HEALTHY RECIPE: Turkey With Blueberry Pan Sauce

Blueberries have just the right mix of acid and pectin so that they’re terrific in both sweet and savory dishes. They work especially well with thyme – so this easy turkey saute can be a delight whenever the berries are in season. To make this dish into a meal, dress some quick-cooking barley in lemon and pepper and offer steamed green beans on the side.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pound turkey tenderloin
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped shallots
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Whisk flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Dredge turkey in the mixture. (Discard any leftover flour.)
  2. Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over high heat. Add the turkey; cook until golden brown on one side, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn the turkey over and transfer the pan to the oven. Roast until the turkey is just cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer the turkey to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.
  3. Place the skillet over medium heat. (Take care, the handle will still be very hot.) Add shallots and thyme and cook, stirring constantly, until the shallots begin to brown, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add blueberries, vinegar, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; continue cooking, stirring occasionally and scraping up any brown bits, until the blueberries burst and release their juices and the mixture becomes thick and syrupy, 4 to 5 minutes. Slice the turkey and serve with the blueberry pan sauce.
