Maple Ginger Marinated Turkey Breast

  • 1/4 c. Eden Organic Tamari Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. ginger root, minced
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 7 to 8 lb. bone - in, skin - on turkey breast
  • Olive oil

Whisk together the soy sauce, oil, maple syrup, lemon juice, garlic, ginger, black pepper, cloves and cayenne pepper in a glass or porcelain dish large enough to hold the turkey. Place turkey in marinade and turn to coat thoroughly. Marinate in refrigerator for 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a heavy rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly coat with olive oil. Remove turkey from marinade and place skin side up on baking sheet. Discard remaining marinade. Roast turkey for 2 to 2 1/2 hours. The temperature should read 170 degrees on a meat thermometer. Remove turkey breast from oven and let rest for 15 minutes before carving and serving. Remove skin before eating.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
