Great meal for after Thanksgiving to use up leftover turkey. Very simple meal. This was one of my favorites as a child. Serve over rice or chow mein noodles.

Directions

  1. Whisk soy sauce, sugar, and cornstarch together in a bowl until smooth; stir turkey into cornstarch mixture and set aside for 15 minutes to marinate.
  2. Heat a large skillet over high heat and pour vegetable oil into the hot skillet, coating the bottom. Stir broccoli and carrots into the hot oil to combine; pour chicken broth into the vegetables and cover skillet. Cook until carrots start to become tender, about 2 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to medium. Stir turkey and sauce into vegetables; cook and stir until heated through and the sauce has thickened, 1 minute. Stir mushrooms into turkey and vegetables until combined.

This was a refreshing change from the standard turkey leftover options- which is why I tried it. That said, I'd prefer a little more flavour and a little less sugar. I'll try adding a nice dose of fresh chopped garlic and ginger and reducing the sugar to 1 tablespoon the next time if I have left over turkey on hand. It might also be nice with real black bean sauce too (fermented black beans mashed with minced garlic and ginger) Note: Instructions don't mention what to do with the onions - I sauteed mine before adding the veggies and the stock to the pan.

This was wonderful to my surprise and such a nice change to the traditional high calorie leftover recipes. I served it over rice. The only change I made was to add cashews after plating to add some crunch. THIS IS A KEEPER.

Great, easy recipe. I added a dash of soy sauce and a pinch of garlic powder at the very end to boost the flavour. Drizzled a very small amount of that peanut sauce on the top. Delicious! I will definitely make this again and play around with different flavours.
