Spicy and filling but still low carb. These won't wreck your diabetic meal plan.


1 pound ground turkey; browned and crumbled
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves Garlic; minced
1/4 cup Onion; chopped
1/4 cup Raisins; chopped fine
1/2 cup Celery; chopped fine
1/4 cup Carrot; shredded
1/2 cup Broccoli Slaw; chopped
1 tablespoon Curry Powder; Hot, to taste
1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon Flour
1/4 cup Lemon juice
8 6-inch Low Carb Tortillas
1/2 cup Low Carb Fruit Chutney
1/4 cup Unsweetened coconut; for garnish
1/2 teaspoon Black pepper; coarse ground

Original recipe makes 8 Servings



Brown, crumble and drain the turkey. Set aside.

In a large pan heat 1 tbs oil then saute the garlic, onion, raisins, and celery until quite tender. Then add the carrot and broccoli slaw. While that is cooking prepare the sauce.

In a small pan mix together the curry powder, 1 tsp olive oil, salt, pepper, and flour. Stir over low heat until a paste is formed. Then add the lemon juice, stirring constantly. Continue stirring over heat until mixture thickens and forms a smooth, brown sauce. Allow sauce to simmer for 2 minutes while you mix the turkey with the sauteed vegetables. Finally add the sauce to the meat/vegetable mixture and stir to evenly coat everything. The mixture should be dry with all the sauce being absorbed or coating the other ingredients.

Allow mixture to simmer a few minutes while you warm the tortillas and prepare the plates.

For each wrap place a tortilla on a place. Spoon in the curry filling and roll up the tortilla. Place about a teaspoon of Low Carb Chutney on top and sprinkle lightly with coconut. Garnish with a few chopped cilantro or parsley leaves.

Serve on a bed of broccoli slaw or shredded cabbage.

Really good! Crowd favorite! Would thin out the sauce a little to coat meat and veggies a little more evenly.

Very nice. Easy to make. I've tweaked the recipe a bit but its great.

Somewhat easy to make. I made it with hot curry powder. I also put the chutney on the tortilla prior to putting the meat on there. Good stuff.

So yummy and super easy!! I swapped the lemon juice for chicken broth since my hubby doesn't like that much lemon. Can't wait to try it again when I have coconut!

The chutney completes this dish for sure. I enjoyed making it and eating it. Even took a picture :D

Nice twist on a classic, simple but tasty!

This is such an excellent recipe. I have tweaked it for different peoples tastes ... it is wonderful with limes instead of lemons and good with a bit of chicken bouillon and cayenne added. I have also made this without the meat and it tasty as a vegetarian dish.

They are good, but really lemony. We'll back off the lemon next time, but they are definitely worth repeating!

Thank you for the wonderful recipe! I used leftover turkey breast and didn't have fruit chutney on hand, it was still delicious.
