Turkey, sage and Parma ham rolls

Turkey, sage and Parma ham rolls

A quick and easy meal that will make everybody happy in your family. This recipe is perfect for all those evening meals when you want something satisfying but still quick and easy. Aim at putting only a slice of ham, in order not pile on unnecessary calories and saturated fats.

Try it with a cauliflower mash  (for those who have read my previous food blog on WordPress) or a sweet potatoes mash ad some garlicky spinach. (recipe coming soon for all of these sides).

Try to choose the organic variety if you can as turkey tends to be quite and intensively farmed animal, with all the hormones/antibiotic/ that came with it. I found mine in Wholefoods, but I am sure that you ca find it also in some good neighborhood butcher shop or from a organic farm delivery box.
