Paleo Ground Turkey ‘Garbage’ Stir Fry

paleo ground turkey recipe, clean eating turkey recipeThis dinner is the epitome of “throwing it together.”

I have made it many times, in many different ways. It simply requires looking in your fridge, realizing you have nothing to make for dinner, and throwing a bunch of things into a pot. I’m grateful that this form of cooking always seems to work out for me. In fact, this may be my favorite type of dinner to make, as it requires very little prep, virtually no planning, and it has this “Top Chef quick fire challenge” feeling to it. I always feel very proud of myself for making it work. Go me.

I usually have some frozen ground turkey meat in the freezer — and my fresh herb garden always helps — but this would work with any ground protein or dry herbs. Depending on my mood, I will sometimes switch out the sriracha for some coconut aminos if I’m wanting something less spicy. You can mix up the veggies based on what you have available, as well. Enjoy!
