Spicy Turkey Ramen Stir-Fry

The great thing about stir-fry (as with ramen) is that it is highly customizable. Stir-fry is a great way to use up veggies before they go bad. I used carrots, onion and cilantro for this one. But you could use sweet peppers, bell peppers, broccoli, snap peas, zucchini — the list goes on and on.

If you don’t want this to be too spicy, you could omit the additional Sriracha used as a garnish. If you remove it from the sauce, it is going to be a little bit bland, so keep that in mind. If you cannot find Rice Ramen bricks (I prefer Lotus Foods brand for this), you can use the instant ramen. Just make sure to reduce the cook time, as those only take 2-3 minutes to cook through, unlike the 10 minutes the rice ramen bricks take.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
