Smoked Turkey and Cranberry Chutney Rollups

  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 (12-ounce) bag cranberries
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup orange marmalade
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and finely chopped
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons Chinese 5-spice powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 8 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, room temperature
  • 8 ounces nonfat cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 pound thinly sliced smoked turkey
  • 16 whole wheat tortillas
  • Spinach or leaf lettuce

Pre-prep: Toast and chop walnuts. Bring cream cheese to room temperature. Mince ginger.

Preheat oven to 350º F. Combine ginger, cranberries and sugar in 13 x 9½-inch baking pan, tightly cover with aluminum foil and bake for 50 minutes. Remove from oven; add orange marmalade, walnuts and spices, stir well and cool to room temperature.

Meanwhile, whip cream cheese together in a food processor until smooth. Spread each tortilla with a thin layer of cream cheese; leave a 1-inch perimeter around the edges. Cover with a layer of the cranberries, followed by a layer of sliced turkey; top with spinach or lettuce leaves.

Tightly tuck one side of wrapper, keeping spinach flat; roll away from you, jellyroll style. With the seam side down, cut with sharp knife into 1-inch slices for appetizers or in half for larger servings. Serve with cut and exposed to show the red, white and green.

You can easily substitute Thanksgiving leftovers; even port tenderloin or chicken, for the smoked turkey in this beautiful wrapper. Makes 16 wraps.
