Italian food is all about simple flavor combinations. This speedy recipe brings together balsamic vinegar, garlic and lemon to create a dish you'll want to make again and again.

  • Ingredients
  • Method


1½lbs small Yukon Gold, red or white potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup fat-free vinaigrette
cooking spray
3 tbsp tomato paste
Juice of 1 lemon
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp dried basil
4 boneless skinless turkey breast steaks
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar


  1. Put the potatoes in a large saucepan and add cold water to just cover. Add a pinch of salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, partially cover, and simmer for 10-12 minutes until tender. Drain the potatoes and return to the pot. Add the vinaigrette and lightly crush with a potato masher. Season to taste with salt and pepper and cover to keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  3. In a cup, mix together the tomato paste, lemon juice, garlic and basil.
  4. Spread the tomato mixture over the turkey to coat both sides. Place on the prepared baking sheet.  
  5. Broil the turkey 4-6 inches from the heat source for -3-4 minutes, until lightly golden. Drizzle the balsamic vinegar over the turkey steaks and then turn them over and broil for 3-5 minutes or until cooked through, watch carefully, these cook quickly.
  6. Serve the steaks with the crushed potatoes and your favorite vegetables.
