Turkey Cutlets, Soy Sauce/Mustard Marinade
Spanish Rice
Sautéed Chard with Red Pepper

Cooking time:  30 minutes for menu      Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

     Grilled turkey cutlets, rice and fried chard - simple summer cooking.

Soy Sauce/Mustard Turkey Cutlets, Grilled

Total time: 25 minutes 
     Thin turkey cutlets go well with any marinade and are quickly cooked for an easy main course.  Thin pork or veal cutlets can be substituted, or chicken breasts.  If you can't find turkey, and want it, buy a breast or tenderloin and either have your butcher slice it or do it yourself.

Soy Sauce/Mustard Turkey Cutlets Ingredients:


Spanish Rice

Total time: 30 minutes 
     The grated, fresh tomato adds more of the scent of tomato than a heavy flavor, making healthy, brown rice a bit more interesting. You could substitute Basmati.

Spanish Rice Ingredients:


Note:  To grate tomato: Cup half of a tomato in your hand and rub it on the big holes of a box (or other style) grater until all that is left in your hand is the skin.  You'll have to press a bit, but not too hard. Be careful not to grate your hand.
