Cauliflower Rice Turkey Taco Bowl

Some nights for dinner, I am out of yellow containers for the day (carbs).  So, we improvise and come up with dinners like this one.  Note:  It's actually better to eat your carb containers earlier in the day if you are trying to lose weight/inches.  But, my family doesn't always appreciate that plan.  The good thing is cauliflower can easily disguise itself as rice, which is nice, ha, that rhymes! Here's what we did for dinner for the whole fam.  It kept me on my 21 Day Fix meal plan and happily fed the rest of my crew, win-win! 

Ingredients: (makes 4 servings)

1 head of cauliflower

1 lime

Olive oil for sautéing

Cilantro, optional

1 lb. ground turkey

Spices to brown the turkey: pepper, onion powder, garlic cloves, chili powder, whatever you prefer

Baby Spinach

2 tomatoes

Cheddar cheese, optional

Salsa, optional

Avocado would also be great in place of cheese, but I was craving cheese!


Grate the cauliflower or cut into florets and pulse 6-8 times in a food processor to "rice" it to the texture you prefer.

Place about a tsp. of olive oil in a skillet, add cauliflower and juice from 1 lime and sautee, you can also add cilantro for more flavor.

Brown the turkey.  I added 3 cloves of garlic in a little olive oil first, then added the turkey along with the above spices.

That's it!  Now just combine into individual taco "bowls" or salads.  For individual servings for 21 Day Fix, measure 1 red container of meat, 1 green container of tomatoes and cauli rice combined, 1/2 green container of spinach, 1 blue container of cheese. Quick and easy!

21 Day Fix counts: 1 Red, 1 1/2 green, 1 blue, 1/2 tsp
