Have dinner ready in a flash with our three quick dishes. Combine turkey slices with a few ingredients to make an easy paella, filo pie or couscous salad.


As well as being low in fat and calories, turkey is a highly versatile and affordable ingredient. We’ve made three quick and nutritious dinners using a pack of roast turkey slices and just three other ingredients.


Stir up a fragrant paella dish in just 20 minutes by combining a jar of paella paste with rice, turkey and stir-fried vegetables. If you’re pining for pie but want to cut the calories, then our turkey filo twist makes a delicious lighter alternative with a dreamy filling of chargrilled veg, turkey and creamy ricotta. Finally, for a fresh and colourful bowl to lift the spirits, make our super speedy couscous salad, topped with roast turkey slices and ruby pomegranate seeds.
