- 1 beet (diced)
- 2 garlic cloves (chopped)
- 1 teaspoon capers
- olive oil (to taste)
- 1 teaspoon mustard
- fresh dill (to taste)
- 1/2 bunch cilantro (chopped)
- 1 turkey breast (to be filled)
- salt (to taste)
- pepper (to taste)
- ground mustard (to taste)
- 3 chives (chopped)
- raspberry vinaigrette (to taste)
- Author´s suggestion: Purchase the meat at a butcher, letting them know it is to be filled. Typically, they will make it into a ¨pocket¨, which is perfect to fill with whatever you wish.
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
- Combine the beet, garlic, capers, and olive oil in a wok or a frying pan and saute them well.
- Add the mustard, dill, and cilantro and turn off the heat.
- Stuff the turkey breast using a bit of cooking twine or toothpicks to close the ¨pocket¨ well so that they do not open during cooking. Place them in a cooking pan.
- Season them with the salt, pepper, ground mustard, and a drizzle of olive oil.
- Add the chives and sprinkle with the raspberry vinaigrette.
- Bake them until the meat is cooked. Five minutes before turning off the oven, add a touch more vinaigrette and turn up the heat to broil so that it carmelizes.
- Serve with basmati rice and granish with a few sprigs of fresh fennel.
