2 cups cooked jasmine rice
¼ cup oil, (vegetable, coconut, canola or grape seed oil)
6 oz leftover Thanksgiving turkey meat
2 Tbsp Tom Yum Paste, (Aroy D or Mae Sri Brand)
2.5 Tbsp fish sauce
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tsp sugar
½ cup tomato chopped into 1-inch pieces
½ cup mushroom sliced long and thin
1 Tbsp kaffir lime leaves very finely sliced, around 3-4 leaves
½ cup shallots, long and thinly sliced
1/3 cup green onions chopped into ½ inch pieces
¼ cup cilantro, chopped
- Heat a wok or large skillet on medium high heat and wait until it’s warm to add oil.
- Add the garlic and shallot, stir, and let cook for 1 minute.
- Add the eggs, scrambled lightly for 1 minute. Do not stir it too often to leave large chunks of eggs intact.
- Add the turkey and lightly stir fry everything in the wok together for 1 minute
- Add the Tom Yum paste, break up the chunks and stir well with the food in the wok
- Add the mushroom and rice, fish sauce, lime juice, sugar and stir together for 2 minutes.
- Turn the heat to high, add the tomato and green onions and cilantro, stir well together, and cook for 1 minute. Turn the heat off and place the fried rice in a serving platter and enjoy your new favorite stir-fry!
- Tom Yum Paste. If you can find a Thai brand for Tom Yum paste, it’d be ideal. If you are unable to, use whatever brand of the paste you can find, but play around with the amount of sugar, fish sauce, and lime juice a little bit towards the end to find just the right flavors for your taste buds!
- Rice. You can use rice that is 2-3 days old but if you are unable, use fresh rice but be sure to let it sit and dry out on a plate for at least 30 minutes to let the moisture escape. You can prepare the other ingredients while this is going on.
- Roasted meat. You only need 6 oz of roasted meat. You can use dark or white meat for this and it’s ok to leave some of the skin on top if you like the skin. The skin adds extra flavor. Yum!
