Turkey Ramen Stir-fry


Turkey Ramen Stir-fry


Do you love stir-fried noodles? We do! This is quick and easy, light and packed with veggies. The mixture of fish sauce, soy and sesame seed oil is all you need to flavor this dish. It's full of herbs and aromatics and topped with black and white sesame seeds. I've used ground turkey to make it light but ground pork or chicken would be tasty too.

Our local market doesn't regularly carry bean shoots or enoki mushrooms but I picked them up at an Asian market when I was in Portland recently. They are very light, almost sweet in flavor and blend into the bean shoots and noodles beautifully. If you don't have any Asian produce near you then substitute whatever mushrooms you can find and leave out the bean shoots. It'll still be yummy!


I like to use peanut oil when I stir-fry if I can because it holds up to higher temperatures.

The sauce is a simple mixture of fish sauce and soy sauce with a tablespoon of sesame oil. Stir them together before adding to the stir fry to evenly coat the dish with the flavors.

Top with chopped cilantro and diced Serrano pepper.


Toss to incorporate and dig in!


Isn't this just gorgeous?


After plating up I sprinkled on some black and white sesame seeds. Yum!


Eat this ramen stir fry the next day as a cold noodle salad or add some broth to make a soup. Try my recipe for Quick Turkey Ramen Pho.
