Turkey Stir Fry

Hope you all had a great Christmas. I enjoyed the last of my left over turkey yesterday. I made  Turkey Tikka Masala, I will be sharing the recipe in my next post. Today  I thought I’d share an adaptation of a chicken stir fry recipe I got from a workmate several years ago. I decided to use left over turkey breast this time round and it worked at treat.


Turkey Stir Fry

It is also such a quick and healthy meal. You can make it faster that you can walk or drive to your local Chinese to order, and best of all, you know what has gone into it and costs far less.


To make it you will need:

  • Handful of cashew nuts (about 100g)
  • Oil for frying
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • small knob of ginger very finely chopped/ grated
  • 2 bell peppers
  • 1 carrot
  • 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
  • 2-3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • Left over turkey breast
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Spring onions, chopped
  • noodles to serve with

Prepare your vegetables and set aside. I like to julienne them. Cook noodles according to instructions on packet then

  1. Dry roast the cashew nuts in a hot stir fry pan/ wok. Set aside
  2. Heat oil in your pan and fry the carrots first for about 2 minutes (they go in first as they take a little longer to cook than the peppers). Add peppers, garlic and ginger and fry for a further minute or 2
  3. Pour in Soy sauce, Hoisin sauce, water and cooked turkey. Heat through
  4. Drain cooked noodles and toss together with the turkey, vegetables and roasted cashew nuts. Garnish with Spring onion

Have a blessed 2013 and I look forward to sharing loads more from my Kitchen
