Curry(ish) Turkey & Veggie Bowls

I used my trusty meal-development formula to come up with this flavorful dish! I can already tell this will be in meal prep rotation for the foreseeable future ;) 

INGREDIENTS(serves 4):

  • 1 package (~1lb) of 99% lean ground turkey (or meat of choice)
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 2 tsp each of: cumin, turmeric and smoked paprika
  • cayenne pepper to spice tolerance (I only used about 1 tsp) 
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced 
  • 1 handful of fresh basil, chopped 
  • 1 cup of tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup of red onion, diced
  • 1 cup of cucumber, diced 
  • a few handful of salad greens 
  • 2 cups of white rice, cooked 
  • 4 tbsp eggplant hummus 
  • 1-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (adjust as necessary)
  • a few shakes of coconut aminos 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Begin cooking rice per package instructions, set aside when cooked 
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add ground turkey + minced garlic
  • While rice and turkey are cooking, prepare the sauce by combining desired quantities of spices with olive oil, juice of 1 lemon and coconut aminos
  • Set aside about 1 tbsp of the sauce for topping and pour the rest on top of the turkey while it cooks 
  • Stir sauce into the turkey and continue to cook until fully browned 
  • In a separate container chop the tomatoes, cucumber, onions and basil and toss with the juice from the remaining lemon 
  • Once the rice and turkey are finished cooking, grab 4 large salad bowls and fill with 1 handful of salad greens each (I used spinach)
  • Top with 1/2 cup rice, a quarter of the tomato/cuc/basil/lemon/onion mix and 4 oz of turkey
  • Add a dollop of eggplant hummus and a drizzle of remaining sauce for extra kick. Enjoy!

 

NUTRITION - This recipe is super customizable! 

  • for low-carb: swap cauli rice for regular rice or do a combo of both
  • for high-fat: use a fattier meat, top with additional olive oil or get crazy and add some avocado to the top!
  • for lower-fat: adjust the amount of olive oil in the sauce to suit your needs
