Almost any combination of ingredients rolled up in lettuce or toasted sheets of nori or homemade flatbread, etc.My favorite pita bread recipe is here and can easily be made with kamut or spelt flour instead of regular flour:

Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type A (7 beneficials)
  • Type AB (7 beneficials)
  • Type B (5 beneficials)
  • Type O (4 beneficials)

  • Entree


  • 1 cup tahini or 2 cups cooked beans
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (omit if using tahini)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Juice of 2 lemons, or to taste
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt to taste

  • 12 ounces cooked turkey breast or desired meat, diced
  • 2 carrots, cleaned or peeled and grated
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 cup of sprouts (optional)

    A's and O non-secretors can add:
  • 2 avocados, halved and diced then scoop out with spoon

    Non-secretors, AB's and O's can add:
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped

    Other ingredient ideas depending on type:
  • slightly steamed or parboiled broccoli florettes,
  • diced red bell pepper,
  • grated zuccini or summer squash,
  • feta,
  • chopped spinach or parsley

How to make it:
  1. If starting with uncooked skinless boneless turkey breast - slice off some pieces and cook in oil about 5 minutes per side until internal temperature of 170 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Dust with tumeric powder as it cooks, if desired.

    Prepare sauce:

  3. Using blender, combine all ingredients to make a smooth sauce.
  4. Thin with additional water, as needed.
  5. Taste and adjust seasonings.

    Serving Suggestions

  6. I offer each ingredient in a small bowl for each person to make their own roll-up. These can be quite messy!
  7. I like to mix a small amount of sauce with the turkey before serving.
  8. These are especially good with the nori as a wrap.
