I absolutely love turkey, took me a while to find it locally and then a little while to master cooking it just right but nowadays it is part of our weekly diet and we eat turkey breast at least twice a week.
Tonight we ate braised Turkey breast with fresh veg.
- 1 onion (cut into strips)
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/2 a low sodium chicken stock cube ( can be excluded)
- 2 turkey breasts
- 1 carrot (cut into strips)
- 1 zucchini (cut into strips
- 1 cup of tomato in pulp
- 2 tsps of cumin powder
- 2-3 cups of water
Prep: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
In a large frying pan, start off by frying your onion and garlic lightly in some water or a bit of olive oil. Then push the onions aside, add a little water and add the turkey breasts to the pan, let the flesh turn white and flip it over. Make sure there is enough water in the pan so your turkey doesn’t get stuck. Grate your chicken stock cube over the turkey, add your carrot and zucchini and add some more water. Add the tomato pulp and sprinkle the cumin powder over eveything. All your ingredients need to be just covered in liquid. Let the juices reduce for about 5-10 minutes on high heat. Make sure your turkey doesn’t get stuck to the bottom of the pan. Season with pepper.
In the last 10 minutes of cooking, add broccoli to the top of the pan and cover with a lid. This will stream your broccoli and finalize the cooking of your turkey.
