Quick & Easy Ground Turkey & Vegetable Recipe

Quick and easy way to cook ground turkey and vegetables. As a standalone recipe, this is low carb friendly and potentially keto & paleo friendly too. In any case, the recipe is super simple by design, as it allows for flexibility in serving, add it to any other side dish, incorporate it into sauces. If you double the quantity, it can serve as a good prepared meal for the next couple of days.

The best part about the recipe is that you can change every ingredient. Sub out ground turkey for beef, bison or chicken. Sub out any of the vegetables for any other vegetables of your choice: tomatoes, olives, fennel, celery, carrots.
