Green thai turkey sandwich

Green thai turkey sandwich

I’m really into Thai flavours, they’re my newest flavour discovery so I’ve decided to try making something with Thai Green Curry paste but without the reduced fat coconut milk.

I often forget to re-stock so more often than not I have the paste and no coconut milk.

Just as well I loved the end result!

Ingredients for 1 serving

253 g lean turkey breast steaks
7 inch piece of baguette
52 g peppers, sliced
46 g onions, chopped
6 g coconut oil
1 garlic clove, chopped or crushed
1 inch piece of ginger
28 g thai green curry paste
5 ml fish sauce
1 lime, juice only
20 g fresh coriander, chopped
149 g spinach


  • Take a frying pan and put it on a medium heat with the coconut oil.
  • Add the peppers and onion, cook for around 3 or so minutes to soften them.
  • Next add the crushed garlic and grate the ginger into the pan.
  • Cook for another 2 minutes before adding the turkey breast steaks to the pan.
  • Dab the top with half of the Thai green curry paste and put a lid on to cook for 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes turn the meat over, give the vegetables a stir and dab the remaining Thai green curry paste on the other side of the turkey.
  • Let this cook for another few minutes. ┬áThe turkey will be firm the the touch when it’s cooked through, but it should also be really juicy!
  • Add the spinach to the pan to wilt, then add the lime juice and the coriander.
  • Turn the heat off, give everything a good stir and set aside.
  • Slice your baguette in half and start to add half of your veggies as a bottom layer.
  • Take your turkey and carve it into chunks and arrange it on top of the veggies, layer the last of the veggies on top of the turkey.
  • Take the lid and sprinkle the fish sauce directly on to the lid.
  • When you take your first bite, the fish sauce combines with the flavours of the sandwich and it’s will sing in your mouth!!!

Recipe Notes

  • For anyone following older BC plans and are on Cycle 3 – if you don’t have bread in your plan you should enquire to see if you may have it added to your ingredients list. It’s unusual for it to be refused, but check first.
  • Ginger is easier to grate when it’s frozen.
