Endive Spears Stuffed with Teriyaki Turkey, Edamame & Baby Corn Recipe {Giveaway}

Endive-Spears-Stuffed-with-Teriyaki-Turkey-Edamame-&-Baby-Corn-Recipe-Cookin-Canuck

Within minutes of walking in the door after school, my kids are asking, “What’s for dinner?” (Talk about pressure!) If the answer involves any combination of teriyaki sauce, edamame or baby corn, I am greeted with a loud, “Yes!” and a couple of fist pumps. Typically these ingredients are combined to make Baked Teriyaki Turkey Meatballs, but I thought I’d try something a little different this time. It was time to introduce the fist-pumpers to endive.

I feel pretty lucky because my boys are very good vegetable eaters. That is, unless we’re talking about vegetables with leaves…lettuce, spinach, endive. So, my expectation weren’t high for this little experiment. My kids saw me cook with endive when I prepared French Onion & Endive Soup with Pancetta and Rice Noodle Salad with Endive, Shrimp & Soy-Ginger Sauce, but those dishes weren’t enough to make them permanent passengers on the endive train.

Endive Spears Stuffed with Teriyaki Turkey, Edamame & Baby Corn Recipe

I started with some ground turkey which I mixed with edamame, a homemade teriyaki sauce and baby corn. The baby corn gets my kids every time. Hook, line and sinker. I piled the fresh endive leaves in front of the boys and let them at it. This was the real test.

Endive Spears Stuffed with Teriyaki Turkey, Edamame & Baby Corn Recipe

What did the boys think? I think the pictures speak for themselves, but I’ll tell you that they adored the crunchy leaves filled with all of their favorite ingredients. My husband was out of town when I made this for the boys. My 7-year old said, “Mum, I think we should save some of the leftovers for Dad so he can taste this. He’s really going to like it!” The endive train has left the station, with a couple of new passengers.

Details about the giveaway can be found below the last photo.

The recipe:

The sauce:
In a small saucepan, combine rice vinegar, brown sugar, water, soya sauce, 1/4 cup canola oil, flour, ginger and garlic.. Whisk the sauce together and place over medium heat. Simmer until the sauce is slightly thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Keep warm.

The turkey:
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground turkey and cook, crumbling with a wooden spoon, until turkey is cooked through. Pour off any drippings.

Cook the edamame according to package instructions. Drain, rinse with cold water and shell the edamame, discarding the pods.

Stir the edamame, water chesnuts, baby corn and red bell pepper into the cooked ground turkey. Reduce heat to medium and cook until everything heated through.

Pour about 3/4 of the teriyaki sauce over the turkey mixture and stir to combine. Taste and add additional sauce, if desired.

Serve the turkey mixture with the Belgian endive. Allow everyone to scoop the turkey mixture into the endive spears. Eat with your hands!

I want to get on the endive train!! And put the whole fam on it, too. This looks fantastic and like it won’t hang around like a rock all night when I have an early run the next morning. Btw, I turned a runner I’m starting to coach again after a layoff onto CC to help her wake up her healthy dinner routine. She’s a half-marathoner and she’s really going to appreciate your creativity, like I do. :)
