  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
  • 1 pound ground turkey breast

Preparation

  1. Place tofu in a single layer on several layers of paper towels; cover with additional paper towels. Let stand 30 minutes, pressing down occasionally.
  2. Combine salt, white pepper, and turkey in a large bowl. Combine hoisin, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, cornstarch, pepper, and garlic in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.
