Yummmmm I LOVE turkey dinners! There isn’t a lot better than a giant plate of juicy turkey smothered in gravy and paired with green beans and Low Carb Biscuits!
Another reason I love turkey dinners? All the meals that can be made with the leftover turkey meat!
I usually have a variety of dishes I plan to make ahead of time. When I’m cleaning up from dinner, I pack the leftover meat into portioned out packs, wrap them in tin foil and mark them with a marker. Then I freeze them all together in a freezer safe ziploc and pull them out as I need them.
Today I bring you one of my favourite dishes.. Low Carb Turkey a la King!
This flavourful dish is super easy to whip up for a quick weeknight meal. I like to serve mine with cauliflower rice, low carb biscuits or a 90 Second Keto Bread. For my family I usually make a side of rice.
I hope you love this delicious dish as much as I do!

You’ll need butter, mushrooms, onion, green pepper, celery, garlic, green beans, cooked turkey, heavy cream, chicken stock, salt and pepper.

How to make Low Carb Turkey a la King
Start by washing the veggies, including the mushrooms. Chop the onion, celery, green pepper and mushrooms.
Melt butter in a saucepan and once hot, add the onion, celery, green pepper and mushrooms. Mix in the pepper and salt and cook until the onion is translucent and the mushrooms have browned.
Chop the turkey, mince the garlic, trim the green beans and cut them into 1″ pieces. Mix all three into the mushrooms and stir, then pour in the warmed cream, and chicken stock.
Bring to a simmer and reduce for 10 minutes.
If you would like a thick sauce, xanthum gum can be used to thicken.
Serve hot over cauliflower rice, Low Carb Biscuits or 90 Second Keto Bread.
What pairs with Low Carb Turkey a la King?
Like mentioned above, these are the three sides I would pair with this Low Carb Turkey a la King:
- Cauliflower Rice – this is a great sidekick option

How to make Cauliflower Rice
Cauliflower rice is super easy to make!
Chop a cauliflower into small florets and discard the core. Either grate the cauliflower to form rice sized pieces or pulse for a couple of seconds in a food processor until the cauliflower is the size of rice grains.
Heat a skillet on medium heat with a tbsp of oil. Once hot, add the cauliflower rice with salt and pepper to taste. Stir, cover and cook for about 10 minutes until the cauliflower rice is perfectly soft, stirring every couple of minutes or so.
Serve hot drenched in Low Carb Turkey a la King.
