"Great meal for after Thanksgiving to use up leftover turkey. Very simple meal. This was one of my favorites as a
child. Serve over rice or chow mein noodles." — BunnyBaker

1 (4 ounce) can
sliced mushrooms, drained
This was a refreshing change from the standard turkey leftover options- which is why I tried it. That said, I'd prefer a little more flavour and a little less sugar. I'll try adding a nice dose of fresh chopped garlic and ginger and reducing the sugar to 1 tablespoon the next time if I have left over turkey on hand. It might also be nice with real black bean sauce too (fermented black beans mashed with minced garlic and ginger)
Note: Instructions don't mention what to do with the onions - I sauteed mine before adding the veggies and the stock to the pan.
This was wonderful to my surprise and such a nice change to the traditional high calorie leftover recipes. I served it over rice. The only change I made was to add cashews after plating to add some crunch. THIS IS A KEEPER.
Great, easy recipe. I added a dash of soy sauce and a pinch of garlic powder at the very end to boost the flavour. Drizzled a very small amount of that peanut sauce on the top. Delicious! I will definitely make this again and play around with different flavours.
just made this meal tonight and it has filled me up a lot! And it was very nice my boyfriend liked it a lot too. Next time I will add lots more things to this to experiment maybe make it a bit spicy overall tastes great and very easy to make definitely will make this again
Relatively easy to make and quick-to-fix during a busy week. We served it up using our leftover stuffing as the "rice" underneath. What a delightful mix. Serve with a side of cranberries to get that slight bit of sweetness, which compliments the saltiness of the soy sauce. Makes great for a heavy serving for two, and then something leftover for the next day at lunch.
