Total time: 40 minutes | Serves 1 to 2
Note: From Raj Brandston at Zone Gourmet. Sweet potato noodles can be found at Asian markets.
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil, divided
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/4 jalapeno, minced
  • 1 cup sliced shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 ounces ground turkey
  • 2 cups loosely packed spinach, cooked and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce, divided
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 ounces sweet potato noodles

Step 1Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, green onions and jalapeno and cook until softened, 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook until tender, 2 minutes. Crumble the turkey into the skillet and cook, stirring, until the turkey is no longer pink, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the spinach and 1 tablespoon of soy sauce. Drizzle the egg whites over everything and cook until set, stirring lightly to combine; set aside.

Step 2Bring 2 cups of water, the remaining soy sauce and sesame oil to boil in a small saucepan. Add the noodles and cook until tender, about 4 1/2 minutes. Drain the noodles and stir into the turkey mixture. Serve hot.
