Yesterday I went to the optometrist for a follow up appointment. I have an inflammation on my right eye right, but it’s getting better. I have to use the medications (drops) until Monday to make sure the inflammation is gone and won’t come back soon.

MY LATEST RECIPES

I have this inflammation every year for over 3 years now. It normally flares up every 6 months but it last only few days and to be honest I’m already used to it. I mean of course it’s annoying and it messes up my day-to-day activities, but I learned how to deal with this well. In another post I’ll talk more about it and why I have it. But now let’s jump to the recipe because “Oh boy it’s worth it”!!

This Ground Turkey Cauliflower Rice Veggie Bowls is a complete meal with lots of good protein and veggies. In addition to being a low-carb meal with cauliflower “rice”, this recipe is also great as a leftover that’s why it’s a great option to bring to work.

It stays good in the fridge for about 4 days.

  • Bring on the Veggies –This recipe is also packed with some serious and delicious veggies such as bell pepper, red onions and green beans. I sautéed all the veggies in a cast iron skillet with a good extra-virgin olive oil, coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper. Mm… so good!
  • Extra-lean protein – This Ground Turkey Cauliflower Rice Veggie Bowls is loaded with lean protein. I used 90% lean ground turkey, but if you prefer ground beef with a little more fat, you can certainly use a different type of meat.
  • Low-carb “rice” – Who doesn’t like some good fluffy rice, right? But what we don’t like as much is all the carbs in there. I get it and that’s why I bring to you this D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S cauliflower “rice”. I made it by processing all the cauliflower florets in a food processor and sauté it with sesame oil (adding more flavour), garlic and soy sauce. Absolutely yummy! But just be aware that soy sauce it’s not gluten-free. You can use coconut amino instead.

So, ready to jump to the recipe box and make this delicious Ground Turkey Cauliflower Rice Veggie Bowls?

Enjoy!

Ingredients:

For the Ground Turkey

  • 1 lb extra-lean ground turkey
  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • A pinch of crushed crushed red pepper
  • ¼ coriander
  • 4 cups cabbage, kale, brussels sprouts (all chopped)
  • ½ cup vegetable broth
  • ¼ cup tomato sauce (I use this sauce here)
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

For the Cauliflower Rice

  • 1 small cauliflower head, cut into florets
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil (you can use olive oil if you don’t have sesame oil)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce

For the Sauté Veggies

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cups green beans, ends trimmed
  • 1 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1 big red bell pepper, chopped
  • Salt and black pepper

Directions:

For the Ground Turkey

  1. In a cast iron skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat.
  2. Add onions and sauté for 3-5 minutes or until the onions are tender.
  3. Add ground turkey and all the spices. Using a wood spoon break up the turkey. Cook for about 7 minutes and don’t forget to stir occasionally.
  4. Add cabbage, kale, brussels sprouts, vegetable broth and mix well to combine. Cook for about 4 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  5. Pour tomato sauce and season with salt and black pepper. Cook for more 3 minutes or until the veggies are cooked through. Set aside.

For the Cauliflower Rice

  1. Pulse the cauliflower florets in a food processor for about 25-30 seconds until it’s a rice-like consistency.
  2. In the same large skillet you used to cook the ground turkey, add 2 tablespoon of sesame oil over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds.
  3. Add the cauliflower rice and soy sauce. Mix everything well to combine. Be careful to not overcook the cauliflower otherwise it will become soggy. Set aside.

For the Sauté Veggies

  1. In the same large skillet you used to cook the ground turkey and the cauliflower rice, add 2 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add all the veggies, salt and black pepper and stir well.
  2. Cook until the veggies are tender. Be careful to not overcook them.

MEAL PREPPING:

Place an even amount of ground turkey, cauliflower rice and veggies into 4 different glass containers. Cover with the lid and place in the fridge for up 4 days. Heat in the microwave for about 1.5 or 2 minutes. The time will depend on the power of your microwave.
