This recipe is perfect for a weeknight dinner when you don't have much time to cook - quick and easy to make, but it doesn't skimp on flavor.


    1 lbs. ground turkey

    1 head cauliflower

    2 tsp. garlic powder

    sea salt & black pepper to taste

    1 tsp. dried oregano

    1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes

    4 oz. mozzarella cheese

    1 c. tomato sauce


Place the cauliflower florets in a shallow pan. Add water - just enough to cover the cauliflower. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and let steam for 7-8 minutes.

While cauliflower is steaming, brown the ground turkey, breaking up the meat as it cooks. Season with salt, pepper, and 1 teaspoon of garlic powder.

When the cauliflower is done, drain it, and season with salt, pepper, oregano, red pepper flakes, and remaining garlic powder.

Stir the cauliflower into the ground turkey. Add shredded cheese, and stir to combine and melt. Divide between 4 plates, and top each with tomato sauce.
