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?

what’s your favorite easy weeknight taco combo? 🌮 #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
