Recipes for Diabetes: Two-Hour Roasted Turkey

Nothing says “holidays” like turkey. Rather than serving this bird with fattening gravy and starchy mashed potatoes, stick to your weight loss program and try pairing it with a green salad, roasted vegetables, and mashed cauliflower. That way you can have healthy variations of the traditional side dishes with none of the guilt. You can find this and other delicious recipes for diabetes in my Reversing Diabetes Cookbook.Two-Hour Roasted Turkey

Two-Hour Roasted Turkey
Serves 12

4   pounds turkey breast (whole breast, sometimes called turkey roast)
1   teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
¼  teaspoon salt substitute
¼  teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 325º F.

Rub turkey with olive oil, salt, and pepper and place on a rack in a roasted pan or in a shallow baking pan. Place a meat thermometer in turkey, making sure it doesn’t touch a bone.

Bake until the thermometer registers 170º F, about two hours. If turkey begins to get too brown, cover loosely with aluminum foil.

Let sit for 10 minutes, remove skin, and carve.
