Directions

1. To make the Garlic Butter Turkey with Cauliflower: Heat a large skillet over medium-low with one tablespoon vegetable oil. Saute the pre-cooked cauliflower florets in the skillet, under slightly golden brown – make sure not to burn cauliflower. Deglaze with lemon juice, add in some fresh cilantro, salt and pepper to your taste, and toss to coat well. Remove to a shallow plate.

2. In the same skillet (rinse the skillet if cauliflower has burnt), melt butter with one tablespoon oil and cook ground turkey, breaking the meat apart with a wooden spoon. When the turkey meat is no longer pink, add garlic, the onion powder and give a quick stir. Add soy sauce, water, and hot sauce and continue cooking, stirring regularly, for a couple of minutes.

3. Push ground turkey aside and return the cauliflower to the skillet. Reheat quickly and coat cauliflower in the sauce. Add a drizzle of sesame oil, sprinkle with fresh chopped cilantro, red chili pepper flakes and garnish with lemon slices. Serve the Garlic Butter Turkey with Cauliflower immediately – enjoy!

Notes:

  • To cook cauliflower quicker: Throw the cauliflower florets in a bowl and add 1/4 cup (60ml) water, cover and microwave for 4 minutes before sauteeing.
  • If you want more sauce: remove the cooked ground turkey from the pan and add butter, garlic, and onion powder. Deglaze with soy sauce, hot sauce, add a few drops of water if necessary – You can use the same quantities as the ingredients list. Transfer to a small bowl and serve along with cooked ground turkey and cauliflower.
  • Make sure to use low sodium soy sauce and don’t add salt to the recipe. The dish is already salty enough!

    This was very good. Cut back on the onion powder, though. Recipe kept locking up when I removed images.

    We eat a lot of ground turkey (low carbers) and it's not easy to get solid flavor out of it, but this recipe proved a tasty success. Used what I had-- Normandy blend frozen veggies with extra lemon juice. Healthy and no leftovers...

    This was really good but I made several modifications. I used only 1 tbsp of vegetable oil, butter and garlic. I used only 1 tsp of the onion powder, Siracha and sesame oil. I omitted the pepper flakes. I microwaved the cauliflower prior cooking as suggested and added snow peas to get some extra veggies. It was just the right amount of spiciness for my husband and I but we like mild so it was perfect. Will definitely make again.

    I didn’t love this. Too much butter. It certainly is missing something to compete it as a meal. Will not be making this again.

    This was delicious. I wish the instructions were a little more clear tho. It said to add precooked cauliflower in the pan but the recipe ingredients did not call for "precooked" cauliflower. Despite the weird wording, I will make this again.

    Very delicious , I used coconut aminos instead of soy sauce , this will be good as lettuce wraps .
