This Spicy Thai Basil Ground Turkey will rival your favorite Thai takeout but is made at home with healthier ingredients and ready in less time than it takes to order take-out. Plus it's low carb, Whole30 friendly, Paleo and gluten-free.
Here's a really easy Thai dish that you can make in less than 20 minutes! The other night we were both really craving take-out after a particularly stressful work day and decided to make the healthier choice is make some kind of takeout at home. I was craving Thai so I was planning on making these Thai Basil Beef Bowls but quickly realized I was all out of ground beef. Luckily I had some ground turkey in the freezer and whipped up this quick turkey version instead. And it came out amazing. The sauce is savory and spicy and the Thai basil adds just the right amount of freshness to the dish. Everything is finished with some fresh lime juice. Normally I serve it over this cauliflower coconut rice, which is delicious. You could also reach for lettuce wraps, brown rice, or quinoa.
