An easy, 5-ingredient Whole30 Dinner!
Cook Time20 mins


  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt, or more to taste
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper, or more to taste
  • 12 ounces green beans (snipped and cleaned)
  • 1 tbsp Yellowbird Sriracha Sauce (be sure to get the one without sugar added)
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos (I like Big Tree Farm Brand)
  • 1/2 cup packed basil leaves


  • Heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat with avocado and toasted sesame oil. When hot, add the ground turkey, salt, and pepper and cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, until cooked through (no longer pink), 5 to 7 minutes. When cook through, set heat on low and keep warm while you prepare the green beans.
  • Meanwhile, bring a large skillet of water to a boil. Once boiling, add the green beans and cook for 3 minutes. Transfer the par-cooked green beans to a bowl of ice water to shock the green beans and lock in the green color.
  • Increase the heat in the wok back up to medium-high heat. Drain and transfer the green beans to the wok and cook, tossing often, until tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the sriracha, coconut aminos, and basil leaves and cook 2 more minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!

    I’ve never had a meal where the basil is played so well into the dish! This is a rockstar recipe, Alex!! Honestly, I didn’t feel like taking the extra step of shocking the green beans, but I am so happy my fiancé made me lol it not only preserved the beautiful color, but allowed the green beans to cook properly and still have that “snap” when finally eating at the table. 10/10
