  • 1 aubergine
  • 1 courgette
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 garlic cloves
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1½ tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp chilli powder
  • 300g turkey breast, skinless
  • 50g low fat sour cream
  • 8 x 7" tortillas
  • 170g low fat salsa


Preheat oven to 190°C / Gas Mark 5 / 375°F

  1. Pre-warm 2 oven-proof dishes.
  2. Place the tortillas onto a plate and cover with cling film (ready to microwave at last minute).
  3. Top and tail the aubergine and courgette; de-seed the pepper; halve and peel the onion - cut all vegetables into thin strips 1cm (½") wide.
  4. Cut the turkey breast into thins strips 1½cm (¾") wide.
  5. In a large bowl mix ½ tbsp olive oil, lemon juice, crushed garlic and chilli powder together.
  6. Take the turkey breast into and add to the bowl and stir until all sides are coated. Set aside in the refrigerator to marinate.
  7. Heat a wok over a hot heat. Add ½ tbsp oil and, when smoking, add the vegetables (with great care!) Stir fry for 5 minutes, or until vegetables soften and turn brown around edges. Remove from wok to oven-proof dish and pop in oven to keep warm.
  8. Alternatively, wrap 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). Once cooked, remove from wok to remaining oven-proof dish.
  10. Heat the tortillas in the microwave for 1 minute (or remove pre-warmed tortillas from oven)
  11. 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.

Vegetarian Option: Make this dish without the turkey for a tasty vegetarian alternative. Simply prepare the vegetables as above and toss them in the chilli/lemon juice/garlic/oil mixture to coat. Stir fry and serve as above.

These fajitas are equally delicious cold. Pop any remaining turkey, vegetables, etc into the refrigerator and assemble as above for a tasty sandwich alternative!
