  • In a large pan, add 1 tsp of olive oil, 1/2 cup of diced yellow onion, and 2 Tbs diced garlic and heat over medium heat, mixing every so often for 3 minutes. Add the diced red pepper, mix, and cook for another 3 minutes.
  • Add 1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms to the pan, mix, and good for about 6 minutes. Then, add the halved cherry tomatoes to the pan, mix and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Add the ground turkey to the pan, along with 1 1/2 Tbs of tomato paste, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp ground black pepper, 1/2 tsp ground paprika, 1/4 tsp crushed chili flakes, and 1/4 tsp chili powder. Mix everything together well and let the meat cook about 7-8 minutes, until cooked through.

  • Serve the meat sauce on top of the broccoli rice.
