Mexican Turkey Cauliflower Rice Recipe


Add cauliflower florets to a food processor or chopper and pulse until the cauliflower resembles small bits (like rice).

Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high and add onions, bell pepper, garlic and jalapenos. Stir fry for a few minutes until the onion is translucent and the garlic is fragrant.

Stir in the turkey meat and cook while crumbling for an additional 6-8 minutes, until the turkey begins to brown.

Add “riced” cauliflower, corn, cumin, paprika, and salt to the pan. Stir fry the cauliflower for 4-5 minutes until it’s tender and a little crisp.

Garnish with cilantro, fresh lime, and avocado.
