    Eaten without the skin, turkey makes a healthy, tasty meal. Turkey breast is the leanest of meats, and its mild flavour makes it a versatile ingredient. It also supplies high-quality protein and B vitamins.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 1/2 packet frozen chopped spinach (300g packet), thawed and well drained
    • 2/3 cup reduced-fat ricotta cheese
    • 1 egg white
    • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
    • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
    • 1 skinless, boneless turkey breast half (about 2 kg)
    • Salt
    • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves

    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large nonstick frying pan over low heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the spinach and cook, sturring occasionally, for 4 minutes. Let cool.
    2. Combine the ricotta, egg white, orange zest, pepper and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Stir in the spinach mixture. Place the turkey between 2 sheets of greaseproof paper or foil and pound to a 2 cm thickness. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Spread the ricotta mixture on the turkey and roll up from one long side. Tie the roast to secure it, then place seam-side-down in a small baking dish.
    3. Brush with the remaining oil and sprinkle with the rosemary and salt to taste. Roast for 1 hour or until browned and cooked through.
