This is a really easy stir fry to put together and eating it in lettuces cups makes it fun. Adding veggies to it making it a 1 pot meal, so I am all for it. It is also delicious on top of rice, cauliflower rice or noodles or even quinoa....

  • 1 eggplant, peeled and chopped into small cubes
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 tbsp of fresh grated ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 2 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp of rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp of sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp of avocado oil
  • Optional: cilantro, toasted cashews and green onions for garnish
  • Lettuce cups to serve


Heat up the avocado oil with the shallot, garlic and ginger for a few minutes until fragrant. Add the turkey and cook for a few more minutes. Add the eggplant and combine with the soy sauce, vinegar and sesame oil, cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes. Transfer in a dish and sprinkle the cilantro, green onions and cashews on top. Spoon in a lettuce cups and enjoy!
