Quick Meal Prepping Greek Turkey/Brown Rice/Broccoli Bowls

Meal prep can be a real pain in the neck some Sundays, particularly ones that feature a full day of church, kid activities, cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping… yeah. The last thing I want to do is slave over a hot stove, chop vegetables, and cook my meals for the week. All I really want to do is shove a roast chicken in the oven and catch up on Hindsight or Nashville while I’m folding laundry.

So I look for shortcuts for some of these weeks. This ground turkey/brown rice/broccoli lunch isn’t super-sexy (and with the Greek dressing, not gluten-free, either), but it’s quick, easy, and with a tablespoon of feta cheese, delicious. This recipe yields four lunches and is nightshade-free.

Easy Meal Prep: Greek Turkey/Brown Rice/Broccoli Bowls

You’ll need:

What to do:

  1. Combine rice and water in a rice cooker. Turn the rice cooker on, and press start. Set a timer for 20 minutes.
  2. Cut the broccoli into florets. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the Greek dressing mix, olive oil, and red wine vinegar. Add more of both if you want it a little more liquidy, but this mix worked well for me.
  4. Cook the ground turkey in a skillet or wok until it’s browned. Add the Greek dressing mix and make sure the turkey is thoroughly coated.
  5. When the timer goes off, add broccoli to the steamer basket on your rice cooker. Continue cooking the rice and broccoli until it’s done.
  6. Divide the rice, broccoli, and seasoned turkey into four reusable lunch containers.
