Pan Fried Turkey Cooked In Creamy Cashew Nut Sauce

This is the recipe for a healthy lunch or dinner made in less then 20 minutes.

It is rich in lean protein and complex carbohydrates.
I find turkey breast rather dry and this is a great recipe to make it nicely juicy. The sauce is made of cashew nut milk, Dijon mustard, mushrooms and red pepper. I like to have it with cooked brown rice, sweet potato or quinoa.
