Ingredients

  • 4-6 pounds Turkey bone in breast
  • 1/4 cup clarified organic butter
    or ghee or butter if no dairy issues
  • 2 tsp turmeric dried ground
  • 1 tsp paprika
    dried ground
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
    dried ground
  • salt and pepper
    to taste
  • 1 tsp cardamom dried ground
  • 3 cups seasonal vegetables
    chopped (we used Brussel sprouts, potatoes and onions cut into bite sized pieces)
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degree F or 162 degrees C.
  • Spray a roasting pan with cooking spray
  • Pour your ghee or clarified butter (you can make your own clarified butter by just heating your butter slowly on the stove until clear, strain any solids) Place your bone in turkey breast in the roasting pan. Rub your turkey on all sides with your clarified butter (ghee) and then sprinkle with turmeric, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste, cardamom if using dried. (if using whole cardamom pods just lightly crush and add to the roasting pan.
  • Add seasonal vegetables and pour chicken broth around the sides of the bone in turkey breast. Season the vegetables with salt and pepper to taste. Cover your turmeric spiced turkey breast with aluminum foil and secure around edges.
  • Bake for ½ hour. Remove aluminum foil from your turkey and baste turkey. Place turkey back into the oven and baste every 15 minutes until the turkey is golden brown, the internal temperature is 165 degree F and the juices run clear. Remove the turkey from the oven to rest and keep warm for 10 minutes. (cooking time will be around 1 1/2 to 2 1/4 hours for a 4-6 pound bone in turkey breast)
  • Carve your Turkey and enjoy!

Notes

Nutrition information is based on 1 serving of turkey and a half cup of brussel sprouts.
We used ghee as we have a dairy sensitivity. If you do not have a dairy sensitivity, please free to use butter.
