    About this recipe: The unexpected heat of horseradish sharpens the appetite for this lean yet filling turkey dish, quickly prepared and cooked. Try serving with mashed sweet potatoes.

    Serves: 4 

    • 450 g (1 lb) skinned turkey fillets
    • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
    • 75 g (2¾ oz) onions, chopped
    • 225 g (8 oz) button mushrooms, sliced
    • 50 g (1¾ oz) plain white flour
    • 600 ml (1 pint) skimmed milk
    • 1-2 tablespoons grated horseradish or horseradish relish (not creamed horseradish)
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or chives
    • Salt and black pepper
    • To garnish: sprigs of fresh flat-leaved parsley

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Cut the turkey into 1 cm (½ in) strips.
    2. Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large nonstick frying pan or wok and sauté the onions for 5 minutes, or until softened.
    3. Lightly coat the turkey strips with another teaspoon of the oil, using your hands. Add them to the onions and stir-fry for 5 minutes.
    4. Add the mushrooms and the remaining oil and stir-fry 2-3 minutes more.
    5. Sprinkle in the flour. Cook for 1 minute, then gradually stir in the milk, scraping any bits from the pan. Bring it to the boil and cook for a further 1 minute, then reduce the heat to a simmer.
    6. Stir in the horseradish to taste, add the herbs and season. Simmer for a further 5 minutes, then garnish with parsley and serve.


    You can replace the horseradish with wholegrain mustard.

    This dish is worthy of a dinner party, served with some green veg, sprouts or brocolli go well.  -  28 Jan 2014
