Healthy Turkey Stroganoff {recipe}

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! I feel like I ate enough to feed a family of four…but that’s okay, I enjoyed every second of it, along with spending some much needed quality time with friends and family =)  Now that the feasts are over (well, at least for another three or four weeks), I’m working on getting back to making some of my “skinny” meals. One of my favorite meals is good ol’ traditional beef stroganoff; but of course it’s not the healthiest option, so I’ve given this comfort dish a “skinny” twist!  Surprisingly, I actually enjoy this much healthier version just as much as it’s guilty counterpart!  Here’s my recipe for Healthy Turkey Stroganoff

Make this recipe using your leftover Thanksgiving turkey too!

Healthy Turkey Stroganoff (recipe)
Serves 4


  • one pound of ground turkey (or leftover turkey meat, diced)
  • one package of sliced mushroom
  • one large onion, diced
  • one cup fat free Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp worcheshire sauce
  • 3/4 cup beef gravy
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 lb cooked egg noodles


  1. Cook egg noodles according to instructions, strain then set aside.
  2. Add olive oil to skillet and bring to medium heat, add mushrooms and onion and sautee for 3-4 minutes.  Add ground turkey and saute until turkey is cooked fully.  If using leftover turkey meat, simply add turkey meat after mushrooms and onions have cooked for 6-8 minutes.
  3. Once turkey meat, mushrooms & onions are cooked, add worcestershire sauce, Greek yogurt and gravy-continue to cook on medium heat for approx. 5 more minutes.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve turkey stroganoff on a beg of egg noodles-enjoy!

  1. I tried this tonight. Mine came out a lot more creamy than your picture– and I used only 2/3 a cup of greek yogurt. I think next time I’ll use even less because the sour taste really stood out, added a bit more WC sauce and gravy to balance it out. Your picture looks a lot more “dry” than what mine came out to be.
    PS Still good though! Added parmesan cheese!

    1. Hi Miranda! Yes, the amount of yogurt used is definitely a matter of preference, you can certainly play around with the proportions =) I like the idea of adding the Parmesan cheese too!
