Free Healthy Recipe - Roast turkey with cranberry glaze and festive RicePlus stuffing

Dairy free, Low fat, Low GI, Low sugar, Wheat Free

You can stuff a turkey breast yourself and tie it together with string or ask your butcher to do it for you for a more professional job. With this recipe, it's important to baste the turkey regularly, adding a little boiling water to the roasting pan occasionally to prevent the cranberry glaze from burning.
A large 3 kg turkey will easily feed 12 people with leftovers for a salad the next day

Ingredients
3 kg turkey breast, (we used Lilydale Freerange turkey)
Method

Prepare the Riceplus festive stuffing in advance and ask your butcher to stuff and string the breast.

Spoon the cranberry sauce, and mustard into a small pan to heat gently. Add the lemon juice and stir until warm and well combined. Season with a little salt and pepper.
Allow to cool. Spoon half the mixture over the turkey breast and reserve the remainder to baste.
Preheat the oven to 180C
Pour 1/2 cup water into a roasting pan with the turkey, then place in the oven to cook for a total of 2 hours. To prevent the glaze from burning, baste every 20 minutes with the remaining glaze. Every now and again add a little extra boiling water if the bottom of the pan dries out.
Cover with foil after 1 hour.
Remove from the oven, and set aside to rest for at least 10 minutes.
