Turkey Risotto

There is nothing I love more than a healthy and delicious meal. Eating healthy does not mean you have to compromise on taste. Here is a lovely recipe for a turkey risotto, which is a nice way to welcome fall into your home.



– 1 yellow pepper, diced
– 15 ounces turkey breast, small strips
– 16 ounces diced tomatoes
– 3 tablespoons sesame oil
– 1 celery stalk, diced
– 1 cup of basmati rice
– 1 table spoon of red pepper/ paprika powder
– 2 onions, 1 diced
– garlic if preferred
– 1 cube of chicken soup broth
– 1 table spoon low fat margerine

Serves: 3
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes



1 Bring a large pot of water to boil, add paprika seasoning, sesame oil, one diced onion and all diced tomatoes.

2 In a second smaller pot add a little oil until it sizzles then add the turkey breast stripes until the edges are gold brown. Then pour everything into the large pot. Again add oil to the smaller pot, add one onion cut in stripes. Depending on how crispy you want them to be let them sizzle.

3 Now add the onions and the rest of the ingredients into the larger pot, make sure that the rice is always covered by water and let it all cook for twenty to thirty minutes approximately.

    • @eatingwellnyc what I forgot to add was; add cold water to the cup of rice first and let it sit for five minutes, its not mandatory but makes the rice stickier which is great for risotto
