Mediterranean Turkey Stir Fry

Print This


Dinner in a bowl? Lunch on the go? Yes! This uniquely flavored dished is always a hit. I serve it atop rice and sprinkled with feta. Then I pack up leftovers for lunches. Often I double the recipe and freeze half.


  • 2 T olive oil
  • Coarsely grated zucchini (from about 2 to 3 small zucchinis or one medium zucchini)
  • 1/2 coarsely grated onion (medium or large) or 3 green onions, thinly sliced, with onion greens included
  • 2 T Mint (or spearmint)
  • 2 T Cilantro
  • 2 t ground Cumin
  • 1 t Salt
  • 1/2 t Garlic Flakes
  • 1/2 t Black Pepper
  • 1/2 t Cayenne
  • 1 pound ground Turkey


  • Saute veggies with all seasonings.
  • Once the veggies have cooked down add meat.
  • Finish cooking and serve hot.
  • Tip = Feta cheese is a delicious topping!


The above recipe is a variation of a SimplyRecipes recipe which was adapted from Jerusalem: A Cookbook.  Desiring a “bowling” recipe, I took a stir fry approach rather than burgers and eliminated the sour cream sauce.
