Turkey Stroganoff

I was looking for a way to use some ground turkey I got on sale.  I hadn't used any of my Marlene Koch "Eat What You Love" series of cookbooks lately and so I pulled them out to find a recipe using ground turkey.

I love all of her books and have not been disappointed in a single recipe....they're all geared towards recipes low in fat, sugar, and calories.  This recipe was no exception.  Delicious and guilt-free.  Oh, and easy, too.  Steam or roast some broccoli for a perfect weeknight dinner.


1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1 Tbsp coarse-ground mustard
1 tsp canola oil
1 pound lean ground turkey
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tsp minced garlic
1 pound mushrooms, sliced
1/2 tsp dried thyme (I added a bit more)
2 Tbsp AP flour
1 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
black pepper to taste
1/2 tsp salt (optional)
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
3 cups cooked wide noodles (optional)

In a small bowl, stir together sour cream and mustard.  Set aside.

Heat the oil in a very large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, and crumble in the turkey.  Cook for 3-4 minutes, or just until browned.  Remove from skillet and set aside.

Add the onion to the hot pan and cook for 3 minutes.  Add the garlic and saute for 30 seconds.  Add the mushrooms, and crush the thyme in with your fingers.  Stir and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the onion and mushrooms are soft.  Sprinkle with flour over the onion mixture, and stir.

Add the broth and cook, stirring, until the mixture bubbles and thickens.  Reduce heat to medium-low, stir in the turkey, black pepper and salt, and cook for 1 minute.  Stir in the sour cream mixture.  Cook briefly until slightly thickened and hot, do not boil.  Sprinkle with parsley and serve over cooked noodles, if preferred.
