  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • 1/4 cup olive oil.
  • Boil cube and porcini together in the litre of water.
  • Heat oil in a Karahi or Wok or any large pan with high sides on high heat.

  • Add cauliflower florets etc. and stir fry together with turkey.
  • Add orzo and mix and stir fry as well with the rest of the stuff.
