  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Once hot, add the turkey mince to the pan and fry for 10-12 mins until golden brown and crispy, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon as you go. Add the ginger and garlic to the pan and cook for 1 min. Stir in the honey, soy and chilli sauce and cook for 2 mins.

  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pan of water to the boil, add the noodles and cook following pack instructions. Drain and toss the noodles with the remaining 1 tbsp oil and all the lime juice, then divide between bowls. Top with the crispy turkey mince, carrot, onion and coriander. Serve with extra lime wedges for squeezing over, if you like.

My 19 year old made this for us. Very delicious

Absolutely delicious. I set some aside before adding the chilli sauce for my spice-averse children (replaced with tomato ketchup for them). Three and a half out of four bowls cleaned up!! Just the super fussy one isn’t keen on mince . So nice as an alternative to meatballs, meatloaf, bolognese, etc.

Is it best to use turkey breast or thigh mince?

Hi, You can use either, turkey breast mince will be a little drier. I hope this helps, Lulu

Hi, You can freeze the turkey mince topping but not the noodles. Lulu
