This is a favourite of mine when I fancy something quick, light and easy but with a bit of an Asian flavour twist.
The dish is packed full of veggies which gives it lots of volume - sometimes it doesn't even fit in my bowl!! Turkey mince is also a great alternative to beef mince if you want something with a lower fat content for a lighter evening meal.
If you've followed me for a while now you'll know I love to use olive oil, but in this dish I've changed things up a bit and used sesame oil instead because it gives the dish an amaaaazing nutty flavour. However, if you don't have any and you don't want to buy any you can just use regular olive oil/butter in the same way :)
Recipe (serves 2)
- 250g turkey mince
- 1 onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 red pepper
- 1 green pepper
- 1 red chilli
- 2 tbsp sweetcorn
- 1/2 courgette

- 2 tbsp tamari (GF)/soy sauce
- 50g vermicelli rice noodles (or basmati rice)
- handful of fresh coriander
- crushed peanuts (optional)
1) Heat oil in a large wok/frying pan. Add all the vegetables and saute for 5 minutes.
2) Add turkey mince to the frying pan and cook until browned, breaking up any lumps with a wooden spoon.
3) Meanwhile, cook the rice noodles according to packet instructions - normally soaked in boiling water for 5 mins.
4) Add noodles, fish sauce and tamari/soy sauce to the pan with the rest of the ingredients. Stir to combine and allow to warm through for about 5 mins.
5) Spoon mixture into bowls (or lettuce cups) and serve with fresh coriander and crushed peanuts (if using).
