Thai spiced turkey, a vegetable red Thai curry & zoodles

It’s been ages since I’ve made a Thai curry and I wanted to make it a little differently to how I would normally.

Hope you like it!

Ingredients for 1 serving

267 g turkey breast steak
95 g mushrooms, sliced
95 g courgette
39 g sesame seeds
1 lime, slice
1 tsp Thai 7 spice mix
6 g coconut oil
28 g Thai red curry paste
43 ml reduced fat coconut milk
149 g mange tout
salt and pepper

Method

  • Pre-heat your oven to 190°C fan/400°F and line a baking sheet with non stick foil.
  • Arrange the turkey breast onto the baking sheet and sprinkle both sides with the Thai 7 spice seasoning.
  • Bake in the oven until cooked, it will be firm to the touch when it is cooked through and rest it.
  • To make your zoodles, take a courgette and cut it in half lengthways.
  • Using a teaspoon carefully scrape out the centre of the courgette so that you’re left with the firm outer flesh.
  • Take a potato peeler and run it down the length of one side of the courgette to make ribbons or zoodles.
  • Continue to do this until you have enough for the recipe and arrange them in your serving bowl.
  • Put a frying pan onto the heat and add the coconut oil.
  • When the oil has warmed up add the mushrooms and cook these for a minute before adding the mange tout.
  • After another minute add the curry paste and cook it in the pan for a couple of minutes before adding the reduced fat coconut milk.
  • If you feel you want more of a sauce, don’t be afraid to add a few tablespoons of water to the pan as this won’t affect your macros.
  • When the mange tout are cooked to your liking, serve the vegetable curry alongside the zoodles and sprinkle with your sesame seeds.
  • After the turkey has rested for a few minutes, cut it into slices and arrange it on top of your vegetable curry and zoodles, and serve with a slice of lime for a little zing!

Recipe Notes

  • To make zoodles, use firm courgettes for the best results.
  • Why not batch cook this recipe and have a portion ready for tomorrow too!
