Zucchini & Turkey Coconut Milk Alfredo Bake
 
Ingredients
Filling:
  • 5 zucchini, sliced into ⅙" medallions
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan
Alfredo Sauce:
  • 1 can coconut milk (lite)
  • 1 tbsp flour (or corn starch, or anything to help thicken a little)
  • 1.5 cups finely shredded mozzarella
  • 2 tsp California Garlic Powder
  • Salt & Pepper to taste (I used roughly 1 tsp)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Next toss your zucchini slices in 1 tbsp olive oil and spread out onto parchment paper (as well as you can). Sprinkle with some salt and place in oven for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove zucchini from oven and pat with paper towel (this will help remove moisture before baking). Let zucchini slices sit on paper towels until ready to use.
  4. In a medium pan over medium heat brown you ground turkey. Strain fat from ground turkey and set aside.
  5. In same pan if more fat is needed, add a little more olive oil and then place onions in pan over medium heat and cook until onions are translucent (about 7 minutes). Remove from pan mix into turkey and set aside.
  6. In same pan over medium heat add your coconut milk. Bring to a boil and then turn down to a simmer. Quickly whisk in flour or cornstarch.
  7. Next whisk in california garlic powder. Let simmer for about a minute or so.
  8. Remove from heat and whisk in mozzarella. Cheese will melt and then salt & pepper sauce to taste.
  9. In an 8x8 baking dish (roughly) lightly coat pan with alfredo sauce (just enough to coat bottom of pan)
  10. Sprinkle ⅓ of zucchini and top with ½ of ground turkey & onion. Pour on top ⅓ of alfredo sauce that is left.
  11. Repeat steps and layer w/ ⅓ of zucchini, the rest of ground turkey/onion and ⅓ of sauce.
  12. Place last layer of zucchini medallions and then rest of alfredo sauce. Sprinkle with the parmesan and then cover with foil.
  13. Place in oven for 30 minutes. Remove foil and let continue to bake for another 20 minutes.
  14. Remove from oven and serve warm.
