With the holidays just around the corner, everyone is busy and it's hard to find a moment to sit down and relax. Sometimes I find myself working late into the night and the thought of cooking a meal just gives me a headache. With Gardein, I can quickly cook and serve up a healthy meal in 20 minutes or less. This week, we make a delicious "turkey" dinner with Gardein's Turk'y Cutlet! Scroll down for the recipe.

INGREDIENTS:

  • Gardein Turk'y Cutlet
  • Fresh carrots, chopped and slice (as in picture)
  • Fresh broccoli
  • One lemon (half for garnish, half for juice)
  • One stick of butter
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • Parsley (for garnish)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Following the directions on the Gardein bag I placed the turkey cutlets on a non stick pan in a preheated oven at 450 for ten minutes. Flip the cutlets over and place back in oven for another ten minutes and then rest for two minutes.
  2. While this is going start your veggies, place them in a steamer basket on medium low heat and check around the ten-minute mark.
  3. In a sauté pan began making the lemon caper sauce. Add white wine, lemon juice, and 1 Tbsp. butter. Cook 2 minutes or just until thoroughly heated.
  4. Add in garlic, parsley, and capers; spoon over turkey. Garnish with fresh parsley and lemon wedges if desired. Serve immediately.
