I’m on a quest to expand my repertoire of family meals. My kids (6 and 8) are fussy eaters – in particular they don’t like things mixed together. As a result we eat alot of meat and 2 veg. Or fish and 2 veg. Or chicken and 2 veg. You get the picture. It’s really boring for the adults. So I’m trying a broccoli and turkey stirfry this weekend. Because they like noodles. And turkey. And broccoli… It’s super simple but should be quite tasty too.

We shall see!

Here’s the recipe…

Turkey and Broccoli Stirfry

What you need:

  • 100g black rice noodles
  • 200g turkey fillet, chopped
  • 500g broccoli, diced into florets
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 tbsp. soy or tamari sauce
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. grated ginger
  • 2 tbsp. spring onion, chopped
  • handful coriander, to serve

What you need to do:

Cook the noodles according to the instructions on the packaging. Strain and rinse with cold water, then set aside.

In a wok or deep pan heat the olive oil and fry the turkey for about 3-4 minutes. Add in the broccoli florets and fry for another 1-2 minutes. Next, pour half a cup of water and 3 tbsp. of soy sauce, then cook until all the water evaporates and the broccoli is tender (about 10 mins).

In the meantime, mix together the remaining soy sauce, sesame oil, vinegar, grated ginger, and mix well.

Once turkey and broccoli are ready, add in the earlier cooked noodles and heat it for a 2 – 3 minutes. Take off the heat, pour in the sauce and gently mix.

Serve with chopped spring onions and coriander leaves. (Yeah – I won’t be doing that for the kids!)
