Paleo Turkey Goulash

I have a pile of my "old" (Pre-Paleo) recipes that I loved so I keep them and try to turn them into Paleo recipes. This is one of those recipes. Rather than using non-stick cooking spray and pasta, I subbed in butter and mushrooms for this recipe. It's really pretty quick to make and the seasonings are items I usually have on hand all the time. I went ahead and left the ground turkey as ground turkey, because it's so plain it really allows you to taste the vegetables.

      1. how much garlic do you use? and When do you put the tomatoes in??

      2. Hi Chelsea, I tried this recipe and it turned out great. Use 2 cloves of minced garlic and put in the tomatoes right before the 30 minute simmer.
