We are big fans of noodle bowls in our home.  In fact, noodle bowl dinners are one of the most asked for meals by my kids, and I’m happy to oblige.  The kids love assembling their own bowls with all of their favourite toppings, and I’m happy to see them loading up with healthy ingredients!

This Coconut Lime Grilled Turkey Noodle Bowl is such a fun, delicious and healthy dinner.  And it’s the perfect way to dust off (or brush the snow off) the BBQ!  One of the things I like best about winter being officially behind us, is that meal times get a little easier.  These are they days that I like to grill meat and serve a tonne of vegetables for our dinners…they are lighter, brighter and a lot leaner.  And I like that.

Turkey is perfect for this noodle bowl.  Turkey is packed with protein, it’s lean, nutrient rich, and delicious.  And it takes on the flavour of the coconut lime marinade with perfection.  For recipes like this, I use turkey filets because I can find them in the grocery store already portioned into sizes that I like, making them easy to use in any dish that I want a light and lean meat in.  But you can use any cut of turkey that you prefer.

Just look at all of that healthy deliciousness!  The turkey is so flavourful…with ginger, coconut and lime.  It pairs so perfectly with all the fresh and colourful vegetables and the creamy peanut butter dressing.  You really need to try it!
