1 15-ounce can black or pinto beans

1 lb extra lean ground turkey

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp chili powder

~1/8 - 1/4 tsp sea salt (to taste)


1 Tbsp olive or grape seed oil

3 cloves garlic, minced (3 cloves yield ~1 1/2 Tbsp)

1/4 cup diced red or white onion

1 medium head cauliflower, grated into “rice” (see method here)

1 pinch sea salt (plus more to taste)

3 Tbsp lime juice (~ 2 limes)

1 tsp ground cumin (plus more to taste)

1/2 tsp chili powder

1/3 cup red or green salsa (plus more for serving // I like Trader Joe’s Chunky Salsa)

1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro (plus more for serving)


1 Tbsp olive or grape seed oil

1 medium red, green, orange, or yellow bell pepper (thinly sliced lengthwise)

1/2 medium red onion (sliced into 1/4-inch rings)

1 pinch sea salt


Add beans to a small saucepan over medium heat and season with spices to taste. Once bubbling, reduce heat to low and stir occasionally.

Prepare cauliflower rice by following these instructions. Then heat a large rimmed skillet over medium heat.

Once hot, add oil, garlic, onion, and a pinch each salt and pepper. Sauté for 1 minute, stirring frequently. Then add cauliflower ‘rice’ and stir to coat.

Place the lid on to steam the rice for about 2-4 minutes or until almost tender like rice (al dente in texture), stirring occasionally. Chop up your bell pepper and onion at this time.

Remove rice from heat and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add lime juice, cumin, chili powder, salsa and fresh cilantro. Stir to combine and taste and adjust seasonings accordingly, adding salt, pepper, lime juice, salsa, or more spices as desired. Set aside.

Heat the large skillet back over medium-high heat. Once hot, add oil, bell pepper and onion and a pinch of sea salt. Sauté, stirring frequently, until slightly softened and they take on a little colour - about 4 minutes.

To serve, divide rice, beans, and peppers between serving bowls. Enjoy as is or with corn tortillas, chips, salsa, lime juice, hot sauce, or guacamole (recipe in notes).

Best when fresh, though leftovers keep for 2-3 days in the refrigerator.

Serve with desired toppings (listed above) or as is. I recommend avocado, lime juice, hot sauce, and cilantro. Toppings not included in Nutritional information.

Best when fresh, though leftovers keep covered in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Reheat in a 350 degree F (176 C) oven until warmed through - about 20 minutes. See notes for instructions on making ahead of time.
