We love using mince in our cooking, it’s normally a pretty cheap option and it’s just ridiculously versatile. Normally it’s beef, lamb or even pork mince we’re using and it makes its way into ragu, burgers, enchiladas and meatballs.

Recently we decided to mix things up a bit by getting some turkey mince instead and serving it in a yummy udon noodle stir fry full of Szechuan pepper kick and soy and miso umami.

I love fresh, light meals like this.

I also love eating them when it’s not below freezing outside. Which is unfortunately not the situation I’m in right now. We are having some horrible weather right now and it has made me supremely sad. Battling through blizzards just to get to work is really not fun.

And I know that British people are notoriously wimpy about snow but it is extreme right now. AND IT’S MARCH, how is this happening?!

Anyway, enough weather talk, let’s move onto more interesting things like udon noodle stir fries and spicy, peanutty turkey mince. Does that make you as happy as it makes me?

How to Make Udon Noodle Stir Fry with Turkey Mince:

  • Crush your Szechuan peppercorns in a pestle and mortar (I use this one) before starting.
  • If you can’t be bothered to peel and crush your garlic and ginger then feel free to use a paste, no judgement here! I’ve been using this brand recently and liking it 😇
  • We used turkey thigh mince for this recipe because it has a bit more flavour while still being the lean and healthy meat you can count on from turkey.
  • While your turkey mince cooks simply whisk together all your sauce ingredients and set aside until ready to use. If you want to make this dish even quicker you could prep the sauce ahead of time and store in the fridge.
  • Don’t skip the lime and chopped peanut for serving, they add such a great zing and crunch to the finished dish.
