Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450°.

  • Coat the inside of the oven bag with cooking spray. Place bag on a large shallow baking pan.

  • Combine ground turkey, diced mushrooms, green onions, 2 teaspoons cornstarch, 1 teaspoon soy sauce, and sesame oil in a bowl, and shape into 16 (1-inch) meatballs. Place meatballs on a single layer of wax paper.

  • Combine hot water and rice sticks in a bowl, and let stand 15 minutes. Drain well, and snip with scissors twice. Combine 1 teaspoon cornstarch and broth in a large bowl. Add 2 teaspoons soy sauce, sherry, and lime juice. Add rice sticks, sliced mushrooms, ginger, curry, and garlic, and toss well.

  • Place the noodle mixture in the prepared oven bag. Place the meatballs on noodle mixture, and fold edges of bag over to seal. Bake at 450° for 20 minutes or until the meatballs are done. Place the oven bag on platter, cut open with a sharp knife, and peel back foil. Sprinkle with minced cilantro.
