Zucchini Noodles with Ground Turkey and Carrot-Tomato Sauce
Zucchini noodles are a great alternative to wheat pasta. Making the 'zoodles' doesn’t require a spiralizer—although that can make the noodles longer and a lot more fun to eat. You can use a julienne peeler or even a knife to cut the zucchini into spaghetti-like strands.
12-18 Months Starter Meals
Dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free.
Makes 8 servings.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 pound ground turkey
- ½ onion, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 (14-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
- 1 carrot, peeled and grated
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- 1 zucchini, cut into ¼-inch-thick noodles
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1. In a large sauté pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat until it shimmers. Add the ground turkey and onion. Cook, crumbling the turkey with a spoon, until brown, about 6 minutes.
2. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
3. Add the tomatoes, carrot, and salt. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer for 5 minutes.
4. Stir in the zucchini noodles. Cook for 5 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and stir in the basil. Store unoffered portions in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
Tip: Other veggies also make great 'noodles'. Try half a winter squash or jicama, 1 sweet potato, or 3 carrots.

First we tried the recipe for Chop-Chop Salad. It was easy to prepare and had a nice variety of tastes and textures. Then we tried the recipe for Black Beans with Lime and Cilantro. As the author mentioned in another recipe's tip, we took the option of leaving out the cilantro, as we do not care for it as an ingredient. The black beans were very tasty and colorful with carrots, bell pepper, lime zest and lime juice. We also make Mini Green Bean Fries and we tripled the recipe. These were fun and easy to prepare and are a nice healthy change from fries made with potatoes. The green bean fries were crispy and tasty. I like that this cookbook includes recipes that range from baby's first pureed foods to toddler meals, and then to meals for the whole family. You will certainly get at least several years of use from the recipes here. This book would make a great gift for a baby shower. I think any family will enjoy using this multi-stage cookbook . I received a free copy of this cookbook from the publisher.
Also, a large chunk of the book is "recipes" for individual-food purees, each of which is identical (steam, puree, freeze).
.Each recipe is labeled Vegan, Vegetarian or Gluten Free.
.Each recipe has suggestions of what spices will pair well with the dish.
.The recipe tells you the best way to prepare (peel, cut, slice) each food.
.Tells you how long each food can be stored for.
.List of the Dirty Dozen (the dirtiest foods that should ALWAYS be purchased organically).
.List of the Clean Fifteen (the cleanest foods that are okay to purchase non-organically).
.Cover has a satin/matte coating that protects the book and allows you to wipe up spills.
.Interior pages are uncoated (100# text) paper.
.Starts out with simple single ingredient purees.
.Progresses to more complex family dinners.
.Each recipe includes a tip that helps to make the process easier.
.Book includes a sample Meal Guide Calendar to help you plan what to feed your baby for the first few months.
.Gives you tips on how to get your baby to be a "good eater".
.Colorful pages and photos that give motivation to try out new and exciting foods.
.Includes a good variety of fish, poultry and meat dishes as well as many vegetarian and vegan and gluten-free dishes.
.Book is very thick and does not stay open on it's own. It would be amazing if it came in a spiral bound version as well.
This book is perfect for beginners as well as for people who already know their way around the kitchen. Highly recommend.
