San Choy Bow Recipe

One of my favourite low carb meals packed with veggies is this version of San Choy Bow.  It can get a little messy to eat, but is delicious. The fresh crunch of the lettuce and warm mince are perfect together.

Serves 4


  •  1 zucchini finely diced

  •  1 carrot finely diced

  • 1 cup of mushrooms finely diced
  • 1 packet of turkey or chicken mince 500g
  •  1-2 teaspoons of ginger paste (depending on individual taste)

  • 1-2 teaspoons of garlic paste (depending on individual taste)
  • 1/4 cup spoons of salt reduced soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons of oyster sauce or Hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of Chinese 5 spice
  • 1 onion finely  diced
  • 1/4 of a cabbage thinly sliced
  • 1 Iceberg Lettuce


  • Step 1. In a non-stick pan fry onion, mushrooms and carrot until softened. Add garlic, ginger, 5 spice and mince. Cook until browned.

  • Step 2. Add sauce, zucchini and cabbage. Put the lid on and allow to cook for another 5 minutes until the cabbage has softened.

  • Step 3. peel off several Iceberg lettuce leaves to create a bowl. Spoon mince and veggie mixture in and enjoy!
