It was the combination of a sultry summer and being constantly inspired by the I Quit Sugar team that led us to road testing a beautifully fresh recipe from the IQS 8 Week Program. Whilst these Asian flavours taste exotic and complex, this dish is super simple to prepare. A big tick of approval from us - let us know if you think so too!

Serves: 2

You will need:
300 g turkey mince (or pork or chicken mince)
50g vermicelli noodles
1/4 cup coriander leaves
2 tablespoons tamari
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 spring onions, finely sliced
6 large iceberg lettuce leaves
1 small carrot, grated
1 small zucchini, grated
1 long red chilli, finely sliced
3cm piece ginger, finely grated
2 teaspoons fish sauce
Juice of 1 lime

Pour boiling water over noodles and soak for 5 mins, until soft, then drain. Cut into 5cm lengths.

Heat oil in a frying pan over high heat. Add spring onions, ginger and mince and cook for 5 minutes, or until browned, breaking up any lumps with the back of a wooden spoon. Add carrot and zucchini. Cook for about 2 minutes. Add tamari, fish sauce, lime juice and noodles and stir to combine.

Spoon half the mince mixture into a lunchbox and set aside with 3 lettuce cups and half the coriander and chilli for lunch tomorrow.

Spoon remaining mixture into lettuce cups and top with remaining coriander and chilli.
