When it comes to the usual protein sources, it’s hard to top ground turkey. It’s one of the most affordable and most versatile options out there. And because of its mild flavor, this lean protein works with just about any flavor profile, whether it’s taco seasoning, Moroccan spices, or classic Italian herbs. But if you find yourself making the same old boring patties, it’s time for an upgrade.

That won’t mean slaving away in the kitchen, or spending major dough on groceries, though. Each of the recipes below calls for one pound of ground turkey plus a few key ingredients (many of which you might already have on hand). Pro tip: When choosing your protein, we recommend opting for 100 percent white meat, which is lower in fat and calories. While a serving of regular ground turkey contains about three grams of saturated fat, ground turkey breast contains only about half a gram per serving. Here are 11 ground turkey recipes to shake up your healthy rotation.

11 Healthy Ground Turkey Recipes You’ll Crave

1. Healthy Turkey Burgers
Makes 4 servings
Turkey burgers too often turn in to flavorless hockey pucks, but a healthy dose of minced garlic and freshly chopped parsley and rosemary keep these patties full of flavor and moisture. Serve wrapped in lettuce leaves to cut down on carbs and top with a thick slice of avocado and fresh tomato. This recipe makes four burgers, but cooked patties can easily be frozen to later use (defrost in the fridge before reheating on the grill or stovetop).

2. 20-Minute Turkey Tacos with Apple Salsa
Makes 4 servings
News flash: Salsa does not have to be made from tomatoes! Crisp apples make a refreshing chunky salsa to top the turkey taco mixture flavored with cumin, garlic and onion. If you’re not keen on eating tacos for days, the leftovers are easy to mix and match. Serve leftover filling and salsa over spinach or mixed greens for lunch, enjoy the leftover salsa with plain Greek yogurt for a sweet-and-savory snack, or cook the leftover turkey mixture with scrambled eggs for a protein-packed breakfast.

3. Ground Turkey and Sweet Potato Stuffed Peppers
Makes 4 servings
When cooked up with diced sweet potatoes and onions, ground turkey makes the perfect protein-rich filling for sweet bell peppers. Fully stuffed, the stuffed peppers keep well in the fridge or freezer. Want a meal that’s a bit easier to eat on-the-go? Chop the stuffed peppers into more of a hash, and you’ll get the same great flavors without the need to sit down with a proper knife and fork. Recipe and photo: Olivia / Primavera Kitchen

4. Turkey Meatball Soup
Makes 4 servings
Meatballs don’t always have to be served atop spaghetti! Yes, this soup still nestles the turkey meatballs in a bath of tomato sauce, but the “broth” is anything but traditional marinara. While the meatballs get a burst of flavor from cilantro, parsley, and cumin, onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin, and hot sauce add depth to the sauce. Top with a healthy dose of cilantro and squeeze of lime for a splash of freshness before serving. Freeze leftovers in individual servings for easy reheating.

5. Teriyaki Turkey Rice Bowl
Makes 4-6 servings
This might be the simplest way to make a week’s worth of dinners with one pound of ground meat. Quickly cook the turkey on the stovetop with chopped broccoli, grated carrots, and a mix of flavorings including garlic, ginger and soy sauce. The recipe suggests serving the mixture over rice, but don’t be afraid to get creative! The mix would go just as well as a filling for lettuce cups, on top of steamed vegetables or mixed with cooked rice noodles. Recipe and photo: Kristin / Yellow Bliss Road

6. Healthy Turkey Chili
Makes 6 servings
Swapping in ground turkey for beef is the easiest way to lighten up this classic comfort food dish. A one-cup serving of this turkey and white bean chili comes in at just 320 calories and an impressive 33 grams of protein and 13 grams of fiber. Pro tip: Freeze leftovers in individual servings for easy on-the-go lunches or a quick dinner. Recipe and photo: Perry Santanachote / Life by Daily Burn

7. Baked Asian Chicken Meatball Lettuce Wraps
Makes 24 meatballs, or about 6 servings
Most chicken (or turkey) meatballs are dry and flavorless, but these delicious bites certainly don’t face that fate! Adding a mixture of breadcrumbs and milk to the meatballs helps keep them moist even when reheated. Serve in lettuce wraps or with steamed broccoli or snow peas and drizzle with the extra sauce for tons of flavor. Note: The recipe calls for 1 ½ pounds of ground poultry, but you can easily adapt the recipe to use a standard 1 pound container by slightly reducing the amount of breadcrumbs and milk you add to the meatball mixture.

