  • Cooking time:


Pour the stock into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Add the turkey strips, turn down the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

Lift out the turkey pieces and keep warm, then bring the stock back to a rapid boil until reduced by two thirds.

Meanwhile, cook the leek in a pan of boiling salted water for 3-4 minutes, or until just tender. Drain well and keep warm.

Add the cream, mustard, parsley and peas to the reduced stock. Then stir in the cooked turkey and leeks and heat gently to warm through.

Season well with salt and pepper and serve straight away in bowls, with boiled potatoes.
