I often turn to stir-fries when I am in a hurry to make dinner. This recipe uses turkey, which for many isn't the obvious choice, but it is better value than chicken and very low in fat. Using hoisin, rather than soy, sauce is a good way to keep down the salt content.

Method
  1. To make the sauce, combine the hoisin sauce, ketchup, vinegar, garlic and ginger in a small bowl. Set aside for later use.
  2. Warm the oil in a wok or large frying pan over a high heat. Add the turkey and stir until browned on all sides. Then add the broccoli and mushrooms and stir for 2 minutes. Add the pak choi and noodles, and stir for a further 1 minute.
  3. Pour the sauce into the pan and mix thoroughly, coating all the ingredients. Reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 3–4 minutes until piping hot and the turkey is cooked through.
  4. Scatter the spring onions on top (optional) and serve immediately.
Instead of turkey, try chicken, prawns or tofu in this recipe. For extra spice, add a pinch of chilli flakes to the sauce.
