Turkey and Miso Stir Fry with Courgetti

turkey and miso stir fry with courgetti

Stir fries make a really good weekday dinner, you can easily make batches and have leftovers for lunch the next day! This turkey and miso stir fry with courgetti is so fresh and easy to make plus it can be ready in 20 minutes. If you want a more filling meal you could always use gluten free noodles instead of courgetti, I like my stir fries with buckwheat or rice noodles.

I love using eggs in my recipes, especially adding them to stir fries as it adds extra protein to dish. The average egg contains between 5 and 6 grams of protein! They are also high in essential vitamins and minerals including B12 which is believed to help improve tiredness and fatigue. If you would rather not use eggs it tastes just as good without.
