4 apples, quartered, core removed
2 oranges, quartered
1 onion, peeled and quartered
2 tablespoons fresh thyme
20 fresh sage leaves
12 ounces turkey tenderloin, left whole or thinly sliced
1/4 cup apricot spreadable 100% fruit
1 teaspoon coconut aminos
1 teaspoon Dr. Fuhrman's VegiZest or other no-salt seasoning blend
2 cloves garlic, pressed


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a baking pan, arrange apples, oranges, and onion close together. Lay herbs on top of fruit. Place tenderloins on top of fruit, onion, and herb mixture. If using turkey scallops, fan out on top of each other and place over apple, orange, onion and herb mixture.

Mix apricot spread, coconut aminos, VegiZest and garlic. Generously spread turkey with sauce. Cover loosely with foil and bake for 30-35 minutes until turkey juices run clear when pricked in center with a fork.

Wonderful! I was a bit hesitant to try but my meat eating family needed something new. My dh and children loved this recipe. I will definitely make it again and again.

Excellent! My non ETL family - husband and 3 kids (15,14 and 9) loved this. To have each of them like the same recipe is just short of a miracle!!!

Are we supposed to peel the apples and oranges? It may seem obvious but it's not to me. I choose to peel this time but wonder what others did. This looks fabulous and I know I'll be making it again either way.

Wow! What a surprise! This was great and we all loved it! I found it difficult to find turkey tenderloins this time of year so I used chicken breasts or tenderloins, thinly sliced, and 2 tsp of dried thyme rather than fresh, but fresh Sage. Otherwise the same instructions. (I did not peel the apples or oranges.) Try it, you'll like it!

Incredible! I couldn't find turkey so I used chicken breasts and ground sage, and low sodium soy sauce instead of braggs. The apples are so flavorful once cooked with the seasonings and sauce. My husband requested that we have this multiple times, so that's awesome!

What do you do with the apples and oranges does it all just bake down. I have it in the oven right now and I sure hope I did it right?

This one was strange.  The turkey was very tasty, but some of the fruit in it was not good.  The cooked apple and onion were fine, but the cooked orange was sour and didn't taste good.  I think if I make this again, I would skip the fruit and eat it raw.  It would taste better and be healthier anyway.