8. Zucchini Noodles and Meatballs
Makes 4-6 servings
Forget spaghetti noodles — zucchini noodles accompany these turkey meatballs just as well with a fraction of calories, fat and carbohydrates.

9. Quick and Easy Taco Salad
Makes 4 servings
Because ground turkey has such a mild flavor, it’s easy to liven up with whatever flavors you like. Here, our favorite bird gets kicked up a notch with cilantro, scallions and taco seasoning. Crunchy romaine lettuce serves as the base of this flavor-filled salad that gets topped with your favorite salsa, and if you want a little more indulgence, some low-fat cheese and a few crispy baked tortilla chips. Instead of dressing, squeeze a lime wedge over the top before digging in. Recipe and photo: Perry Santanachote / Life by Daily Burn

Put down the Manwich! This recipe is proof that fresh, wholesome ingredients can lend light-years more flavor than anything out of a can. Think of this easy 30-minute recipe as a cross between Sloppy Joes and buffalo wings. The (not so) secret ingredient in this flavorful ground turkey filling is buffalo wing sauce, along with onion, carrot and celery. Instead of the traditional Ranch dressing for dipping, each sandwich is topped with a healthier homemade Greek yogurt and blue cheese ranch sauce. Cut down on carbs by opting to serve the mix in lettuce wraps or atop roasted veggies. Recipe and photo: Spoonful of Flavor

The delicious, sweet teriyaki sauce and the (kind of) hidden veggies in this Teriyaki Turkey Rice Bowl makes this one of those healthy ground turkey recipes that your whole family will love!

We love Asian inspired recipes, and have quite a few here on the site! Some of our favorites are included in our monthly dinner rotation, like Egg Fried Rice and Crockpot Orange Chicken.

I love Asian inspired dishes, and Teriyaki is a family favorite. The sweet and savory richness of the sauce really compliments the flavors of the ground turkey. Plus it’s loaded with veggies, which means my kids are eating them! You can pair this with steamed rice or noodles, or even wrap it up in a Lettuce Wrap.

GROUND TURKEY TERIYAKI RICE BOWLS

Ground turkey recipes are always a winner in our house, like Turkey, Kale and Rice Soup, Turkey Taco Stuffed Shells and Spicy Turkey Meatloaf. These Teriyaki Turkey Rice Bowls almost always top the list of favorites.

My kids are not fans of vegetables. Well, quite frankly that is an understatement. They hate them. So I have had to get clever with how I add veggies to our meals.

What we love most about ground turkey in recipes

  • Ground turkey is a healthy alternative to ground beef, and an easy substitution in tons of recipes like chili and spaghetti sauce.
  • We include lots of veggies and dice them up small so it’s very kid friendly and a great way to get kids to actually enjoy eating their vegetables.
  • You can easily customize this recipe to include your favorite veggies or add a different base like rice or noodles.

How to cook ground turkey

Ground turkey is a light, bright pink color when it’s raw or uncooked. As it cooks the color will change from pink to a light brown color. Seasoning is important, since it has a very mild flavor that takes on whatever flavors you add. It’s delicious with just a little garlic, onion and salt added but you can also add it to chili, spaghetti, tacos and more by changing the seasoning.

