Almost Homemade Dinner

***Almost Homemade Dinner*** 

You can't make this in 20 minutes (because the tenderloin takes about an hour to bake) but it is still super simple and delicious. 

This turkey breast tenderloin is lean, mean, and already marinated. Turn on the oven, put it in a pan and be patient. 

I set my timer for 40 minutes, to alert me that I had about 15-20 minutes of cooking time left. That's when I started the multi-grain minute melody. It has quinoa, rice, and other complex grains that provides excellent fiber grams. 

Just because it is quick cooking, doesn't make it less healthy. To help with flavor, I cooked it in low-sodium chicken broth and 1 tbsp of olive oil. Look, you won't get your kids to eat healthy things if it taste like cardboard. 

The last 10 minutes of cooking time on the tenderloin, I added the asparagus into the oven with it on the bottom rack. A little olive oil and salt, toss them and they are good to go. 

If your asparagus is not finished cooking by the time your tenderloin reaches about 150F, then just leave them in a few more minutes while your meat cools enough to cut and eat. 

We did homework while this was baking. It is not a "quick meal" but you can't get much easier to have a "homemade meal".
