Miso Glazed Grilled Turkey Breast
Serve with rice and Asian cucumber salad- All of the glaze ingredients are pretty much staples in my house so I can whip up this recipe fairly regularly and I do. It's become a staple in my house as each of us can indivdualize as desired; "as is", chopped up and added to salad greens or over rice, layered in a quesadilla, bread or burrito. It's a great and healthier alternative to processed lunch meats.

    Recipe Notes

    Extra firm tofu slices would be a great substitute for the turkey breasts. You would need to shorten the grill time to 5 minutes per side.

    The Asian cucumber salad benefits from a marinating so if you have the time, prepare the salad one hour prior to serving.
