Leftover
 turkey is common in our houses because you can´t eat the same day the whole turkey. I don´t waste any food that is made, so, always I try to make new recipes to take advantage of everything. I was taught in this way,  I invent and if I can eat everything, I give it to friends or neighbors that wait for my gift to taste, haha. 

The turkey is a good source of proteins that make you feel fuller for more time, keep the normal level of the insulin and the muscles mass in good shape, has calcium, calories, potassium, selenium, zinc, vitamins B6 and B12, riboflavin, niacin, choline, pantothenic acid, and iron.

The ripped plantains have a lot of potassium, calories, vitamins C, B6 and A, iron, dietary fiber, sugar, magnesium, carbohydrates, and proteins, so, they are good to incorporate in moderation in our diets, also they are gluten-free and paleo-friendly.








Let´s cook!

Ingredients                                                                                                                                                                     
  1. 4  big ripped plantains (if they are not big enough, take more)
  2. salt to taste
  3. 1 to 2 pounds of leftover turkey
  4. 1 medium onion or half of 1 big
  5. 2 - 3 cloves of garlic
  6. 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  7. 1 teaspoon of oregano
  8. 1/2 teaspoon of sage (you can use any spice that you like most)
  9. 2 lemons squeezed or 1 orange squeezed
  10. Around 12 oz of tomato sauce 
  11. 2-3 tablespoon chopped parsley
  12. 1-2 tablespoon chopped chives
  13. 1 1/2 cups of cheese (your election)
  14. 2 tablespoons of butter.
  15. Dash of black pepper.
Directions

Depends on the leftover you have, you can do this recipe and take the half of this recipe for other meal or you can do all and double it on a bigger mold. If you have the turkey strips in the fridge, is more easily and rapidly to cook it.

First, shred the meat that was left of the turkey and set aside.

I made a salsa with tomatoes, onion, garlic, lemon, oregano, sage, and oil, on a skillet and put the turkey strips, stir and let them get impregnated with the flavor of the sauce, about 7-10 minutes let to be cool.

Put water with enough salt to boil in a saucepan, remember that the water has to be salty, peel the ripped plantains and cut them into pieces, about 4 or 5 each and cook until they are tender with a fork.

Preheat oven at 350 F.


Mash the ripped plantains with a fork with a pinch of black pepper and 2 teaspoons of butter,.rectify the taste of salt. Divide into 2 parts, one at the bottom of your mold,  distribute it evenly.

Put the cooked turkey strips and half of the part of the cheese. then, the other part of the mashed plantains, distribute it and put the other part of the cheese at the top of it.

Bake until cheese is completely melted, it is golden and toasted, between 20 -30 minutes, depends on your oven, keep watching it.

Let it rest, about 10 minutes, put fresh parsley and chives at the top, and you are done. Enjoy!.

The recipes yields about 6 persons.

Time to prepare the turkey: 10-15 min
Time to cook the turkey: 10 min.
Time to cook the plantains: 7-10 min

Total Time: Around 55 min.
