Creamy Turkey Bake with Broccoli and Mushrooms : Low Carb


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

Ingredients
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.
Method
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 idea here
You could of course use chicken in this recipe, and for our vegetarian/vegan readers, I'm sure you could use substitutes such as tofu...


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

Jan, this recipe looks and sounds so good. I eat a certain amount of broccoli as that is how I keep my blood in the right place while on warfarin. Broccoli is my Vit.K of choice. Raw or cooked..Happy Monday..xxoJudy

It looks delicious, but I always have to omit mushrooms from any dish as Mick won't eat them. He doesn't know what he's missing!
