Ingredients (6 servings)

  • 1 package (19.5 ounces) lean ground turkey (I used 99% lean)

  • 1/2 butternut squash, peeled and cubed (about 3 cups cubed, or 450g, after peeling)
  • 1 bag (9 ounces) broccoli slaw
  • 20 asparagus spears
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh thyme (can probably sub 2 tsp. dried thyme)
  • 1.5 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. black pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl, crumble or chop raw ground turkey into bite-sized pieces.

Add all ingredients and stir gently to mix.

Spray a large casserole dish with cooking spray or grease with coconut oil.

Empty mixture from bowl into casserole dish.

Bake for 60 minutes, or until top of bake is starting to brown and turkey is cooked through.
