Ingredients
  • 2 lbs ground turkey, 90/10
  • homemade taco seasoning, 1 whole batch
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons avocado oil
  • 2 small or medium heads of cauliflower
  • 1 lime, zest and juice
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • assorted taco toppings: shredded lettuce, tomatoes, minced onion, sliced black olives, black beans, homemade guacamole, diced avocado, avocado salsa, chopped cilantro, etc.
Instructions
for the Turkey
  1. Heat 1 Tablespoon avocado oil in a cast iron skillet.
  2. Crumble the ground turkey into the skillet and cook over medium heat until browned and cooked through.
  3. Add one full recipe of homemade taco seasoning along with the water. Heat and stir until the turkey is evenly coated and most of the water has evaporated.
for the Cauliflower Rice
  1. Remove and discard the leaves and core from the cauliflower.
  2. Break it into florets and add to the bowl of your food processor.
  3. Pulse until the cauliflower pieces becomes similar to rice, in size. You will probably need to do this in two or three batches.
  4. To cook cauliflower rice, I add 1 Tablespoons of avocado oil to my cast iron skillet and heat it over medium-high heat.
  5. When the oil is hot, I add the riced cauliflower. It will cook in minutes. Probably five minutes from start to finish. You want it hot all the way through, but not mushy. It should have the texture of firm, cooked rice. A lot of the moisture will cook out and the amount of cauliflower in your skillet will have shrunk.
  6. After it's cooked, I like to add the zest and juice of one lime, along with salt and pepper, to taste.
To assemble the Turkey Taco Bowls
  1. Add one or two scoops of Cauliflower Rice to the bottom of a bowl.
  2. Spoon some prepared turkey taco filling over the rice.
  3. Top with your favorite taco toppings and add-ons.
