Heart Smart Low Sodium

Your body uses tryptophan (from turkey) to produce serotonin, a hormone that makes you feel happy and relaxed.


2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 small onion, diced
1 cup diced celery
3 cups diced turkey breast
1/4 cup whole-wheat flour
2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
3 cups frozen peas and carrots, thawed
1 teaspoon ground thyme
nonstick cooking spray
6 medium potatoes, baked, peeled and mashed
