TURKEY PROTEIN CAKE WITH VEGETABLES
Thinking about recipes for healthy, protein and light dinners is not easy. To avoid giving us a binge, to get home hungry after a long day of work, I propose to make the famous turkey protein cake (healthy version). It is far from the classic recipe that our mothers do, but it will boost your training benefits. Here is the recipe of turkey protein cake.
In this protein cake, we have opted for the turkey for being a lean meat with the highest protein content. It is the most protein meat, with chicken, with 24’2 gr per 100 of product. Logically, there are more fatty parts than others, but the breast is ideal for this dish. In addition, we will use egg and milk, in which we also find some protein content.
You should not fear that it is a heavy recipe since more than three-quarters are turkey and vegetables. Choose the vegetables that you like the most, although in this case, we have chosen peppers (green and piquillo) next to the onion. The use of spices will also give a different touch. If you can, reduce or avoid the contribution of salt and take the opportunity to enjoy the natural flavor of this piece of cake.
As for the flour, you can use any integral or whole grains to make the version healthier.
-500 grams of turkey minced meat
-4 tablespoons of oatmeal
-1 pot of piquillo peppers

WE PREHEAT THE OVEN
We put the oven at 170º C, with heat up and down.
WE MAKE A FIRST MIX
In the bowl of oatmeal, add a little nutmeg and skim milk. We stir until we have a homogeneous paste.
In another bowl, add the chopped turkey, peppers (piquillo and green) and onion. Stir well and add the egg together with the first mixture.
Pour salt and pepper to taste, and stir everything to get me to mix correctly.
