“Lighter with the turkey than with beef, and we like the flavor better too. Serve over brown rice.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add 1 cup water and 1/2 cup of brown rice to a pot. Bring to a boil, uncovered, on medium high heat. At boiling, turn down to low, cover and simmer for 50 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, brown the turkey in a non stick skillet.
  3. On another burner, in a heavy stew pot over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon of the water. Add the diced onions to the water, and heat until onions are soft and brown. When liquid runs dry, add a second tablespoon of water, and scrape the brown parts from the bottom of the pan to add flavor to the sauce; repeat with the third tablespoon of water. If more liquid is needed to soften and brown the onions, use more water, but don't make it soupy. You just want to soften and brown the onions.
  4. When onions are soft, add the browned turkey and stir.
  5. Add the sage, thyme, and pepper to the onions and browned turkey, and stir again. Add the sliced mushrooms and 1/2 cup water, lower the heat, cover, then stir occasionally.
  6. Simmer for 20 minutes or until the mushrooms have softened and the sauce is still there. If too much of it evaporates, add a little water and reduce the heat. Keep it covered if it is reducing too fast.
  7. Serve over the brown rice: 1/2 cup of cooked rice per serving, topped with stroganoff.
  8. To make a more savory version: add 2 cups of Imagine Portabello mushroom soup at the same time you add the 1/2 cup chicken broth.