HOW TO MAKE TERIYAKI TURKEY RICE BOWLS

  1. After cooking the ground turkey with some onions and garlic, I grated a few carrots and chopped several stalks of broccoli very fine, and tossed them in with the meat. This gave the illusion that there weren’t very many vegetables in there, but they couldn’t avoid what they could see! *Note – if you are serving this as a rice bowl, you’ll want to start cooking the rice before you start cooking the meat.
  2. The teriyaki sauce is made from scratch and is incredibly easy. Some readers have commented on the amount of sugar in the sauce, and you can see in the recipe notes that you can reduce the amount of sugar to your liking. Teriyaki sauce is typically sweet on it’s own, but you can adjust the levels based on your needs. It will still taste great!
  3. The teriyaki sauce is combined with the meat and veggies and simmered for a few minutes to let the flavors blend and get all happy. Then scoop it on top of white or brown rice, noodles, into lettuce cups or even flour tortillas for some Asian-Mexican fusion!

Once the sauce is added, the veggies blend in nicely in these Teriyaki Turkey Rice Bowls. I’m happy. My kids are happy. It’s a win-win! My kids loved this dish, asking for seconds and if they could take it for lunch the next day in their thermoses. I’d call that a success.

They also love to eat their rice bowl with chopsticks. If you don’t have any, you can find them here, or try these adorable training chopsticks for kids.

CAN I USE GROUND BEEF INSTEAD OF TURKEY?

Yes, you absolutely can! Ground turkey recipes can easily swap ground beef, pork or chicken. You will want to make sure to drain it really well since ground beef lets out a lot of liquid, but it will work just as well as the ground turkey.

WHAT OTHER VEGETABLES CAN I USE FOR A RICE BOWL?

Feel free to customize this recipe to fit your own personal tastes. Use cut up veggies and sauté or steam them before adding them to the turkey and sauce.

Some other veggie options:

  • Bell peppers
  • Snow peas
  • Water chestnuts
  • Bok choy
  • Bean sprouts
  • Zucchini
  • Corn
  • Cauliflower
  • Water chestnuts

CUSTOMIZE YOUR GROUND TURKEY TERIYAKI RICE BOWLS

I have received lots of comments over the years on how much people love this recipe, but also how they change it up and make it their own for something truly unique and delicious.

  • Ground turkey recipes are the tastiest when the meat is seasoned properly. Add some heat to this dish with some Sriracha or red pepper flakes.
  • Not fans of rice? Use noodles instead. You can even use spaghetti noodles to mimic a low mein and toss in some cabbage to saute it with.
  • Feel free to cut the amount of sugar in this recipe. It won’t affect the flavor but it will swing more towards the savory side.

how to store teriyaki ground turkey

  • Refrigerating leftovers: This dish will keep for 3-4 days in the fridge if properly stored in an airtight container. Reheat in the microwave or on the stove.
  • To freeze, allow to cool completely, then pour into a freezer bag or airtight container. Freeze for up to 6 months. Thaw in the fridge and reheat as described above. Freeze rice or noodles separately from the meat.

how long does raw ground turkey last?

When you purchase ground turkey at the store, it has a “sell-by” date. Your meat will likely last 1-2 days past this date if properly stored in it’s original packaging in your refrigerator. To further extend the shelf like of your ground turkey, freeze it within 1 day past the sell by date. To maximize freshness, wrap the packaged turkey in foil and place in a freezer bag. Follow these steps to ensure you always have fresh meat on hand for all of your favorite ground turkey recipes!

I seriously never get tired of super easy stir fry dinners! I mean, what’s not to love? Only a few ingredients, you can work in a TON of vegetables, and they’re super fast! Using ground meat makes them even easier, because there’s no cutting or slicing raw meat (not a fan of this task). This Ground Turkey Stir Fry is especially great because it’s so versatile. Use whatever vegetables you have on hand, make it spicy or mild, serve it with rice, noodles, or with shredded cabbage for a low carb option. Scroll down for more deets on those options!

Ground Turkey Stir Fry

This Ground Turkey Stir Fry is another meal inspired by those “macro-friendly” meal delivery services that deliver individual, ready-to-reheat meals to your door. While those services are super convenient, they’re also super expensive and I know I can make similar meals at home for a fraction of the price. 🙂 You can easily adjust the macros in this meal by increasing, decreasing, or eliminating any of these elements: turkey, vegetables, rice, or nuts. Unfortunately, I don’t have the specific macro nutrient information for this meal, and you can read why in my FAQs.

