So I had nothing to make for dinner, and then this little humdinger happened. Good grief this was tasty! I had no complaints at the dinner table. Not one. Don’t you just love it when that happens? This clean eating garden vegetable turkey skillet recipe was a total hit!
The truth is, I was totally out of inspiration. I’ve been working on some big projects lately and because of that, the idea of coming up with something new for dinner was a bit overwhelming on this particular evening. So I reached in the fridge, grabbed some ground turkey and some veggies I thought would go well with it and just did a “scramble” of sorts.
Man it was good! Everything came together nicely and created somewhat of a “comfort food” type of dish. My mom ate hers with a bit of sour cream. I ate mine with some extra avocado and Mini Chef was happy to just dig in!
The nice part about this is that it comes together so quickly. This is truly a great dish for a busy weeknight when you just need to get dinner on the table. And it’s totally versatile too. You can add just about any veggies you have on hand and it will turn out well. You’ll see!
