Turkey Bowls

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • cup diced onion
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger
  • 4 cups cauliflower rice

Teriyaki Sauce

  • cup coconut aminos, see note
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • ½ tsp minced garlic
  • ½ tsp fresh ginger


  • First, add all turkey bowl ingredients (except cauliflower rice) to a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Cook for 5 to 7 minutes covered, stirring occasionally. Break up meat with spatula.
  • In another skillet, add cauliflower rice and a drizzle of olive oil. Cook on low for 5 to 7 minutes or until heated through. Stir occasionally to prevent burning.
  • Once ground turkey is brown and crumbly, make teriyaki sauce.
  • Add all teriyaki sauce ingredients to a small bowl. Stir to combine.
  • Pour this sauce in turkey skillet. Bring to a light simmer.
  • Simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until sauce has thickened slightly and veggies and meat are coated in sauce.
  • Remove from heat. Remove cauliflower rice from heat.
  • Assemble bowls. Add a scoop of cauliflower rice and a scoop of the turkey mixture to bowl. Garnish with sesame seeds if desired.


  • Coconut aminos is the gluten free and soy free version of soy sauce.  Use gluten free soy sauce or regular soy sauce in its place if desired.
  • I used Big Tree Farms Teriyaki flavor coconut aminos, but regular will work great too!
  • Use fresh or frozen veggies.  If using frozen, let them thaw before using or quickly microwave them so they are room temperature.
  • I suggest buying pre-riced cauliflower to save time!
  • For a teriyaki sauce with a little more heat, check out this Sugar Free Stir Fry sauce.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days.
