  1. Put the turkey in a food processor and process, pulsing the machine on and off, until very finely chopped; be careful not to turn it into a paste. Cook the greens in a pot of boiling salted water for 3- 5 minutes or until just wilted. Drain, refresh with cold water, and drain again. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan over low heat. Add the onion, and cook gently for about 5 minutes until soft. Add the ginger, garlic and chiles, and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring and tossing constantly.
  3. Stir in the turkey. Add the soy sauce and mirin, and stir-fry for 5-8 minutes until the turkey is warmed through. Stir in the reserved greens and the basil, and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
