Turkey Spring Roll

Turkey Spring Roll

I was going to make an Asian meatball but had some rice/tapioca paper and decided to make a spring roll with a little dipping sauce. I am not sure if rice paper is GF or paleo but it was made out of tapioca so if that doesn’t work for you there might be other options for you. The other think to note is you cant fry these babies. The package was written in Japanese but had a picture of a soft gummy roll and a crunchy one. I found out the hard way this stuff turns to gum and blows up and pops… Needless to say I ditched my first batch. Also I am not a great roller so mine don’t look that great. If I were serving to guests I would lay out cilantro and carrots and then add my turkey mixture so the outside looked better.
Rice or Tapioca Paper
Package of lean organic ground turkey
Green Onions
Soy Sauce (GF)
Fish Sauce
Chili oil
Sesame oil

Rice vinegar
Soy Sauce
Red Pepper flakes
Sesame oil
Chili Oil

Sauce: equal parts vinegar and soy. Add honey to taste. Then a scant of sesame oil (very strong stuff) and about two tbs of chili oil and 1/2 tbs of fresh ginger and red pepper flakes. Whisk and set aside.

Turkey in a medium heated pot I diced about 10 green onions and added the white and light green parts to the pan with a dash of Sesame oil and several dashes of Chili oil. Browned turkey and added ginger, garlic and soy sauce with some fish sauce. When browned and combined taste and season accordingly and set aside to cool.
Add your shredded carrots and cilantro to your cooled turkey and set aside. One by one put your paper into warm water to soften. Add your turkey mixture by the spoonful and fold up like a burrito. Enjoy with your dipping sauce.
