    This is a spring version of Lo Mein, with cherry tomatoes rather than mushrooms; lighter and fresher.    

Turkey Lo Mein

Total time: 30 minutes
     You can either use turkey cutlets, cut into strips or part of a turkey tenderloin, cut into bite-size pieces.  Almost any vegetable, cut small, will work in this.  It's a great way to use up the odd bits left in the fridge.
