Creamy Turkey Pasta with Kale & Mushroom



This is the entree your dairy free friends are going to love you for, this is our Creamy Turkey Pasta with Kale & Mushroom. Can you believe that this is a dairy free pasta recipe? Yes, we used coconut milk to add that creamy texture to the pasta, making it a perfect option for vegans. But Jasmin, there is ground Turkey how is it vegan?! Well, it's an extra step in this recipe that you can completely skip over! We wanted to ensure we made an entree that could accommodate multiple diets. It can also easily be made gluten free by opting for a GF pasta brand like Eat Banza. That way you will obtain your protein from the pasta and not have to worry from not having a balanced entree.


Speaking of a balanced entree, it's the perfect entree to serve since it is delicious, yes. But it's also a great recipe to meal prep and enjoy the rest of the week since it does include fiber from the kale and mushrooms, carbs from the pasta, healthy fats from the coconut milk, and protein from the ground turkey. You can't go wrong saving this recipe for a holiday party AND for yourself! Let us show you how to make it.
