I threw this delightful dish together at the end of the week last week. I had a broccoli crown in the refrigerator that really needed using up and I was wanting to eat something healthy. I also had a couple of leeks that were almost past their best and so I wanted to use them as well.
Turkey and broccoli go really well together. I had a pack of turkey steaks in the refrigerator and so I cut them into strips, which I sauteed along with the leeks.
I thought Todd would protest if I tried to serve him pasta yet again, and so I used a package of potato gnocchi which I had in the cupboard . . . they are kinda like little potato dumplings. I love them and tend to use them like I would potatoes. They work well that way.
A simple sauce of creme fraiche (I used 50% less fat creme fraiche) and some grainy Dijon mustard along with a bit of orange juice from an orange that had seen better days to loosen it up and I had a delicious sauce to toss together with everything in the pan. I finished it off with some chopped toasted walnuts for some added texture and crunch.
It all worked together beautifully and came together in a flash. It was complete and on the table in less than 20 minutes. I like dishes like that, because I am rather lazy you know. And when I am hungry, I am hungry. I hope you'll try it. It is really very delicious! (The leftovers were quite delicious re-heated the day after as well!)
