Ingredients

Kosher salt

12 ounces wide rice noodles, pappardelle or fettuccine

2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

1/4 cup oyster sauce

2 tablespoons rice vinegar (not seasoned)

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 small Japanese eggplant, sliced into rounds

4 ounces mixed mushrooms, cut into pieces (about 1 cup)

2 cloves garlic, chopped

3/4 pound ground turkey

1 bunch scallions, sliced

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped

Sriracha or other Asian chile sauce, for serving (optional)

Directions

  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil; add the noodles and cook as the label directs. Reserve 1 1/4 cups of the cooking water, then drain and rinse the noodles. Transfer to a large bowl and toss with 1 teaspoon sesame oil. Mix the oyster sauce and vinegar in a cup; set aside. Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in large skillet over high heat. Add the eggplant and stir-fry until golden, about 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook until wilted, 1 minute. Push the vegetables to one side and add the remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds. Add the turkey and stir-fry until cooked through, about 3 minutes. Stir the turkey and vegetables together; add the scallions and half of the oyster sauce mixture and cook 1 more minute. Add the noodles, 1 cup of the reserved cooking water and the remaining oyster sauce mixture and 1 teaspoon sesame oil. Stir-fry until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes, adding more cooking water as needed to loosen. Top with cilantro and serve with Sriracha, if desired.  Photograph by Antonis Achilleos
