Makes 4 mooshu rolls
by Kate Heyhoe
Here's another exotic way to use up post-Thanksgiving turkey. It's a tasty three-ingredient recipe that literally comes together in minutes. All you need is a microwave oven, a microwave-safe dish, a cutting board and a knife.
2 cups cooked, shredded turkey meat, preferably dark meat
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 cups finely shredded napa cabbage
4 flour tortillas, heated (see method below)
2 chopped green onions, optional
In a microwave-safe bowl (such as a Pyrex casserole with lid), toss the turkey meat with the hoisin sauce. Sprinkle the cabbage on top. Cover and heat on high 1 minute. Stir the mixture: the turkey should be just heated through and the cabbage slightly wilted but not yet limp. If the cabbage is too crunchy for your tastes, microwave another 15 seconds or until the desired consistency is reached. (Note: the turkey and cabbage will release liquid as they're cooked, so avoid overcooking them.) Spoon into warm flour tortillas and serve with a generous amount of fresh cracked pepper, and if desired, chopped green onions.
Heating flour tortillas:
Run your hand under the faucet and lightly dampen one side of each tortilla. Stack the tortillas on a microwave-safe plate (it helps to spritz with nonstick spray in between each tortilla). Cover with another plate, inverted, and microwave on high 1 minute or until tortillas are soft, pliable and warmed through.
