Delicious leftover turkey stir fry seasons the turkey with tasty Asian-style sauce. Boring leftover turkey is thus transformed into a new, fabulous dish!
Servings 4 servings
- 1 lb. leftover white turkey meat, skinless (dark meat is fine too)
- 1 lb. package frozen chopped vegetables (I used a mix of broccoli, cauliflower and carrots)
- 3 tablespoon light soy sauce (or use a gluten-free alternative and add salt as needed)
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons refined coconut oil or avocado oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped (6 oz)
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon minced ginger root
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon sesame seeds for garnish
Slice the turkey meat into strips. Set aside.
Place the frozen vegetables in a large, microwave-safe bowl. Add 2 tablespoons water, cover and microwave 3 minutes. Stir, cover again, and microwave 2 more minutes or until just tender. Drain and set aside.
Prepare the sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, red pepper flakes and cornstarch. Set aside.
In a large, deep skillet, heat the coconut oil over medium-high heat, about 2 minutes. Add the onions and cook, stirring often, until translucent but not browned, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, 30 seconds.
Add the turkey meat, the vegetables and the sauce. Cook, stirring, until everything is well-coated and sauce thickens, about 2 minutes.
Off heat, drizzle with the sesame oil and sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
