Turkey Recipes


A few years ago, neck tags with this now-popular recipe first appeared on Colavita's balsamic vinegar bottles. I've replaced the regular flour with soy flour to make it lower in carbs.

            4 large turkey fillets
            2 tablespoons soy flour
            Fresh pepper to taste
˝ cup Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
            1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and cut into strips
            4-6 ounces oyster mushrooms, cleaned and torn apart
            4 garlic cloves, sliced
˝ cup Colavita balsamic vinegar
˝ cup chicken stock
            1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
            1 teaspoon dried thyme or 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

In Addition:

            1 tablespoon soy flour
            2 tablespoons Colavita balsamic vinegar

Serves 4

Mix soy flour with pepper and salt and dust turkey fillets. Sauté turkey fillets about 5 minutes, turn over when brown. Add bell pepper strips, mushrooms, and garlic. Continue cooking another 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix
Colavita balsamic vinegar, chicken stock, mustard, and thyme and add to turkey fillets. Cover and continue to cook for approximately 30 minutes over medium heat. Remove turkey.

Mix 1 tablespoon of flour with 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar, add to skillet, stir, and cook 5 to 7 minutes. Return turkey to marry flavors.
