Ground walnuts thicken this unique sauce and give it both a subtle nuttiness and an appealing creamy texture, both of which are perfect with turkey.
1/3 cup walnuts
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, chopped
Pinch ground cloves
Pinch ground cinnamon
Pinch cayenne
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons flour
3/4 cup canned low-sodium chicken broth or homemade stock
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon cooking oil
4 turkey cutlets (about 1 1/4 pounds in all)
1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
Turkey with Walnut Parmesan Sauce Recipe at
Grind 1/4 cup of the walnuts to a powder in a food processor. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over moderately low heat. Add the onion; cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, 30 seconds longer. Stir in the cloves, cinnamon, cayenne, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Add the flour and stir to combine. Whisk in the broth and simmer until starting to thicken, about 3 minutes. Add the ground walnuts and simmer 1 minute longer. Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice, Parmesan, and parsley.

In a large nonstick frying pan, heat the oil over moderately high heat. Season the turkey with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and the pepper. Cook the turkey cutlets until just done, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Serve with the walnut sauce, sprinkling the additional nuts over the top.

Menu Suggestions

Roasted asparagus and sauteed peppers are vegetables that taste particularly good with both walnuts and Parmesan cheese.
