Baby Bok Choy
- ½ pound ground turkey, beef or chicken
- 1 small carrot, shredded
- 1 baby Bok Choy stalk, chopped
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh ginger
- 1 garlic clove, chopped
- 1 teaspoon minced dry onion
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
- 1 tablespoon Teriyaki sauce
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 package of large won ton wrappers (used for egg rolls)
What You Will Need:
- A large mixing bowl

- Measuring spoons
- A chopper
- A vegetable peeler
- A cutting board or mat
- Baking sheet
- Cooking spray
- Cooking shears
- Oven mitts
- A skillet
- Pre-heat the oven to 425°
- In a skillet, brown the ground turkey over medium heat until it is no longer pink, breaking the meat up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Set aside to cool.
- Peel the skin off the ginger with a vegetable peel.
- Put the spatula over the garlic gloves and give it a whack with the palm of your hand. This should break the skin of the garlic making it easy to peel.

- Place about 1 teaspoon of the mixture in the center of the won ton
- Starting with the point facing you, carefully and gently bring the point of the wrapper up over the mixture
- Then fold in one side, then the other; it should look like an envelope
- Holding the sides, tuck and roll the egg roll and place it on a baking sheet, open end down
- Spray lightly with cooking spray
- Repeat with the rest of the wrappers
- Bake for 12-14 minutes
