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.

Turkey, Broccoli and Carrot Noodle Bake

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!

Turkey, Broccoli and Carrot Noodle Bake

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

Turkey, Broccoli and Carrot Noodle Bake

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time35 mins

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

  • 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.
  • 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?

THREE BEST WAYS TO COOK ZUCCHINI NOODLES 🍝 ⁣

we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
