Turkey Cutlet Smothered in Vegetables


    freshly ground black pepper
1 ea turkey cutlet (3-4-oz), pounded thin
1 Tbsp butter or olive oil
3 Tbsp chopped onion
1/3 cup seeded and sliced pepper, preferably a thin-skinned type
1/2 tsp chopped garlic
1/2 cup peeled, seeded and chopped tomato
1/2 cup coarsely chopped yellow summer squash
1 to 2 Tbsp chapped celery leaves or parsley
    salt, to taste


Generously pepper turkey cutlet.  Dip it in flour, shaking off excess, and set aside.

Heat butter in large frying pan.  Add onion, garlic and sliced pepper.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes.  Move vegetables to one side, tilt pan so fat runs into center and brown turkey cutlet on both sides.  Remove from pan and set aside.  Spoon out all but a film of fat.  Add tomato, summer squash and celery leaves.  Cook, stirring frequently, for 3 minutes, or until vegetables cook down slightly.  You may need to add 1 tablespoon of stock or water.

Return cutlet to pan and cook another 3 to 5 minutes or until cooked through.  Taste and season with salt if you wish.

Place cutlet on plate and top with vegetables.
