For my next Lean In 15 meal I wanted to try The Mighty Duck Noodles. I have had duck before and I really like it but I have never cooked it myself so I thought I would try something different.
I doubled the recipe so it would be enough for 2 people.
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 x Duck breasts (skin removed and cut into thin slices)
1 tsp Five-spice powder
6 Spring onions (finely sliced)
2 Garlic cloves ( finely sliced or crushed)
200g Tender stem broccoli
300-500g Fresh egg noodles ( I used about 350g)
4 tbsp Hoisin sauce
1/2 Small cucumber (sliced into thin strips)
Before I started to fry the duck I chopped the spring onions, garlic and I also chopped any pieces of broccoli that were quite chunky in half so they cooked evenly.
Once the skin had been removed from the duck I sliced the breasts into small strips. I added the coconut oil to a frying pan and put the heat on medium-high. Once the oil had melted I added the strips of duck to the pan and let it fry for a few minutes.
Once all of the duck had completely browned I turned the heat up to high and added the broccoli, spring onions, garlic, five-spice and a few tablespoons of water, this helps to steam the veg. Carry on frying the ingredients for about another 3 minutes and then add the noodles. Stir all of the ingredients to make sure the noodles are cooked thoroughly.
Once the noodles are cooked, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the hoisin sauce and place into bowls. Top with the sliced cucumber and to finish I drizzled some more hoisin over the top!
