Hi, I'm Rachelle

I cook delicious healthy recipes that are simple to make, with wholesome fresh ingredients.

This morning I definitely felt a cooler breeze in the air. So that can only mean one thing: time for warming comfort food! My Healthy Ground Turkey Stroganoff is light and super satisfying. You can also make this dish in under 30 minutes. I love easy quick meals during the week to make.

I choose to use ground turkey for this recipe to make it lighter. You can use also use ground chicken, extra lean ground beef or even plant based ground meat alternative. You can substitute sour cream with Greek yogurt. Full-fat Greek yogurt works the best. Do whatever makes you happy!

Keep it classic and serve the Healthy Ground Turkey Stroganoff sauce over egg noodles for an easy weeknight meal. You can also serve it over rice, pasta or mashed potatoes. I  always have a list of one-pot meals that I can throw together on those days when I don’t feel like cooking and this is easier than you think to make.

Another great plus–the leftovers are even better than the first time you make it! So this is a great lunch-prep recipe as well.

    OMG – this is SO SO SO good!!! We made this last night using greek yogurt instead of sour cream, and browned the mushrooms prior to adding to the meat. The flavor was incredible! Even my husband ate it – and that is saying a lot!!!

    Next time we are going to serve it over cauliflower rice for an even lower carb count! Cannot wait to make it again!!!

    This was sooooo tasty. We love beef stroganoff but the beef is so bad for you. This was a great alternative and is now our new favourite. So easy and quick to make. Thank you for a great recipe.
