Turkey, Broccoli and Carrot Noodle Bake

A quick weeknight skillet meal that gets cooked in one pan! This lean protein and veggie bake saves well for meal prep, is easy to make, and a fun way to use your spiralizer on carrots! 

Turkey, Broccoli and Carrot Noodle Bake

After the crazy overnight success (ha!) that my Chicken Sausage, Sweet Potato Noodle and Brussels Sprouts bake was, I figured I better deliver you all another easy skillet meal.

And this one does not disappoint – it’s a quick, skillet meal that’s great for busy weeknights and best of all, it saves well as leftovers OR beforehand, as a meal prep meal.

The key to saving time here is steaming your veggies. Once you get that out of the way, it all happens in one pot – you brown the turkey meat and add in the seasonings and steamed veggies, top with mozz, and voila – a healthy meal on the table.

The garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper are the only seasonings you need here – it’s one of those dishes you cook and you’re like, “How does this taste so good, there’s only, like, 5 ingredients?” Cooking doesn’t have to be fancy to taste good!

If you don’t eat meat, you can swap in quinoa or crumble some pre-cooked tofu.

This week, I’m traveling so much and kinda freaking out about it. I’m in upstate NY now (have been since Sunday) and then on Wednesday night, I leave for Florida because I’m going on HSN again! This week is pretty much the most time I’ve spent away from the baby since he’s been born!

But you know what? It’s good for me and him, so I’m trying not to stress too much about it. It’s healthy for us.

Anyway – I’m going on HSN on Thursday, October 18th and the Inspiralizer will be $24.95!! You can watch live and purchase live or purchase on their website, here. Wish me luck – and get some early holiday shopping done!

Nutritional Information & Recipe

Serves 3-4

Turkey, Broccoli and Carrot Noodle Bake

10 minPrep Time

25 minCook Time

35 minTotal Time

Save RecipeSave Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 large carrot, peeled, Blade D, noodles trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon oregano flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. Steam the broccoli until fork tender (about 7 minutes) and then steam the carrot noodles until wilted (about 5 minutes). You can do them at the same time in a steamer basket, but the carrot noodles will finish first and the broccoli will just be crunchier – but it’s a great time saver.
  2. Heat the oil in a large 10” skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the ground turkey and season with oregano, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Break up with a spoon and let cook for 5-7 minutes or until meat is no longer pink inside. Add garlic and let cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add the broccoli and carrot noodles and toss well to combine. Top with mozzarella cheese and cover the skillet with a lid until cheese melts, 2-3 minutes. Serve.

What's the best way to steam the broccoli? Being a one pot meal can broccoli be steamed in a skillet somehow?

you know what keeps me up at night? 🥺 the gut-wrenching mom guilt from worrying that this time is going to fly by (it is!) and I’m going to look back and wish I had made more one on one time with each my kids when they wanted it! it’s so hard to separate my time, and I’ll admit that I’m not great at finding ways and the right moments to do it. mamas out there who have 2 or more, what do you do to get more individual time with each of your kids?

maybe I’m putting too much pressure of myself in this season of life, but I can’t help feeling like I’m failing and I’m missing out on this adorable age! #proofofmom #motherhood #thisismotherhood #toddlermom
