Easy Turkey Lo Mein
I am a high energy person, and I love to see a messy room transform into an organized space. My need for order and simplicity stems from my ADHD disability as a way to compensate for my short attention span. So my gifts and my challenges are all ironically tied together to create who I am.
This one-pot supper hits every single mark, it is easy, healthy, delicious, and inexpensive. It is an all-time family favorite in my house. I have probably made it 30 times over the years! It takes 17 minutes to make, stovetop to table.
Start by adding sesame oil and garlic to the pan and then add sesame seed, seasoning packets from ramen, and ground turkey. Cook until no longer pink. Meanwhile, cook ramen according to package directions, reserving seasoning packets for turkey.
I use Nissin ramen noodles in this recipe because the ramen is firmer than other brands. I also pre-cut the onions and cilantro and gather all other ingredients prior to adding the cabbage to the meat because once the cabbage is added, it cooks very quickly.
Once the turkey is browned, add the vegetables, ramet, and soy sauce. Cook until vegetables are just crisp-tender. Use caution not to overcook, as the ramen and veggies can become soggy quickly. Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro just before serving.
