TURKEY TENDERLOIN WITH SWEET POTATOES COOKED IN YOUR STEAMER IN APPROXIMATELY 15 MINUTES

Turkey’s not just for Thanksgiving; it’s a fantastic source of lean protein. Served with spicy sweet potatoes laced with Latin flair, this isn’t your typical holiday meal!

Serves 4. Serving size: 3 oz./85 g turkey; ½ cup sweet potatoes

½ tsp. kosher salt
½ tsp. onion powder
¼ tsp. black pepper
¼ tsp. garlic powder
12 oz./340 g turkey tenderloin
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 green onions, chopped
2 tbsp. cilantro
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. maple syrup
1½ tsp. of our Southwest Chipotle Seasoning Blend
Combine salt, onion powder, pepper and garlic powder. Sprinkle mixture over turkey tenderloin on all sides and place in Steamer Base. Place cubed sweet potatoes in the Colander Tray. Fill Water Tray with 1¾ cups/ 400 mL water. Place Steamer Base on top of Water Tray and Colander Tray over Steamer Base. Cover and microwave on high power for 14 minutes or until turkey juices run clear and turkey reaches an internal temperature of 165°F/75°C and sweet potatoes are tender. While turkey cooks, place the green onions and cilantro in base of Chop ’N Prep Chef. Pull cord 4–5 times to process until finely chopped. Remove cover and add olive oil, maple syrup and seasoning blend. Replace cover and pull cord 4–5 times to fully combine. In a medium bowl, combine sweet potatoes and contents of Chop ’N Prep Chef until coated. Slice turkey and serve alongside sweet potatoes.
