Free Healthy Recipe - Baked Turkey with Fennel and Pinenuts
Gluten free, Low carbohydrate, Low GI, Wheat Free
Here we combine the comfort factor of turkey, full flavoured parmesan (to taste through the sinuses) and pine nuts as the main source of zinc.
600 grams turkey fillets
4 baby fennel bulbs, trimmed and thinly sliced lengthways
¼ cup olive oil
½ cup parmesan, grated
1 tsp rosemary, chopped
¼ cup pinenuts
Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
Place the fennel in a large pan with boiling water and cook for approx 7 minutes.
Once the fennel is in the oven, heat a char grill pan to hot, brush the turkey fillets with olive oil and lightly season. Sear the turkey for 2 - 3 minutes each side and place on a baking tray to cook through for a further 10 minutes taking care not to overcook it.
Note: Pinenuts are also a good source of folate, iron, fibre and protein and unlike many other nuts are least likely to cause an allergic reaction.
