Thanksgiving Turkey Re-Made!
I am absolutely in love with this Black Garlic Sauce from Oil & Vinegar! The less pungent, sweeter, more refined flavor of black garlic makes this sauce mild, soft, and adds tantalizing flavor to almost anything you put it on.
In this Thanksgiving turkey re-make, I combined cooked baby potatoes, green beans, peas, and left-over turkey (you can also use grilled or rotisserie chicken too) and drizzled generously with the black garlic sauce to make the most enticing leftovers ever.
Serve with a piece of crusty bread to sop up the sauce, and leftovers never tasted better!
But you can BE BRAVE and use this sauce on all sorts of other dishes – -a little smoked white fish, a roasted potato salad, or drizzled over a steak or beef tenderloin at the holidays. It is absolutely delicious and will be the hit at the table.
Turkey & New Potatoes with Black Garlic Dressing
1 ½ lbs baby new potatoes
1 lb green beans (or asparagus), ends trimmed
3 cups chopped cooked turkey or rotisserie chicken
1 ½ cups peas (fresh or frozen)
½ cup O&V Black Garlic Sauce (more to drizzle) *
1-2 tablespoons O&V Unflavored EVOO to drizzle *
Purple Basil or Sweet Basil leaves for garnish
Cook the baby new potatoes in boiling, well salted water for 10 minutes or until just tender. Drain, set aside to cool and then halve.
Trim and cut the beans/asparagus. Blanch the beans/asparagus along with the peas for two minutes in boiling salted water and then plunge into ice cold water to cool. Drain well.
Toss the cooked turkey with the vegetables, potatoes and Black Garlic Sauce. Place in a serving bowl and drizzle with additional sauce, the EVOO and garnish with the basil leaves.
Serve with crusty bread.
Total Time: 18 minutes
* The Black Garlic Sauce is an incredible, mildly sweet and tantalizing sauce available at most Oil & Vinegar stores. It is perfect in this recipe to change out the flavors of traditional Thanksgiving leftovers, but can easily be used as a finishing sauce on beef tenderloin, grilled portobello mushrooms, roasted potatoes, and so much more. There really is no substitute for this, but it is totally worth trying!
A nice quality Unflavored EVOO adds another layer of flavor to this dish – the quality and taste of the oil will shine through, so be sure to use an excellent EVOO.
