Method

  1. Heat half the oil in a wok or frying pan. Add the eggs, swirl to coat the base of the pan and allow to set to an omelette, flip and cook for 1-2 mins. Once cooked, remove, shred and set aside. Add the remaining oil to the pan, then stir-fry the chilli, if using, and spring onions for 1 min.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and the egg, and heat through, stirring, until piping hot. Serve immediately with some extra soy and sweet chilli sauce, if you like.

Quick & easy to prepare. Good flavours. Replaced peas with sweetcorn because of fussy daughter, either or both would work well.

Very nice. Thanks to Pewtersfood's comment, I used half the amount of soy sauce - I wouldn't have wanted it any saltier.

We didn't have any cooked rice, so in case it helps anyone, 150g of dry long grain rice (not quick cook) makes about 300g when cooked (doubles in weight and triples in volume).

I kept the greenest bits of the spring onions and sprinkled them on top along with some Japanese 7-spice (shichimi togarashi).

Best and so far easiest way EVER to use the huge amount of left over Turkey...all of us had a feast, even my 8 year old who's normally very picky eat some of it *wohooo

Just far too salty - not sure where I went wrong.
