I am part of the Chipotle generation. There is no question that the sustainable health conscious meals at Chipotle that have helped redefine the fast food movement are amaze-balls! However, with my go to chicken burrito bowls containing 800+ calories, I may feel super healthy eating at Chipotle, but ultimately end up with not quite the skinniest of options. In typical little chef fashion, I reinvented my favorite fast food dish with lower carbs, leaner meats and luckily for me, tons of leftovers!
- 1 head of cauliflower (riced)
- 1 lb of ground turkey
- 1 tbsp. cumin
- 1 cup of canned black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 cup of corn (fresh, frozen, or canned)
- 2 heads of romaine lettuce, shredded
- 1 avocado
- 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 cups of your favorite salsa
- 1 medium red onion, diced
- 1/2 cup of cilantro, chopped
- 1 lime
- Servings: 4
- Difficulty: easy
- To rice the cauliflower, use the grater attachment on your food processor, or a grater attachment and grate the cauliflower. This will create small, rice like flakes.
- In a large pan, heat 1/2 tbsp. olive oil over medium heat and gently sauté the cauliflower until tender. Toss with half of the cilantro. Squeeze in the lime juice.
- Set aside the "rice"
- Brown the turkey and season with the cumin until cooked through
- Once cooked, heat the corn, beans, and salsa
- Place the romaine on the bottom of a plate or large bowl, top with 1/4 of the rice, 1/4 of the ground turkey and your desired toppings and enjoy!
