Sliced turkey, green and red pepper stir-fry

Ingredients

  • 125g dried egg noodles, medium or fine
  • 1 small orange, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-salt soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 350g skinless turkey breast, cut into strips
  • 5 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 pepper, any colour, deseeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, cut into thin strips
  • 2 celery sticks, thinly sliced
  • 1 handfuls mushrooms (cup or button), sliced
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper

Method

  1. Put the noodles into a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Soak for 6 minutes, or follow the instructions on the packet.

    Information:

    If you prefer, leave out the noodles and cook 150g long grain rice to serve with the stir-fry.

  2. Next, mix together the orange juice, soy sauce and cornflour until smooth. Set to one side. Heat the oil in a wok or very large frying pan.

  3. Add the turkey and stir-fry briskly for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the spring onions, pepper, carrot, celery and mushrooms. Stir-fry over a high heat for another 3 to 4 minutes, until the turkey is cooked. The vegetables should remain crisp and crunchy.

    Information:

    For a vegetarian version, replace the turkey with a 300g pack of firm tofu cut into chunks, or Quorn chicken-style pieces.

  4. Give the orange juice mixture a good stir, then add it to the stir-fry and cook for a few moments until thickened. Drain the noodles well, then add them to the turkey mixture. Serve at once.
