I love this stir fry turkey with sugar snap peas recipe. Not only is it really healthy, it’s quick and easy to prepare too. And, as the turkey is marinated first, less oil is needed, cutting the overall fat content and helping to prevent the turkey drying out during cooking too. A perfect quick healthy meal for two ready in just 40 minutes!

  • 300 g turkey breasts cut into strips
  • 1 tsp Chinese five spice powder
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 70 g cashew nuts
  • 160 g sugar snap peas
  • 8 spring onions topped and tailed and cut length ways
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander / parsley to garnish


  • Place the turkey breast strips into a shallow dish with the five spice powder, soy sauce, crushed garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and water. Mix together well and set aside for at least 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile toast the cashew nuts in a dry wok over a medium heat. Put aside to cool.
  • Add the turkey breast strips and all of the juices from the shallow dish and stir fry for about 4 minutes. Once cooked, remove the turkey strips from the wok with a slotted spoon or tongs.
  • Add the sugar snap peas to the remaining marinade in the wok and stir fry for approximately 4 – 5 minutes. If there is insufficient marinade left, or the wok starts drying out, add a couple of tablespoons of hot water.
  • Add the turkey strips back to the wok, then the spring onions and cashew nuts and stir fry everything together for 1 – 2 minutes.
  • Serve immediately dividing between 2 plates and garnish with coriander / parsley.
