Creative New Cookbook Can Help
(NAPSA) - Research reveals a fowl fact:
many people don't know how to cook turkey, aside from the traditional full bird. They should, nutritionists say. In fact, turkey has been called one of the highest protein, lowest calorie and lowest fat meats available.
Fortunately, a new cookbook offers 66 recipes, turkey cooking tips and suggestions on holiday meals and food safety. It even has plastic sleeves so you can add new recipes from turkeytrim.com, the book's official Web site.
Called New Turkey Classics, it features such marvelous meals as this tasty dish:
- 1 lb. Honeysuckle White or Shady Brook Farms Turkey Tenderloins
- 3/4 cup teriyaki sauce
- 2 Tbsp. lemon or lime juice
- 2 tsp. garlic juice or 4 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
- Boiling water
- 8 medium mushrooms
- 1 medium onion, peeled and quartered
- 1 (6") zucchini, unpeeled and cut into 8 pieces
- 1 medium green pepper, cored, seeded and cut into 8 pieces
- 1 sweet red pepper, cored, seeded and cut into 8 pieces
- 4 (12" to 15") metal or wooden skewers
- Nonstick cooking spray
In a small bowl, combine first 3 ingredients; set aside. Cut each tenderloin into 8 pieces and place in a medium bowl. Add 1/4 cup sauce to turkey, mixing well. Reserve remaining sauce for basting kabobs.
In a large heavy sauce-pan, cook vegetables for 3 minutes in enough boiling water to cover. Remove vegetables with a slotted spoon; set aside.
Thread 4 pieces of turkey, 2 pieces of green pepper, 2 pieces of red pepper, 2 mushrooms, 2 pieces of zucchini and 1 piece of onion onto each skewer, ar-ranging turkey and vegetable pieces alternately. Place kabobs on a rack coated with cooking spray in a broiler pan; baste each kabob liberally with reserved sauce.
Broil 6" to 8" from heat source for 3 minutes. Turn kabobs over, brush with additional sauce, and broil for 3 minutes. Turn kabobs twice more, brushing with additional sauce for each turn and broiling for a total cooking time of 10 to 12 minutes or until turkey is tender and done.
