Based on a popular Chinese dish, these fun wraps also make appealing appetizers for entertaining. Make it a meal: Serve with chile-garlic sauce and rice vinegar for extra zip; toss diced mango and strawberries with lime juice for a quick dessert.

Pretty good and easy to make. added more hoisen sauce and a dash of white pepper.


This was awesome! Better than a restaurant and you feel better eating it! We served it with a bit of siracha sauce (spicy garlic chili sauce) and WOW... just like PF Changs. Definitely add the fresh cilantro/green onion if you have it... makes a world of difference.


Another winner!


These were delicious! I made them without the sesame oil (didn't have any) and without the rice because we served them with Eating Well's Vegetable Fried Rice (which was also very good). There was too much liquid after I added the broth ( I think the rice would have soaked up some of this) so I made a little slurry with cornstarch and low sodium soy sauce- it thickened up perfectly! I also make a couple of additions: two cloves of garlic went in with the ginger and turkey, a small chopped carrot went in the pan with the bell pepper, and at the end I added some sesame seeds. For fresh herbs I used parsley and mint- be easy on the mint b/c I think I did a bit too much and overwhelmed some of the other flavors. I also added a sliced green onion and a splash of reduced sodium soy sauce. I will definitely make this again!


These are easy AND delicious! Instead of the fresh herbs, I just throw in some green onion at the end. I also add a little reduced sodium soy sauce. Since I'm usually halving the recipe for just my husband and I, I found it more of a pain to make the rice for how much was in there so I've been omitting it. I haven't noticed a difference and it cuts out some of the calories in the process! We make some egg drop soup to go with this and it's a perfect meal! In our regular rotation!
