Teriyaki ground turkey zucchini noodle is one of the ways I get one of my kids to eat more vegetables. Anytime I spiralize the vegetables they (she and her siblings) always ask for more, so this a great to eat more veggies. I spiralized the zucchini to make look it like pasta or noodle (which they all like).
I used [sc name=”Affiliate link” ]Gourmia GSS9210 Spiral Slicer Vegetable Spiralizer Includes 3 Interchangeable Slicing Blades Great for Veggie Spaghetti, Pasta, Salad, Potatoes & More Striking Red Finish, BPA free, I have had my fair share in the purchasing spiralizer not until I bought this one (picture below) and ever since I have no complaint and it works for me/us. I will share other recipes I used my spiralizer for later on. Let’s get started!
- 3 Zucchini (About 1.5 Pounds); spiralized
- 1 Carrot (peeled and grated)
- 1.5 Pounds Ground turkey
- 1/2 Cup Teriyaki sauce
- 1 Tablespoon Oil (your choice)
- 1 Onion (chopped/diced)
- 1 Tablespoon Minced garlic
- Salt and pepper
Spiralize the zucchini and set aside.
Peel and grate/spiralize the carrot. Set aside
Place a large skillet/saucepan over medium-high heat.
Add oil and saute the minced garlic and onion until translucent.
Add the ground turkey and break apart. Cook until it is no longer pink.
Add teriyaki sauce and mix.
Add the spiralized/grated carrot and combine. Drain any liquid you have in the pan.
Add the spiralized zucchini and combine, add salt and pepper.
Combine and turn off the heat. You don't want the heat because zucchini contains water and you don't want it all mushy and cook all the nutrients.
Serve and Enjoy!
