Healthy cooking hints……………….

To save on fat and calories, use low-fat plain yogurt in place of sour cream or mayonnaise, and buy low-fat cheese and milk instead of full-fat versions, says O’Rourke. Add flavor to vegetables with low-fat cheese, nuts, salad dressing or margarine with no trans fat; then add herbs and spices. Blatner suggests an Italian blend on green beans, curry on cauliflower, cumin on sauteed bell peppers, and lemon pepper on broccoli.

You can find this recipe along with all the other delicious and healthy recipes at the Jennie – O Turkey website. Enjoy and Make the SWITCH in 2019! https://www.jennieo.com/

Spicy Turkey Kabobs with Tangy Yogurt Sauce
This is a Gluten Free Recipe.

This recipe is under 300 calories per serving, and these no-gluten turkey kabobs are baked with garlic, mint and coriander. It’s a mouth-watering Middle Eastern dinner on a stick!

INGREDIENTS
KABOBS
1 (16-ounce) package JENNIE-O® Lean Ground Turkey
½ cup finely chopped yellow onion
1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
½ teaspoon ground mustard
½ teaspoon salt, if desired
½ teaspoon black pepper

SAUCE
¾ cup plain low-fat yogurt
¼ cup Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
½ teaspoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon ground cumin
fresh cilantro, mint or parsley, for garnish

DIRECTIONS
1) For kabobs: Heat oven to 400°F. In large mixing bowl combine turkey, onion, 1 tablespoon garlic, mint, 2 teaspoons cumin, coriander, mustard, salt and black pepper. There will be about 2½ cups of mixture. Form mixture into balls, directly onto the skewers. Meatballs should be approximately 1½-inches across with the skewer running through the middle. Leave about ½-inch between each meatball. Place skewers on non-stick baking sheet. Skewers should be evenly spaced and not touching. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until meatballs are well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Turn meatballs once halfway through cooking.
2) Prepare sauce while the kabobs are baking. In bowl of food processor or blender combine yogurt, mustard, cilantro, 1 teaspoon garlic, lemon juice and ½ teaspoon ground cumin. Blend until smooth. Sauce should be the consistency of thick cream.
3) To serve: Place 1 (12-inch) skewer on each plate. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon sauce and garnish with cilantro, mint or parsley.
* Always cook to an internal temperature of 165°F.
