Turkey "Rissotto"

Gosh I have been so slack with adding the recipes that I promised. Ive been so busy with my new job that the blog has been severely neglected.

So here is our current favourite meal, "Turkey Hash". It is suprisingly delicious. We call it "rissotto" as it is a good substitute when you are feeling like rice. We recently had a boy staying over at our house and I served this up and just said it was rissotto. Said boy ate 3 bowls full, even though his mother swears he never eats vegetables!

I found this one on the grainfree foodies blog - here is the link: http://grainfreefoodie.blogspot.com/2009/06/turkey-hash.html

Turkey Hash

3-4 Tbsp. butter
1 large onion, chopped
2 large carrots, peeled and chopped
1 large stalk of celery, chopped
1 tsp. dried sage, rubbed
1 tsp. dried rosemary, crushed
1 tsp. dried thyme, rubbed
1 head of cauliflower, cored and finely chopped (I use a food processor.)
1 -2 cups cooked chopped turkey meat
Turkey or chicken broth as needed to keep from sticking
Salt and pepper to taste

My Tweak: We also add capsicum, broccoli, bok choy, and lots of garlic


In a large frying pan or wok, cook onion, carrots, and celery in the butter until they are starting to soften. Add dried herbs, rubbing to release flavor. Stir. Add cauliflower, turkey and some broth to keep from sticking. Continue cooking and stirring until cauliflower is cooked through and the veggies begin to caramelize. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

My Tweak: We use a rolled boneless turkey leg that we get from the butcher and slow roast it the night before.
