30 minute meals are a must in my house and this super easy yet INCREDIBLY tasty Thai turkey stir fry is a family favourite (and for a good reason!).

Lean ground turkey is the base. Next goes in a TON of fresh vegetables - really whatever you have got going on in the fridge which also makes this the perfect clean-out-your-fridge type of meal. All of this comes together with a super savoury and delicious sauce. I like to serve this over rice but also in lettuce wraps for some added veg and crunch. This keeps really well in the fridge for up to 3 days so it makes for some great left overs!

For the stir fry
In a large frying pan, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add in ground turkey and cook for 6-7 minutes or until almost cooked through.
To the ground turkey, add in onion, garlic and ginger. Stir and mix together. Then add in carrots, bell peppers, mushrooms and water chestnuts. Cook over medium heat until tender, about 6-7 minutes more.
Next, add in the sauce and stir to combine. Allow to heat through, about 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat and serve hot over cooked rice or in lettuce wraps. Top with fresh cilantro and chopped peanuts. Enjoy!

Use a whisk to fully combine everything together into a smooth sauce.
Add in any additional hot water until sauce reaches desired consistency.
