454 gm Ground turkey, lean
2 cup Sweet potato ((230 g) shredded; about 1 large one)
1 cup Swiss chard ((60 g) finely chopped; loosely packed)
1 large egg Egg (whisked)
1 tsp Garlic (minced)
1/2 tsp Ginger, ground
1 pepper(s) Serrano pepper (seeded and minced; optional)
2 green onion (stem) Green onion (thinly sliced)
1 tbsp Curry powder
2 tsp Kosher salt
1 whole lime(s) Lime juice (fresh)
2 tbsp Coconut aminos, Coconut Secret
1/2 cup Apricot jam (preserve) (sweetened with fruit juice)
1/2 tsp minced Ginger root
1 dash Black pepper (freshly ground)
2 tbsp Lemon juice


  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F convection bake or 425° F non-convection bake with the rack in the middle position. Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all the turkey bite ingredients: ground turkey, shredded sweet potatoes, chopped chard leaves, whisked egg, garlic, ginger, serrano pepper (if using), sliced scallions, curry powder, salt, and the zest and juice from one lime.
  3. Using your hands, mix all the ingredients together until well combined, but don’t overwork the mixture.
  4. You can check for seasoning by pinching off a bit of the meat mixture and frying up a tiny patty. Taste it, and adjust the seasoning as needed.
  5. Scoop out heaping tablespoon balls and arrange them on the two lined baking sheets, making sure they sit about 2 inches apart. Smoosh each ball with your fingers into ½-inch thick patties.
  6. Cook one tray in the oven for 15  minutes or until browned on the edges and cooked through, rotating the tray at the midway point. Bake the second tray of patties the same way.
  7. While the bites are baking, make the dipping sauce. In a small saucepan, combine the coconut aminos, apricot jam, and fresh ginger. Stir the sauce over medium heat until simmering.
  8. Remove the pot from the heat, and add the freshly ground black pepper and lemon juice.
  9. Serve the turkey bites with the dipping sauce!
