Turkey Stir Fry with Brown Rice: Feed Four for 67p a Head
This turkey fried rice with egg recipe is really simple and quick to cook, and is perfect for all your leftover Christmas turkey.
I use frozen vegetables as they’re cheap and means I don’t have to chop, and chuck everything in together and just add the rice right at the end.
It takes about ten minutes to cook and can be left to its own devices.
This was inspired by our leftover turkey recipes which are all made from Christmas dinner leftovers. The rest of the items are from our cupboard. These are the stable food items that we keep in stock.

You can add as many different vegetables as you like. You can add carrot, sprint onions or any red cabbage. Add any vegetables you have laying around or that you know the kids will eat.
Why not try white rice instead of brown or noodles? Try adding a touch of dried ginger or some chilli flakes if you don’t mind it hot.

- Handful Turkey or whatever meat or substitute you have
- 2 Eggs
- 250g Rice
- 60g Frozen Peas
- 2 tsp Soy Sauce
- 100g frozen onion
- 100g frozen peppers
- Get the rice cooking first. 75g per adult is how much I use, and bit less for the kids. So for four of us, it’s 250g, but however much you like will work.
- Use three times as much water as rice, as it sucks it up while cooking. Let it boil and add the rice.
- Bring the rice to the boil then leave it on low for about 15 minutes or in till the rice is soft.
- While the rice is cooking, add a tiny bit of oil and stir fry the frozen onion, peppers, and peas for about 1 minute.
- Add the turkey and heat through, checking it’s piping hot. Add the eggs, and with a fork, keep whisking around, in till it starts to cook like an omelette, but in tiny pieces.
- Once everything is cooked, add the rice, and stir through, making sure the egg pieces and turkey are scattered throughout the dish.
- Add the soy sauce, stir then serve when hot.
- This is a really easy dish that can be done is you’re in a rush. It uses a lot of staple ingredients too and can be used with any meat. Win!
