Greek Turkey Rice Bowls are a healthy and filling rice bowl inspired by Greek flavors! They’re great for meal prepping and eating clean all week long.
It’s been awhile since I’ve cooked with Greek flavors and I have missed them so much! Usually I make my Falafel Quinoa Bowls, but I was craving something a bit more meaty, which is how these Greek Turkey Rice Bowls were born!
I love rice bowls for so many reasons. For one, they can be customized for every palate. People just add the ingredients that they want, and everyone has their own bowl. Second, they’re great for kids! My kids LOVE rice and I usually make sure there’s at least one other component they’ll definitely eat, and then it’s a great opportunity to introduce new foods to them. Last, they are perfect for meal prep. I tend to make extras of all of the ingredients so, in addition to being one dinner for all of us, it can be a couple of lunches, too!
Components of Greek Turkey Rice Bowls
First, there’s the Greek inspired ground turkey. It’s a combination of ground turkey, onion, oregano, basil, garlic, and sun-dried tomatoes and it has SO much flavor!
Next, there’s a tomato salad. The tomato salad is made with cherry tomatoes, red onions, red wine vinegar, olive oil, garlic, and parsley.
Of course the bowls need a rice base, so I came up with lemon parsley rice, which is kind of like cilantro lime rice in a burrito bowl, just with Greek flavors.
Last, every rice bowl needs sauce! It’s all about the sauce in my book, and this Greek rice bowl is topped with a homemade tzatziki sauce. This tzatziki is made with plain Greek yogurt, olive oil, lemon juice, dill, cucumber, and garlic. SO good!
Other toppings are olives and sliced cucumbers which add flavor and some crunch!
