As you may have guessed, The Fit Cookie is chock full of dessert recipes (go figure…). I love dessert, but I like to throw out some simple main dish recipes on occasion to remind
myself people that one cannot subsist on dessert.
I do plenty of meal-time cooking outside of dessert making, but I don’t share a lot of those meals because I am not a fancy cook. I like simple, whole food meals that are quick, practical, and healthy. This is why I often need a little challenge to get me cooking more post-worthy main dishes.
Sooo…I’m entering a recipe contest! Pure Canadian Maple Syrup is hosting a fun recipe challenge: entrants must create a one-dish recipe using pure maple syrup that is outside the typical syrup box (i.e. pancakes). Plus, we need to share creative ways to re-purpose the leftovers. Sounds fun!
Here is my entry to the Pure Canadian Maple Syrup Contest: Maple Balsamic Turkey and Prosciutto with Asparagus. So yummy! I made this last night and my husband LOVED this recipe – it’s a crowd pleaser! Plus, it’s healthy, allergy-friendly, gluten free, Paleo, AND easy to make. Perfect!
Here are some creative ways you can use the leftovers from this recipe:
- Chop up the turkey bundle and toss into an omelet and sprinkle with cheese
- Chop up the turkey bundle and mix with scrambled eggs and wrap in a whole grain tortilla for a delicious breakfast burrito
- Chop up the bundle and mix with chicken broth, a bit of pureed pumpkin, and whole grain pasta for a quick and hearty soup
Most of these involve chopping up the turkey and asparagus, but if you are lazy or short on time you can always just eat the turkey and asparagus as it is 😉
