Ok, let’s talk turkey.

To many, ground turkey is bland and boring; but if I am being honest, that is why I like it so much! It serves as a blank canvas that can take on any flavor. And we’re all here for the flavor, right?!

To give this turkey some flavaaaa I added a little oregano, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper. Simple spices that make an impact.

I added about a 1/4 cup to each bowl, drizzled on a healthy amount of olive oil and sprinkled with fresh mint, salt, and pepper.

Again, simple allergy-friendly ingredients that make an impact.

And these wouldn’t be true Mediterranean bowls without tomatoes, cucumber, kalamata olives (the brininess is perfect against the creaminess of the yogurt), fresh mint, and a squeeze of lemon juice!

Dig in!!
