Ground Turkey Stroganoff

A lighter, healthier version of a classic family dish, this ground turkey stroganoff recipe is sure to be a dinner table success!

I dont eat red meat anymore. This was a decision my husband probably would have liked to have been involved in before I completely overhauled our weekly menu but unfortunately for him the documentary I watched on veganism and the meat industry got to me before he had a chance to protest.

Luckily for my carnivorious husband, the documentary did not convert me to veganism, although I wholeheartedly admire the lifestyle. It did however inspire me to start making changes to my diet.

For every recipe of mine that included ground beef, I simply swapped the ground beef for ground turkey. Tacos, spaghetti bolognese, meatballs, stroganoff, all ground turkey. Maybe you’re trying to elimanate red meat from your diet as well, or maybe you’rejust looking for a wicked good (yes, I’m from the northeast USA) ground turkey recipe. Either way, I’m sure you’ll find this one not only delicious, but easy enough to make that you can add it to your weekly rotation.

My recipe is simple and consisting of ground turkey, onions, peas, egg noodles, worcestershire sauce, sour cream and seasoned with salt, pepper and a little bit of nutmeg.
