Mediterranean Turkey Cutlets

These turkey cutlets, especially served with hummus, take me right back to my teenage visits to Israel. I love the flavors of cumin and coriander, which I think most people feel intimidated to cook with. If that’s you, I urge you to try this one! It’s definitely a worthy investment in these wonderful spices—which you will hopefully use again and again. When I was still leading Weight Watchers meetings in Los Angeles, one of my members kindly gave me Steve Raichlen’s Healthy Jewish Cooking. I couldn’t believe that even Mr. Picky said, “F— yum! Even the strange green balls.” (Referring to the Basil Pearled Cous Cous—one of my favorite sides. Add a sprinky-dink of salt to make the flavors pop.) I kept a theme and served the cutlets with a simple Israeli-style salad, delicious Low Fat Hummus with Greek Yogurt (see Fav Food Finds) and sautéed mushrooms. So easy. Sooo good. Very healthy. Definite redo! For Passover Substitute matzo meal for the flour and bread crumbs. Breading Tip I learned a great trick from Chef Anne Burrell (I LOVE Secrets of a Restaurant Chef): when breading anything, use one hand for wet and one hand for dry ingredients; that way you don’t end up breading your fingers! Orna’s Notes The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup egg substitute, but I prefer using the real deal. He uses 1 cup bread crumbs or cracker crumbs, but I love the extra crunch and crispiness of Panko bread crumbs. You can find them in the Japanese section of your market, though most markets now carry them next to the regular bread crumbs; they are the Japanese-style breadcrumbs—crispy and flakey. Even Trader Joe’s now carries them. If you like cumin, be sure to try my delicious Cowboy Caviar recipe >>  Mediterranean Turkey Cutlets 2013-08-06 15:42:06 Yields 6 Write a review Save Recipe Print Prep Time 15 min Cook Time 12 min Total Time 30 min Prep Time 15 min Cook Time 12 min Total Time 30 min 234 calories 38 g 74 g 4 g 13 g 1 g 96 g 623 g 2 g 0 g 2 g Nutrition Facts Serving Size 96g Yields 6 Amount Per Serving Calories 234 Calories from Fat 31 % Daily Value * Total Fat 4g 5% Saturated Fat 1g 5% Trans Fat 0g Polyunsaturated Fat 1g Monounsaturated Fat 1g Cholesterol 74mg 25% Sodium 623mg 26% Total Carbohydrates 38g 13% Dietary Fiber 2g 10% Sugars 2g Protein 13g Vitamin A6%Vitamin C13% Calcium7%Iron14% * Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet.
