Turkey with Snow Peas (Frugal Food Thursday)

Happy Thanksgiving!

When you're done eating all that turkey, you'll still need some great recipes to use up the leftovers. Here's one of my favorites - Turkey with Snow Peas!

Here's the recipe:


8 ounces chicken broth
2 tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp. cornstarch
2 tbsp. canola oil
1 bunch scallions, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 carrots, sliced
1 small or 1/2 large green or red pepper, diced
1 lb. leftover turkey, chopped into 1" cubes
4 oz snow peas, strings removed

Make the cooking sauce: In a medium bowl, mix the broth, soy sauce, garlic powder, ginger, and red pepper flakes together.  Set aside.

Make the thickening liquid: In a lidded plastic bowl, put in the water and cornstarch.  Put the lid on the bowl and shake until the cornstarch is thoroughly mixed with the water.  Set aside.

In a large skillet, heat the canola oil over medium-high heat.  Stir fry the scallions for 1 minute.  Add the celery and carrots and continue to cook, stirring often, for 3-4 minutes.  Add the green or red pepper and continue to cook, stirring often, for another 2 minutes.

Add in the cooked leftover turkey and mix together.  Turn heat to high and add cooking sauce. Once the sauce comes to a boil, turn heat down to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes.

Turn heat back to high and add thickening liquid.  Continue to cook, stirring, until the sauce has thickened.  Turn heat back to medium and add snow peas.  Cook for 1 more minute or until snow peas turn bright green.  Remove from heat and serve over a bed of brown rice.

Makes 4 servings.
