Instead of using turkey breast, or cooking a whole bird for a mid week meal, try the cheaper cuts like a joint. The meat is darker because it is closer to the bone, but it is also more flavoursome than the somewhat boring white meat.



You get a lot of meat from this particular cut of meat, so do as I do and store the leftovers in the fridge, to be used as sandwich fillers, or part of another meal throughout the week.

Preparation Time:5 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Makes: 6 servings

Ingredients
1 turkey joint
1 tablespoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil
18 asparagus spears
25ml balsamic vinegar
50g feta cheese
3 garlic cloves

Method
Place the turkey on a greased baking tray.



Season with the herbs and pepper add the garlic cloves around the edges and place in the oven for 50 minutes, gas mark 3/170 degrees.



Remove the turkey from the oven and pour over a 'glug' of olive oil, then place back in the oven for 40 minutes.



Wash the asparagus and place in the griddle pan over a medium heat for 10 minutes.



Ensure they are golden brown before removing from the pan.



Remove the turkey from the oven and begin to carve off pieces of the meat.



Place the carved meat in a bowl and pour over the juices from the bottom of the tray.



Pour the vinegar into a small bowl and add chunks of the feta.



Add the asparagus and 'dress' in the feta and vinegar mix.



Either serve the meal in two seperate bowls which people can dig into, or follow the steps below for individual servings.

Serve three asparagus spears per person, crumble with feta, drizzle with the gravy like juices and add a generous portion of meat.



Although there are no potatoes, this is a filling, healthy, and delicious dish, which all of the family can enjoy.

The leftover turkey can be stored in the fridge for up to one week, in an airtight container.
