Turkey Fricassee

Transform your turkey leftovers into a tasty and nutritious meal that's ready in minutes. Carrots are bursting with the powerful antioxidant beta-carotene, which the body converts to Vitamin A to strengthen your immune system and keep bones healthy. Not only is this recipe a great way to use up protein-packed turkey, it's also a superbly healthy dish that'll counteract some of the season's indulgences.
