Sometimes when my husband works a late shift I’ll cook a regular meal for the kids, and then we sit down together when he gets home. It’s not that I’m advocating cooking individual meals for different family members though! It’s simply that it’s nice to have somebody to sit and eat with at the end of a long day in work. This griddled turkey steak with vegetable stack is a wholesome, gluten free, paleo friendly dish that will keep you coming back for more. It’s well balanced and light on the stomach if you don’t like eating too much late in the evening.

- 2 Turkey Breast Steaks
- 1 Red Pepper
- 1 Courgette
- 1 Leek
- 1 Medium Sweet Potato
- 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
- 1 Tablespoon White Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 clove of garlic finely chopped
- Pinch of Salt & Pepper
Ensure all ingredients are at room temperature and you have lightly oiled a griddle pan (do this while cool) before first use. Heat the griddle pan until smoking. Preheat a (fan) oven to 180 degrees Celsius, and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
Slice the pepper into large chunks, the courgette and leeks into rounds. Each to approximately a 2cm thickness. Peel and slice the sweet potato into equal-thickness sized chips. They should be about 2cm in diameter. Place the chopped vegetables on the lightly oiled griddle until they get a blackened “bar” mark. Note they are not cooked through at this stage, next add them to the lined baking tray, and then put the tray into the preheated oven.
Turn off the griddle pan and allow the vegetables to roast for approximately 25-35 minutes in the oven until tender. Once cooked, turn off the oven and leave the vegetables still in the tray to keep warm. Turn on the griddle pan again to medium high. Once the griddle pan is hot, cook the turkey steaks until lightly charred on each side, but cooked through.
Put all the dressing ingredients into a bowl and whisk.
Once the turkey has cooked, remove the vegetables from the oven, and serve with the dressing drizzled on top.[/recipe]
