I love quick easy meals and after posting my Quick Healthy Breakfast recipe a while back, I decided I wanted to start sharing some more healthy recipes with you all. I don't know about you, but I personally love a quick dinner, I'm far too impatient to wait around for ages for something to cook. Unless it's sweet potato fries in which case I'll wait forever as they taste so darn amazing (post coming soon)
This noodle dish is Brent's concoction of goodies and we've been eating it for about 6 months now, it tastes amazing and fills you up all evening. They take roughly 15 minutes altogether. At the end of this post I have written all the benefits of the ingredients and what you could do to make it even more healthy.
You will need -
Dash of oil
Ready to Wok noodles
2 small carrots OR 1 large
2 small spring onions
Half a pepper (colour of your choice)
Courgette (the amount is up to you)
Dark soy sauce
Cut up turkey
Cut up all vegetables leaving skin on the carrots.
Put a dash of oil into a wok and start by cooking all the turkey through. Make sure this is cooked properly.
Once the turkey is cooked, add all the vegetables, 2 pinches of chilli flakes (more if you like) and lots of ground pepper, as much soy sauce as you like and roughly a tablespoon of boiled water. The water will just add a bit more moisture into the wok for the noodles.
Don't let the vegetables sit for too long as the crunchier they are the better!
Once everything is in, put the noodles into the pan and mix all the ingredients together. If you want to add more soy sauce at this point you can, we always add a dash more.
Once the noodles are in, just mix everything together for about 2 minutes so that the noodles can go soft.
And serve!! Simple as that, it's so quick and easy.
Starting off, the noodles are straight to wok ones for time saving benefits but if you want a healthier choice, you can buy whole wheat noodles but they will have to be cooked first which will add 10 minutes onto this recipe.
Vegetables are always great for you but if you want extra fibre, leave the skins on the carrots. You can easily achieve your 5-a-day buy adding a few more vegetables. If you suffer from bloating, steer clear of broccoli in this dish though. Although it tastes amazing, I suffered with bloating after this meal but once I took the broccoli out, I have been absolutely fine.
Turkey is great as it's very lean and high in protein. Because of the low fat content, it cooks a lot quicker than chicken as well.
I hope you have enjoyed this recipe and if you make it, let me know what you think. Brent and I eat this about 2-3 times a week and I can't get enough of it!
Will you be cooking this dish? Let me know how you got on!
