Turkey and Green Beans in Cranberry Plum Sauce

If you still have leftovers, I bet you’re asking yourself, “Why did we make such a huge turkey?” Because you were waiting for this awesome recipe!

1 cup shredded turkey
2 cups left over green beans (not from a can)
1 can sliced water chestnuts
¼ cup slivered almonds
1 TBSP peanut or sesame oil
jarred plum sauce or you can make your own (recipe follows)
Steamed rice

Stir fry turkey, almonds, and veggies in oil for 5-6 minutes until everything is heated through. Pour over desired amount of plum sauce and toss. 6-8 oz is usually ideal depending on your pallet for sauciness. Serve over steamed rice.

Cranberry Plum Sauce

1 cup canned plums, liquid drained
½ cup left over cranberry sauce
1/3 cup rice vinegar
2 TBSP brown sugar
1 tsp garlic chili paste
1 tsp grated ginger

This whips up nicely in a food processor. Can be made ahead and refrigerated.
