Rice Noodles with Turkey

Fried rice is a great vehicle for virtually any leftover. This dish is like fried rice, only it’s made with rice noodles. Otherwise, the theory is the same. Change the proportions of noodles, vegetables and meat as you prefer.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. When it boils, add rice noodles and remove from heat.

Put 3 tablespoon of oil in a wok or wide skillet set over high heat. When oil thins and is very hot, add broccoli and red pepper and cook, stirring, about 2 minutes, just to soften a little. Stir broth and cornstarch and add to pan along with fish sauce, soy sauce, rice wine and hot sauce. Drain noodles in a colander and add to pan along with turkey. Toss to coat all with sauce.

Scrape noodles onto platter. Add the last tablespoon of oil to the pan, heat and add eggs and salt. Stir to scramble, still over high heat. Scatter cooked eggs over noodles and sprinkle with green onions.
