Empty the Fridge Dinner

February 11, 2014

Some days you just want to get dinner on the table as quickly as possible.  Today was one of those days.  Normally I wouldn’t post about a quick, throw together dinner, but tonight’s turned out so yummy I had to share. Keep in mind this isn’t a recipe so much as a list of food I had in the fridge.

  • Lean ground turkey
  • Broccoli (cut into florets)
  • Cauliflower (same as above)
  • 2 big carrots (cut into slices)
  • Optional: quinoa

Toss all your veggies with EVOO, garlic powder, cayenne and pepper. Put them in a 400 degree oven and cook for about 25 minutes, turning once half way through. Meanwhile cook the ground turkey on the stove-top, add salsa and simmer.  If you’re having quinoa, cook it now.

Once the veggies and meat are cooked, throw them both into a big bowl and mix. BOOM! That’s it – you’re done. Eat it alone like I did or served on top of quinoa like Ian did.  Either way, it’s quick, easy, delicious and nets you tons of protein, fibre and Vitamins A and C.
