the fish sauce has enough sodium to replace any added salt in this recipe.
  2. Meanwhile, place the stock, aminos, fish sauce, marmalade, lime juice, sesame oil, ground ginger, and tapioca starch in a bowl or magic bullet and whisk/process until blended well.
  3. Add the sauce to the ground meat and cook until the turkey is cooked through and the sauce has thickened up.
  4. Serve with broccoli slaw, wrapped in a large green lettuce leaf. Enjoy!

Tips

Health Tips

  • Some bouillon/stock products contain gluten, some don't. If you are following a gluten-free diet, always read product labels carefully.

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

Cooking Tips

  • Here's a trick for peeling garlic quickly. Put the garlic clove on your cutting board. Take a knife with a thick blade and place the blade flat across the garlic clove (the clove should be closer to the handle than the middle of the blade). Whack down on the flat side of the blade with your free hand to smoosh the garlic a bit. Done correctly, the skin will peel right off.

  • Make sure you cook ground meat thoroughly. Grinding meat creates a lot of surface area that bacteria can grow on, so eating undercooked ground meat poses a real health risk.

  • Corn starch, potato starch, arrowroot powder, and tapioca powder are all comparable in terms of thickening ability, so you can usually substitute them 1:1. Flour, on the other hand, is only half as effective, so if you are using flour instead of corn starch or one of the others named, you'll need to use twice as much.

  • The average fresh lime contains 2 tablespoons of lime juice (just in case you are substituting bottled lime juice).
