Servings & Times
Yield:
  • 4 servings
Active Time:
  • 15 min
Ingredients

4 scallions

1 cup thawed frozen peas

2 eggs

3 tablespoons olive oil

1-1/2 cups chopped leftover turkey 

3 cups cooked cold rice

1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste

Steps

Chop the scallions and set them aside in a bowl. Place the peas in a measuring cup or bowl. Beat the eggs in a bowl and set aside. Heat 2 teaspoons of the olive oil in a wok or stir-fry pan over medium-high heat. Add the eggs and cook, stirring once or twice until they are set on the bottom. Turn the eggs over and cook briefly until firm. Dish out the eggs onto a chopping board, chop them and set them aside. Heat the remaining olive oil in the pan. Add the scallions and stir-fry for about 2 minutes. Add the rice and stir-fry to remove any clumps and to mix in the scallions. Add the peas and turkey and cook for another minute, stirring frequently to distribute the ingredients evenly. Add the eggs and salt and stir-fry for another minute or so.
