Because food should be good
Christmas season is almost synonymous with scrumptious meals. But if you are worried about piling on the pounds this season, fret not. The answer is: Turkey. Nutritionally, turkey breast is an excellent low fat, high protein food. It is also an inexpensive source of iron, zinc, phosphorus, potassium and vitamins B. We bring you this easy, quick and warm recipe (for two) that will make you the culinary queen or king in an instant.

You will need two medium onion roughly sliced, 2-3 roughly sliced garlic cloves, two turkey breast slices, ˝ cup of chicken stock, a sprig of finely chopped rosemary, some finely chopped parsley, two tablespoons of skimmed milk and a 2-3 tablespoons of white wine, salt, pepper to taste, red bell pepper cut into four, some pistachios and some olive oil for cooking.

Diced Onions and Garlic


Divide the sliced onion and garlic mixture equally. You will be making the gravy and cooking the breasts simultaneously in two different pans.

Marinate the turkey breasts with two teaspoons of sliced onion and garlic mixture as well as the chopped rosemary and parsley plus salt and pepper. Leave it aside for ten minutes.

Gravy beginning to form



Check the other pan; cook the turkey pieces for about 15 minutes on both sides. Add the bell peppers and cook it for about five minutes till it turns blackish. You can check the turkey is cooked by piercing it with a fork. If the fork comes out clean then your turkey is ready.

Adding the finishing touches


Season your gravy with salt and pepper according to your taste. Check for the consistency; if it is too loose add a tablespoon of plain flour and cook for another 10 minutes.

Take your steaks in a plate when it's hot, place the bell-peppers on top of the turkey steaks, pour the gravy on the side and add 2-3 pistachios on top for garnishing.

I think a balanced diet from all food groups and not stressing about everything will keep you healthy. Good to see a recipe for turkey as I tend to just think of it as a Christmas roast

The jury on meat causing cancer is still out there. Most companies also source their products ethically now lowering the chances for cancer.
