What’s Cooking with Melissa?

With school starting, sports practices and games to run around to, it doesn’t save much time for cooking in the evenings. This week I’d like to share a quick supper recipe for Egg Roll Stir Fry.


Egg Roll Stir Fry

1 lb. ground turkey (can use ground beef or pork also)

2 tbsp. olive oil (can use sesame oil if you have it)

1/4 cup onion, finely diced

1 tsp. ground ginger

2 tsp. minced garlic

2 tbsp. soy sauce (gluten free or low sodium if needed)

salt and pepper to taste

1 bag coleslaw mix (16 oz.)

1/2 cup shredded or grated carrots

1/4 cup green onions, chopped


In a large skillet, heat the oil and sauté onions until transparent. Next add the ground turkey, breaking it up with a spatula and cook thoroughly. Add ginger, minced garlic, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Stir and cook for a few minutes then add coleslaw mix and carrots. Sauté until cabbage is wilted; it only takes a few minutes. More soy sauce can be added if needed and top with chopped green onions. It’s great as is or serve over white rice, brown rice or cauliflower rice.

*Can top with duck sauce also.
