I am just not really in the mood to cook this week.  I didn’t want to be at the stove for longer than 15 minutes and I did not feel like working very hard.  Enter: the bowl full of random stuff. So, what was in the fridge?

Ground turkey
Salsa
Brussels Sprouts
Avocado

I can work with this. I still had some of the cajun seasoning from yesterdays lunch, so I figured why not use that up.  This dish is super filling thanks to the sprouts and the avocado, so a pound of turkey will feed four normal people or two big dudes.  I made the whole pound and will pack that sucker up for lunches over the next few days.

Serves 4:

1 lb ground turkey
1 tbsp cajun seasoning
salt & pepper
Olive oil / Coconut oil / Ghee Butter for pan
2 avocado
1 cup salsa*

* I found a really great, chunky store bought salsa in the produce section of my Whole Foods. You can always make it yourself, but this was just easier.

1) Heat your fat of choice in a medium skillet over medium heat to make your brussels sprouts.  Cut the bottom off and cut them in half. Toss in salt and pepper. Lay brussels, cut-side down, in the pan and let sit for 4-5 min. Stir and continue cooking another 5 min (if you want more fat, add a pad of butter at this point and toss around).

2) Add your cajun seasoning, salt and pepper to the ground turkey. Heat another skillet over medium-high with some fat. Cook turkey, breaking it up, until no longer pink.

3) Toss everything together in a bowl: Ground Turkey, cubed avocado, brussels sprouts, and salsa. Eat.
