These delicious rolls will make your party a hit! They're super creative, satisfying, and are such a fun presentation. The dipping sauce comes together in minutes and features apricot preserves, rice vinegar, honey, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, and crushed red pepper flakes for a touch of heat. Roll up the savory filling of warmed turkey, mixed vegetables, and bok choy in phyllo sheets, then let the rolls bake in the oven until golden, which takes just about 15 minutes. It's definitely one of the most interesting ways to serve ground turkey, and you'll love having one of these rolls hanging out in the fridge for a quick and easy lunch.

Low sodium soy sauce

Instructions

  1. To make the sauce, combine the preserves, vinegar, honey, 2 teaspoons of the ginger, the garlic, 1 teaspoon of the sesame oil, and the crushed red pepper in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate.
  2. To make rolls, heat canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey and brown, about 6 minutes. Add vegetables and bok choy. Cook, stirring until tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in soy sauce, water, remaining 2 teaspoons ginger and 1 teaspoon sesame oil, and the sugar. Cook 5 minutes. Let cool.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick spray. Place one sheet of phyllo with the short side facing you on a work surface. Lightly spray the phyllo sheet with nonstick spray. Then fold it in half lengthwise. Place 1⁄2 cup of the filling in the center of the bottom end of the phyllo. Fold in the sides then roll up to completely enclose the filling. Place the roll, seam-side down, on the baking sheet. Lightly spray the roll with nonstick spray. Repeat with remaining phyllo and filling to make 8 rolls. Bake until light golden, 15–20 minutes. Serve with the dipping sauce. Yields 1 roll with 2 tablespoons dipping sauce per serving.
