We tend to associate turkey with Christmas, but in reality you can use it all year round! With summer just around the corner, everybody is trying to be a little bit healthier with their meals. After a tough day at work meals that require a lot of prep work can be disheartening, so this dinner is designed to be ready in less than 10 minutes, has no carbs, and is packed full of protein and veggie goodness. It's also perfect for straight after the gym or a workout.

Instructions

Step 1

The ingredients are super simple. If you're looking to make the preparation phase even faster, make sure to get the turkey pre-sliced.

Step 3

Take the pepper and peel it away from the stalk. Slice it into nice, thin pieces. That's it! This is all the prep you need to do, and believe it or not you're half way there.

Step 4

Place a big frying pan or a wok on to a medium heat. Add a little oil (not olive oil as it will burn with the high temperatures later). Throw in all the stuff that you chopped up and cook it over a medium heat to get all the flavours flowing

Add the turkey to the pan. No need to keep stirring. Leave it sit there on the heat to give it some colour

Step 9

Throw in the green beans. Stir them around for about 30 seconds. They don't take long to soften up and we want a little bite left in them

Add the frozen peas. Doesn't matter if they are ice cold

Step 13

Throw in the big bag of spinach. It'll pile over the top and look like you have way too much, but don't worry

Step 14

Stir it around, and as it starts to shrink and turn the heat off

Step 15

Your dish should look something like this. Don't overcook it or you'll start to lose all those colours, and you don't want the turkey to dry out. Take it off the heat and serve it up

Step 16

Be generous with the portion because with no carbs in here you'll want lots of it. Taste the goodness, and no washing up - and an epic dish.
