    Preheat oven to 350'F.
  • 2
    In a large saute pan, heat up a tbsp. of oil and add the onion, celery and carrots. Saute for 1 minute. Add the garlic and ground turkey. Stir to break up the meat and cook for 2-3 minutes until the meat is beginning to change colour.
  • 3
    Add the salt, pepper and oregano. Stir in the ketchup, Dijon, tamari and broth. In a small bowl mix the water and arrow root flour together and mix well.
  • 4
    Remove the saute pan from the heat, set aside and let it cool slightly. Lay the thawed sheets out and cut into 8 equal squares. You might have to roll the full sheet a little to make it square.
  • 5
    Put a piece of parchment on your baking sheet and lay the squares onto the parchment and put some of the mixture on each of the 8 squares.
  • 6
    With the beaten egg, lighty paint the edges of the pastry. Fold the pastry over the tilling and seal the edges well. You should have 8 triangles when you're done.
  • 7
    Brush each of the turnovers with more egg and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the pastries are puffed up and golden brown on the outside.
