Turkey Bake, with Broccoli and Mushrooms in a creamy sauce

It's definitely the time of year for Turkey! Why not try this one step creamy turkey bake. Minimal preparation is required, making it perfect for busy weekdays... or any day!

Serves 3/4
3.4 g carbs per serving
300g tub of full fat crème fraîche
3 tbsp. milk
2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp. chopped fresh sage (or 1 tsp dried)
Salt & pepper to taste
600g fresh British Turkey breast, diced
1 head of broccoli, cut into thumb sized florets
250g mushrooms, sliced
To Serve:
Some may choose boiled new potatoes …
My Choice, lower carb oven-baked swede (rutabaga) wedges.
1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 C / 160 fan / gas mark 4.
2. In a large bowl, combine the crème fraiche, milk, garlic, mustard and sage. Season well to taste with salt and pepper and mix until smooth.
3. Add the diced turkey, small broccoli florets and mushrooms to the sauce and mix together really well so everything is coated with the sauce.
4. Pour into a large oven dish and bake for around 45 minutes until the turkey is cooked through and the broccoli is tender. If the sauce splits a little, give it a mix when it comes out of the oven, and it will come together again. 
5. Garnish with a few crispy-fried sage leaves (if desired), and serve with your choice of accompanying vegetables.
From an original idea here
For our vegetarian/vegan readers, I'm sure you could use substitutes in this recipe e.g. tofu...

Did you know Broccoli contains:
almost 5 times as much vitamin C as potato
8 times as much calcium as potato
almost 2.5 times as much dietary fibre as potato

Iris Flavia said...

I do love broccoli! But I think you can´t get turkey at the butcher here... you get it as cold cuts, though.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

What a great way to use up all that turkey everyone in the states has left over from Thanksgiving. thanks for this recipe, Jan.

DeniseinVA said...

A wonderful way to use leftovers :) Thanks Jan!

Phil Slade said...

Despite this appealing recipe, I think we may be like most people and eat turkey just once a year. I think it's because it is rather like chicken but the latter makes for better eating. Turkey invariably tastes dry in comparison. Still, maybe with a sauce as you suggest would be much better. Thanks for the thought Jan and Eddie.
