I'm entering a BritMums competition sponsored by www.leanonturkey.co.uk (click here for more details of the compo) with my family-friendly, fast but yummy recipe using turkey mince. This recipe is suitable for the whole family, including babies (just puree for young babies who cannot deal with lumps). If you are worried about allergies, use olive oil instead of sesame oil.
|A tasty and fast family meal: turkey mince stir-fry|
Chinese-style turkey mince stir-fry
Serves 4 accompanied by rice. Suitable for freezing.
You will need:
4 tablespoons sesame oil (or other oil)
1 onion, finely chopped
1 red pepper, seeded and finely chopped
2 carrots, peeled and diced
6 broccoli florets, finely chopped (keep one for garnish if you wish)
100g lean turkey mince
2 tablespoons tomato puree
1 tablespoon of dark soy sauce
80ml vegetable stock (made with half a stock cube and 80ml of hot water)
1. Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan and stir-fry the onion, pepper, carrots and broccoli for around five minutes.
2. Add the mince and continue to stir-fry for around seven minutes or until the mix is completely cooked through and soft. If your mix dries up while cooking, just add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water.
3. Take off the heat. Mix the tomato puree and soy sauce into the stock and pour into the pan or wok. Cook for 1 minute. Serve with rice. Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy as my daughter likes to say!
