Asian Turkey Cabbage Cups – the Perfect Weeknight Meal

Asian turkey cabbage cupsYou are in for a treat today! These Asian turkey cabbage cups are one of our favorites. Don’t let the long list of ingredients fool you, this recipe is super simple to toss together, which is a big part of why I love it! From start to finish it takes about 20 minutes tops. My kids get so excited when they hear we are making these, they can’t get enough!

Yum, yum, yum!

Two quick notes about this recipe. First, this is usually exactly enough to serve our family of 4, with a teeny bit left over for my husband’s lunch the next day. If you have big eaters or are feeding more people, double the recipe.

Second, I love to cook this in a 12-inch cast iron skillet, like this one. It is the perfect size! You can mix all the ingredients right in the skillet, which means only one pan to wash.

    1. Hi Roberta! Right now it’s all through Facebook, but by the end of this month it will all be run through this site. I’ll hang on to your email address and let you know as soon as that’s available!

    1. Thank you! You can use any whole grain pasta, just be sure to check ingredient lists for weird ingredients. Out of all the whole grain pastas, I like brown rice pasta the best.
