Curried Lettuce Cups
One of my favorite healthy and quick recipes, that’s so unique and packed with flavor! I love curry seasoning, but what I love even more is a meal that fills me up without weighing me down. This one does just that! Prettier picture coming soon :)
1 lb organic ground turkey (or 2 cans garbanzo beans)
1 head of butter lettuce
1 head or package of cauliflower rice
3-4 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 large yellow onion, chopped
2-3 carrots, chopped
3 celery stalks, chopped
1/4 cup loose packed chopped cilantro
1 Tbs coconut oil
2 1/2 teaspoons of garlic powder
2 1/2 teaspoons of onion powder
2 teaspoons of turmeric
3 teaspoons of yellow curry powder (find it in the spices section)
1 teaspoon of ground coriander
approx. 1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika (optional)
2 cups of cooked quinoa
coconut aminos to taste
+ extra cilantro springs to add on top of lettuce cups before folding to eat.
Heat coconut oil in large skillet.
Add in all veggies (save cilantro) and cook a few minutes until onions are translucent.
Add in turkey meat (or garbanzo beans) and spices, and cook until cooked/heated through.
Add in cauliflower rice and chopped cilantro, and cook until just tender (don't overcook cauliflower rice).
Taste and adjust spices accordingly. Let filling cool slightly (~5 mins out of the pan).
To assemble, add in quinoa, then turkey mixture, and coconut aminos and cilantro on top. Hold like a taco and ENJOY!
