Ground Turkey Stir Fry with Zucchini Noodles
So yesterday I posted my favorite way to make zucchini noodles so I thought I'd follow up by posting one of my favorite dishes to make with them! This stir fry is a quick low calorie alternative to regular stir fry. It came together quickly and had a little something for everyone so my kids could at least eat the part that appealed to them :)
I used a store bought sauce and added my own spices to it so that saved a little time. If you do go with a store bought sauce just watch the sugar content! I like San-J Teriyaki sauce and marinade. It's super tasty and only has 3g of carbohydrate. Or, if you have some extra time, make your own sauce!
Stir Fry w/ ground Turkey and zucchini noodles (serves 4)
1 recipe zucchini noodles
1 lb. lean ground turkey
4 cups frozen stir fry veggies
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. red pepper flake
sesame seeds (to taste)
3/4 cup teriyaki sauce (I use San-j teriyaki or you can make your own)
In a large pan cook ground turkey until cooked through. Add frozen veggies and cover. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until veggies are thawed and crisp tender. Add seasonings and sesame seeds and continue cooking 2 minutes or until garlic is fragrant. Toss with cooked zucchini noodles and teriyaki sauce. Cook until sauce is heated through and enjoy!