Customize your Ground Turkey Stir Fry

  • Reduce the recipe cost by increasing the vegetables and decreasing the amount of ground turkey
  • Use ground beef, pork, chicken, or crumbled tofu or tempeh in place of the ground turkey
  • Other vegetable options: mushrooms, broccoli, carrots, bean sprouts, snap peas, green beans, water chestnuts
  • Top with cashews or sesame seeds in place of the peanuts
  • Make it spicy by stirring a tablespoon (or TWO 🔥) of sriracha or chili garlic sauce into the stir fry sauce
  • Add fresh some fresh grated ginger to the stir fry sauce for extra zing
  • Add cooked noodles to the stir fry at the end instead of serving over rice
  • Add a bag of coleslaw mix to the stir fry to bulk it up without adding carbs, similar to my Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry, instead of serving with rice or noodles.

How to Store Ground Turkey Stir Fry

This recipe works great for meal prep, but I suggest only storing in the refrigerator rather than the freezer. Freezing will cause the vegetables to soften further and seep more water. This dish will stay good in the refrigerator for about four days.

Stir Fry Sauce

Stir Fry

For Serving

  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts ($0.12)
  • 2.5 cups cooked brown rice ($0.60)
  • Make the stir fry sauce by stirring together the soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, brown sugar, red pepper, and water until the sugar is dissolved. Set the sauce aside.
  • Dice the bell peppers and slice the green onions.
  • Heat the cooking oil in a very large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the ground turkey and minced garlic. Stir and cook until the turkey is cooked through and no water is left pooling on the bottom of the skillet (8-10 minutes).
  • Once the turkey is cooked and the moisture has evaporated, add the bell pepper and green onions to the skillet. Stir and cook for about 2 minutes more, then add the spinach and continue to cook just until it is about half wilted (1-2 minutes).
  • Pour the stir fry sauce into the skillet. Continue to stir and cook the turkey and vegetables until everything is coated in sauce and the spinach is fully wilted (about 2 minutes more).
  • Serve about 1 cup of the stir fry mixture with 1/2 cup rice and a sprinkle of chopped peanuts over top.

*I’m not sure why ground turkey often comes in 19oz. packages instead of an even pound, but if you can only find a one pound package you’ll be fine. No need to adjust anything, but you’ll probably only get 4 servings instead of 5.

How to Make Ground Turkey Stir Fry – Step by Step Photos

First, make the stir fry sauce so it’s ready to go. Stir together 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1/2 Tbsp toasted sesame oil, 1/2 Tbsp brown sugar, a pinch of red pepper flakes, and 1 Tbsp water. Stir until the brown sugar is dissolved. BTW, I’ve really grown to love the Whole Food’s 365 brand Shoyu soy sauce. It’s very affordable and has great *flavor*, rather than just being salty.

Next prepare the vegetables. Dice two bell peppers (I used red and yellow for more color), and slice four green onions. I am also using about 2 oz. fresh spinach (2 large handfuls or about 1/4 of an 8oz. bag). No preparation needed for the spinach.

Add 2 Tbsp of your favorite cooking oil to a large skillet and heat over medium. Once hot, add 19oz. ground turkey and 2 minced cloves of garlic. Stir and cook until the turkey is cooked through and all of the moisture has evaporated out of the skillet. Soupy stir fry is not good. 🙂

Add the diced bell peppers and green onions to the skillet. Continue to stir and cook just until they begin to soften (about 2 minutes). Don’t let them cook too much because they will continue to cook over the next few minutes as more ingredients are added. Add the spinach to the skillet and cook for 1-2 minutes more, or until the spinach is about half wilted, like in the photo.

Finally, pour in the stir fry sauce. If your brown sugar wasn’t completely dissolved and some remains on the bottom of the bowl, make sure to scrape that into the skillet. Stir and cook everything for 1-2 minutes more, or until everything is coated in sauce and heated though.

And that’s it! It’s literally that easy.

Serve about 1 cup of the ground turkey stir fry with 1/2 cup cooked rice and some chopped peanuts over top. Enjoy!
