Chard Rolls

1 lb ground turkey

olive oil for baking dish and drizzling

3 tbs carrots, heaping; diced or grated

3 tbs zucchini, heaping; diced or grated

2 tsp grated ginger, fresh

1 bunch red or rainbow chard leaves (6- 10)**

1 egg*

1 tbs coconut flour

1/2 tsp masala garam

1/2 tsp salt

Dipping Sauce

1 1/2 avocado

1 tbs coconut aminos

1 tbs toasted sesame oil

1 tsp fresh ginger, grated

1 tbs apple cider vinegar

cayenne (optional)


1Preheat the oven to 355º. Oil medium baking dish with olive oil.

2Dice the carrots and zucchini. Sautee carrots and zucchini for a couple minutes until tender. Cool and squeeze the water out of the veggies with a cheese cloth or paper towels and set aside. Grate ginger and set aside.

3**Blanch leaves (optional): If using swiss chard or stiff/sturdy leaves, boil water and turn down to medium heat. Place leaves in water for 15-30 seconds until softened, but still bright green. Dunk in ice water, dry off and set aside.

4Mix turkey and roll up: Mix turkey with all ingredients listed under "Chard Rolls". Slice around the chard stems in an upside-down "v", 1/3 up the stem. Mold 2-4 spoonfuls of meat and place above the cut "v". Fold chard "wings" over meat and tuck in the sides as you roll up.

5Cook rolls: arrange rolls, loose ends down, in oiled baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

6Make sauce: Mash avocado and mix in next 4 ingredients.

Additional Notes

*The number of chard leaves depends on how large they are. The bigger they are, the more filling you can use!

*For an egg-free option, leave out the egg.
