Method

Method

  1. Mix ½ tbsp olive oil, lemon juice, crushed garlic and chilli
    powder together in a large bowl.
  2. Cut the turkey breast into thins strips 1½cm (¾”) wide. Add to the bowl and stir until all sides are coated. Set aside in the refrigerator to marinate.
  3. Top and tail the aubergine and courgette; de-seed the pepper; halve and peel the onion and cut all vegetables into thin strips 1cm (½”) wide.
  4. Preheat oven to 190°C and pre-warm 2 oven-proof dishes.
  5. Heat a wok (or frying pan) over a hot heat. Add ½ tbsp oil and when the oil is hot add the vegetables
  6. Stir fry for 5 minutes, or until vegetables soften and turn brown around edges.
  7. Remove from wok to oven-proof dish and pop in oven to keep warm.
  8. Place the tortillas onto a plate and cover with cling film so that they are ready to microwave at last minute. Or you could wrap them in foil and place in the oven.
  9. Heat the remaining ½ tbsp olive in the wok, add the turkey and stir fry for 3-4 minutes (or until browned on the outside and white on the inside).
  10. Once this is cooked remove from wok to remaining oven-proof dish.
  11. Heat the tortillas in the microwave for 1 minute (or remove pre-warmed tortillas from oven)
  12. These fajitas are best served ready to wrap – with each person taking an eighth of the vegetables, an eighth of the turkey, a large teaspoon of salsa and small teaspoon of sour cream per tortilla.

This recipe allows 2 tortillas for each person.
