Heat the oil in a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add dried peppers and peppercorns. Cook for one minute until fragrant. Be careful not to burn the peppers. Remove and discard.
3
Add garlic and preserved vegetables. Cook for two minutes. Add ground turkey, Tamari sauce and vinegar. Stir-fry until meat is browned and no longer pink. Add the turkey to the sauce and mix so everything is evenly distributed.

Gently steam the green vegetables in a steamer or large pot of boiling water. Add ½ tsp of sesame oil to enhance the flavour and brighten the vegetables.

Spoon the cooked meat mixture over the pasta with the steamed vegetables. Sprinkle the chopped peanuts on top (optional). Serve immediately.
