Mustard Crusted Turkey Breast With Carrots and Broccoli

May 21, 2006

1 pound carrots (6 to 8 medium), peeled and cut on the diagonal into 2-inch lengths

3 teaspoons olive oil

Coarse salt and ground pepper

1 boneless turkey breast half (2 pounds)

3 tablespoons whole-grain mustard, plus more for serving (optional)

1 pound broccoli, cut into large florets, tough ends of stalks trimmed, peeled and sliced 1/4-inch thick

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss carrots with 1 teaspoon oil; season with salt and pepper. Push carrots to edges of baking sheet; place turkey in center, skin side up. Coat top of turkey with mustard; season with salt and pepper. Roast until beginning to brown, 20 to 25 minutes.

In a large bowl, toss broccoli with remaining 2 teaspoons oil. Season with salt and pepper; toss broccoli with carrots on baking sheet. Continue roasting, tossing vegetables once, until turkey is browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted in center registers 165 degrees, 30 to 40 minutes.


Transfer turkey to a cutting board; tent loosely with aluminum foil, and let rest, 5 to 10 minutes. Slice turkey and serve with vegetables, accompanied by mustard, if desired.

Serves 6.
