What you need
1 Tablespoon arrowroot starch
3 Tablespoons water
1 Tablespoon coconut oil
6 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced, greens and whites separated
2 Tablespoons fresh ginger, minced
1 Tablespoon fresh garlic, minced
1 lb ground chicken
½ cup bean sprouts, roughly chopped
10 drops liquid stevia
2 Tablespoons coconut aminos
1 teaspoon Sriracha (more as desired)
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
handful of large lettuce leaves
1. In a small bowl combine the arrowroot starch and water. Set aside.
2. In a large skillet or wok, place the coconut oil over medium high heat. Add the scallion whites, ginger and garlic and stir-fry until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the chicken and stir-fry, breaking it into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, about 8 minutes.
3. Add the bean sprouts, stevia, coconut aminos, and Sriracha. Stir the arrowroot starch mixture and add it to the pan, mixing until it thickens. Add the scallion greens and season to taste with the sesame oil.
4. Serve the chicken in large lettuce leaves topped with fresh cilantro and more Sriracha. Enjoy!
