This Healthy Turkey Fajita Rice Bowl recipe is made with delicious cilantro lime cauliflower rice, savory peppers and onions and spicy turkey! (low carb, gluten free, paleo)
Sticking to that New Years resolution to eat a little healthier just got easier thanks to this Healthy Turkey Fajita Rice Bowl recipe!
I’ve teamed up with my friends over at Honeysuckle White and Shady Brook Farms to create this protein and veggie-filled fajita bowl that’s perfect for lunch, dinner and meal prep. It’s made with a flavorful and bright cilantro lime cauliflower rice that’s insanely easy to make, sauteed peppers and onions for that Mexican fajita flavor and hot Italian turkey sausage links for lots of protein with a spicy kick.
Because this dish is made with all the veggies, it’s packed with tons of nutrients and is naturally gluten free, low carb and paleo-friendly.
Ingredients you’ll need
To make the fajita vegetables, all you need are 2 bell peppers of any color, 1 poblano pepper and 1 onion. I like to get peppers of all different colors so the bowl looks super appetizing (you eat with your eyes first!), but you can use whatever color you have on hand. If you can’t find poblanos at your grocery store, you can substitute a bell pepper instead.
To make the cilantro lime cauliflower rice, lightly pulse cauliflower florets in a food processor until it resembles rice and place it in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave it on high with a little water for 3 to 4 minutes and then mix it together with some chopped cilantro, lime juice and salt.
Load up on good protein
Last but definitely not least, the star of these fajita bowls are the Hot Italian Turkey Sausage Links from Honeysuckle White. They’ve got a little kick to them which pairs perfectly with the peppers and onions and they’re a great source of protein without all the excess fat.
Honeysuckle White and sister brand Shady Brook Farms are the only major national turkey brands to exclusively provide family farm-raised turkeys to people like me and you! The turkeys are raised by more than 700 independent family farmers without any growth-promoting antibiotics or added hormones or steroids.
I got to visit a Honeysuckle White turkey farm in Missouri last year, and it was so amazing! I saw first-hand just how much everyone cared about raising and providing good quality food to others. It was truly inspiring.

Meal prep and freezer friendly
Not only is this recipe ready in 35 minutes or less, but it’s also great for meal prepping lunches ahead of time or freezing for later.
If you’re making these for lunch throughout the week, just portion out the recipe into microwave-safe containers (these are my favorite) and keep them in the fridge up to 5 days until you’re ready to eat!
If you’ve got some leftovers that you want to freeze, portion out the bowls like normal and place them in freezer-safe containers or storage bags. When you’re ready to eat, remove them from the freezer and warm them up in the microwave. Easy peasy!
