• 125g medium egg noodles
• Juice of 1 small orange
• 1 tablespoon soy sauce
• 1 tablespoon cornflour
• 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
• 350g turkey stir-fry strips
• 1 bunch spring onions, thinly sliced
• 1 red or yellow pepper, deseeded and thinly sliced
• 1 large carrot, cut into thin strips
• 2 celery sticks, thinly sliced
• 100g mushrooms, sliced
• Ground black pepper
1. Put the noodles into a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Soak for 6 minutes, or follow the pack instructions.
2. Next, mix together the orange juice, soy sauce and cornflour until smooth. Set to one side.
3. Heat the oil in a wok or very large frying pan. Add the turkey and stir-fry briskly for 3-4 minutes. Add the spring onions, pepper, carrot, celery and mushrooms. Stir-fry over a high heat for another 3-4 minutes, until the turkey is cooked. The vegetables should remain crisp and crunchy.
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 thoroughly, then add them to the turkey mixture. Serve immediately.
Tip 1: If you prefer, leave out the noodles and cook 150g long grain rice to serve with the stir-fry.
