Larb Gai is delicious, and is an easy recipe, too. It’s naturally low-fat and low-carb, and full of all kinds of vitamins, but with none of the nasty amines that get you down. I like to make it and pack it (dressing separate) for lunches. Undressed, the Larb Gai will keep for a few days while you eat away at it. This Larb Gai recipe also excludes fish sauce, avoiding fish and shellfish allergies, as well as amines. Enjoy!
1 lb ground chicken or turkey
2 Tbsp safflower oil
1 small red onion
1/2 small or medium head green cabbage
1 package mint (leaves only)
1/2 cucumber
1 bunch radishes
1 bunch cilantro
2 Tbsp rice
1 lime
1/2 tsp salt
Larb Gai Dressing:
2 limes
1 Tbsp pomegranate juice or blueberry juice
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
1 Tbsp garlic, minced
1 – 2 Tbsp Serrano peppers, minced
  • In a dry pan, toast rice. When lightly browned, use a food processor to grind it as small as possible. The toasted rice powder (khao koor) will help thicken up the meat juices.

  • In a large pan, cook meat over medium heat with oil, breaking it up into small pieces as it cooks.

  • When meat is cooled, add to Larb Gai salad and toss together.
  • In a small jar or bowl, mix together all Larb Gai Dressing ingredients. Mix until sugar and salt are dissolved.
  • Depending on how many people you are feeding, use all the Larb Gai Dressing and toss well, or pull aside the portion you want to serve, mix in an appropriate amount of dressing, and toss well. Larb Gai will not keep as well once it has been dressed, so keep the dressing separate if you plan on saving it for later.
  • Serve, garnished with mint leaves and a dash of cayenne or red chili flakes over the top for color (optional).

  6. I’m excited to try this! It is not easy to find recipes that I can cook in Japan. It looks like a great meal for the soon to be deathly hot weather here.

    • Where in Japan are you? Also, if you have any favorite Japanese recipes you’d like to turn amine-free, let me know and I will work on them and blog it. I’m half Japanese, so have a serious affinity for Japanese food. 🙂

      • Chiba prefecture. I can’t think of anything at the moment, but I will keep it in mind. I really enjoy your soy sauce and sesame oil substitutes. They’re great for making Japanese meals allergy-friendly!

        • Thanks, and I’m so glad you enjoy them! If you have suggestions for any recipes or substitutes you’d like to see, do let me know. ❤
