Directions:

Cook quinoa according to package directions 1 cup quinoa to 2 cups water ratio.  When quinoa is halfway through cooking take medium skillet on medium heat.  Add garlic and 1/2 onion minced fine.  When onion and garlic are translucent approximately 3 minutes add ground turkey breast, bell pepper, and 1/2 cilantro chopped fine.  Cook on low heat.  When quinoa is done add to turkey mixture.  While turkey and quinoa are cooking wash, slice, and dice onions, tomatoes, avocado, carrots and arugula.  When turkey quinoa mixture is done season with sea salt and pepper to desired flavor profile.  Then dress your taco with your fresh toppings.  If you like you can top with some fresh Parmesan or  Nutritional yeast for a zesty addition.  Although they are just delicious as is you can also top with salsa.

Note:

These can be eaten as a salad without tortillas, put into a burrito, taco or eaten naked.  We love to use the leftovers and make additional dishes for lunch like bowls top a salad or roll up in a wrap.  These are super healthy, low fat, and very delicious for the whole family.  Great for kids as you can get them involved in the toppings.

Optional:  If you like spicy add one whole jalapeno minced to the turkey. No seeds equals mild, with seeds equals HOT!
