Sesame Turkey Crumbles with Veggies

I am in the middle of a Whole 30 right now, which means that when I make dinner it serves as lunch the next day as well. The only problem is when dinner is too good and there are no leftovers! That was the case with this turkey crumble dish I made last night. The combination of flavors was amazing and it paired really well with avocado and a simple arugula salad! If you are looking for an alternative to using ground meat this recipe is for you.

The OXO vegetable chopper makes dicing veggies really easy!

To date, I have only found this brand of greens at the Whole Foods in Milburn but it seriously is the best arugula I have ever tasted!
I add this Whole 30 approved dressing to EVERYTHING. It is that good!


Recipe for Sesame Turkey Crumbles and Veggies:


  • 1 lb ground turkey 
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 stalks of celery, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic minced 
  • 2 T of coconut aminos
  • 1 T of sesame oil (not toasted)
  • 1-2 T of cooking fat (I prefer avocado oil)
  • 1 T of everything bagel spice
  • 1 bunch of green onions for garnish


  1. Heat oil in pan on a medium flame for at least 30 seconds
  2. Add in minced garlic and saute until it browns (be careful not to burn)
  3. Add your chopped veggies to the pan and keep stirring until the veggies soften
  4. Once the veggies appear to have browned, add in the ground turkey and break it apart with a wooden spoon until you have made crumbles.
  5. Stir in the sesame oil, coconut aminos, and everything bagel spice and allow it all to cook  for approximately an additional 5 minutes
  6. Garnish with sliced green onions
  7. Serve on a bed of greens with avocado ( I prefer to use Tessamae’s lemon garlic salad dressing as my dressing)
  8. Enjoy!
