Turkey Stir-Fry with Cabbage
Cabbage makes a crunchy alternative to rice in this delicious stir-fry laced with a sweet-savory sauce and packed with flavor. A fabulous solution for busy nights! Chinese five-spice powder is a blend of anise, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and star anise. You can find it on the spice shelf at your local grocery store. —Didi Desjardins, Dartmouth, Massachusetts
