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.

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. Read More

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 pretty easy to make and came out super yummy. My partner definitely liked it and I will probably have to double up on the ingredients next time (to have some leftovers.). I omitted the onions and I think next time I might add some snap peas or bell peppers. Read More

Relatively easy to make and quick-to-fix during a busy week. We served it up using our leftover stuffing as the "rice" underneath. What a delightful mix. Serve with a side of cranberries to get that slight bit of sweetness which compliments the saltiness of the soy sauce. Makes great for a heavy serving for two and then something leftover for the next day at lunch. Read More

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. Read More

Thank you so much for posting this recipe. My family absolutely loved it!!! I didn't have chicken broth so I used a tub of knorr mixed in a cup of water I also did not use mushrooms. My husband and my daughter went for thirds. I am not a cook and this recipe is amazing and was not difficult. Read More

I'm in love with this! have made it twice in a week. The only changes I made was to increase the liquids as I added cooked noodles directly to the stir fry (I didn't want it too dry) and added kale because I had it. This is an awesome way to use leftover turkey. Also you can make it as spicy as you like. Read More
