Think Hamburger Helper without the hamburger 🙂 For the stroganoff flavoring and the noodles, I just used a box of Hamburger Helper Beef Stroganoff. But then I substituted turkey and added a few twists. This one is really super good !
395 calories per serving
1 lb. lean ground turkey
½ t pepper
½ t salt
1 t gravy master
1 t dehydrated onion flakes
3 ½ c water
1 package beef stroganoff sauce mix
3 c uncooked medium egg noodles
½ c sour cream
½ c canned peas
Parsley for garnish
Cook turkey in a hot skillet on medium high heat until it is no longer pink. Toward the end add 1 t of Gravy Master or Kitchen Bouquet so that the meat gets browner and more resembles ground beef. Mix in salt and pepper, onion flakes, water, sauce mix and noodles and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat to medium low, cover and cook 8 minutes or until noodles are tender. Half way through, stir in the peas. Stir in sour cream and heat through on low heat. Garnish with parsley just before serving.
It is sooooo worth finding these noodles and making this dish. It is authentic, satisfying , soooo low cal considering the big portion you get and it is truly delicious.

2 8 oz. packages of House Tofu Shiratake Noodles (available in most food markets and definitely in Asian markets. You’ll find them with the tofu products – SO LOW cal and so noodly!)
4 T olive oil
4 cloves garlic, crushed
4 T green onions, sliced
1 c celery, sliced thinly
2 c carrots, shredded (buy them pre-shredded to save time)
3 T teriyaki sauce
3 T Kraft Asian Sesame Dressing
Salt and pepper to taste
Prepare noodles according to package instructions (rinse, microwave 1 minute, dry on a paper towel). Cut the noodles into 3 or 4 inch lengths. Using a pair of kitchen scissors makes this task easy. Heat oil in a non stick pan. On medium high, cook garlic, onions, celery and carrots. Cook 5 -7 minutes, until veggies are soft. Stir in noodles and press into a flat layer. Cook 3 minutes on high heat. Add the teriyaki and dressing and mix well. Cook 3-4 minutes longer on medium high heat.
