Going keto? Lucky for you, ground turkey is naturally low-carb and high-protein, making it a fabulous addition to your weekly cooking (and eating) rotation. Here, 14 easy keto ground turkey recipes to bookmark now and make later.
1. Low-Carb Keto Flatbread
DIY flatbread is surprisingly easy. Use it to build a Greek-inspired dish that packs plenty of spice, plus cool and creamy cucumber tzatziki sauce.
2. Meal-Prep Turkey Meatballs with Zucchini Noodles
They’re rich and juicy, but balanced out with plenty of good-for-you greens. Better yet, they’re ready in about half an hour and will last you the whole workweek.
3. Turkey-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms with Marinara and Cheese
Mushroom bowls > real bowls, any day of the week. These are stuffed with a juicy ground turkey mixture, then topped with cheese.
4. Turkey Chili
Make it on the stove-top or right in your Instant Pot pressure cooker for an easy crowd-pleasing recipe. Bonus: If you’d like to mix things up, swap in beef for turkey.
5. Easy Baked Stuffed Eggplant with Turkey
This dish tastes like it’s straight out of the Italian countryside. (Bonus: If you make it ahead of time, the flavors meld overnight and taste even better the next day.)
6. Turkey Taco Salad Meal Prep
A much more nutritious take on Taco Tuesdays. Plus, now you’re meal prepped for the whole week.
7. Zucchini Lasagna Roll Ups
Noodles, schmoodles. These long zucchini strips are loaded with cheese, ground turkey sausage (make sure there’s no added gluten or sugars) and plenty of fresh herbs.
8. Mexican Zucchini Lasagna
All the cheesy, saucy flavors but without all the carbs. It’s also gluten-free, packed with protein and only 280 calories. Win-win-win.
9. Thai Lettuce Wraps
This sister to the taco takes about the same amount of prep. Sauté and season the meat, then scoop it into crisp leaves of Boston lettuce. Top it off with simple homemade pickles and a touch of hot chiles, and you’ll be glad you gave the forks and knives a rest.
10. Greek Turkey Burgers with Tzatziki Sauce
Tip: Ditch the buns and sandwich these juicy patties between two avocado halves. You’ll never look back again, promise.
11. 30-Minute Thai Basil Turkey Bowls
Each element of this dish can be made ahead of time (think Sunday meal prep), and then tossed together in individual containers to bring with you on the go.
12. Buffalo Turkey Meatballs
Show of hands: Who loves buffalo wings? These morsels are even more addictive (and so much easier to eat).
13. Crock-Pot Turkey Bolognese Sauce with Zucchini Noodles
Guess what? You don’t even have to brown the turkey first. Just throw it into the slow-cooker, break it into big pieces and cover it with sauce.
14. Ground Turkey, Brussels and Arugula Bowl
Stir-frying is a no-brainer, right? This dish is essentially just that, and goes from the fridge to the dinner table in 20 minutes.
