Ground Turkey Pumpkin Zoodles

pumpkin zoodles

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb lean ground turkey or chicken
  • 1/2 can organic pure pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 3 large zucchinis, spiralized
  • 1/4 yellow onion
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

In a large pot, heat the coconut oil over medium heat and add the garlic and onions. Sautee until the onions are translucent. Add the ground turkey to the pot and cook on medium heat for about 7-8 minutes or until the turkey is full cooked. Take a spatula to the turkey and separate any large chunks. Add the pumpkin and almond milk to the meat and reduce heat to low. Stir every couple of minutes for 5 minutes while the turkey simmers. Add the oregano, salt, and pepper. Stir one more time and then add the zucchini noodles. Stir these in really well and increase heat to medium again. Cover the pot and allow the zucchini noodles to cook on medium for 5 minutes, and then reduce heat to low for another 5 minutes. The noodles should be perfect at this point. Cook longer for softer zucchini or less time for harder zucchini. I like them in-between. Turn the pot off and allow everything to cool for 5 minutes before serving. Happy fall!
