Ingredients

  • 4 servings of Thai turkey mince, defrosted (see Step 1)
  • 2 stalks lemongrass
  • 4 lime leaves, fresh or dried
  • 250g Thai jasmine rice
  • 2 tsp sunflower oil
  • 2 x 200g packs choi sum (or pak choi)
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 5cm root ginger, cut into matchsticks
  • 1 tbsp Thai fish sauce
  • lime wedges to serve, optional

Step by step

  1. For this recipe, you need to make our Thai turkey mince

    Bash the lemongrass stalks with the flat of a knife or a rolling pin, to help release the aroma. Put them in a medium pan with the lime leaves, Thai jasmine rice and a pinch of salt; pour in 600ml freshly boiled water. Bring to the boil, stir; cover with a lid and cook over a low heat for 15 minutes until the rice is tender and has absorbed all the liquid. Remove the lemongrass and lime leaves.
  2. Meanwhile, put the Thai turkey mince in a lidded pan and reheat gently for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until piping hot.
  3. About 5 minutes before serving, heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok. Chop the choi sum (or pak choi) into roughly 5cm lengths, and keep the leafy sections aside. Add the stalks to the frying pan or wok with the garlic and ginger. Fry over a high heat for 2 minutes or until just turning golden. Reduce the heat; add the fish sauce, 4 tablespoons water and the leaves. Cover the pan and cook for 2 minutes or until just wilted.
  4. Serve the Thai mince ladled over the rice, accompanied by the wilted greens. Serve with lime wedges if you wish.
