What to Do With Leftover Turkey?

Thanksgiving is over, and if you’re like me you have at least two tubs of leftover turkey in the refrigerator. Of course, you can just re-heat the turkey, or slice it for sandwiches with your favorite allergen-free bread.

Or… you can get creative with your turkey leftovers!

Here is one idea to try:

Almost Turkey Pie

Chop leftover turkey into chunks (about two cups).
Combine turkey chunks with one small (6 oz) can of tomato paste, ½ tsp basil, and 1 tsp oregano.
Spread turkey mixture into a greased pie plate.

Prepare “crust” batter:
Blend together 2/3 cup of your favorite gluten-free flour mix with 1 cup of original hemp milk, and the equivalent of two eggs (mix 3 tsp Ener-G egg replacer with 4 tbsp. water), and ¼ tsp pepper.

Pour crust batter over turkey mixture in pie plate. Bake at 350 degrees for thirty minutes until crust is lightly browned. Slice and serve.

This recipe works really well with the dark meat leftovers. Try it and let me know how you like it!
