Looking for some trader joe’s meal prep ideas? This ground turkey meal prep bowl recipe is so EASY + HEALTHY and takes just 15 minutes to make! 



  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 16 oz. ground turkey (not extra lean)
  • 2 cloves garlic, divided
  • 3/4 tsp. sea salt, divided
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper, divided
  • 16 oz. frozen quinoa (fully cooked, microwavable)
  • 16 oz. baby broccoli
  • spicy peanut vinaigrette 


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey and garlic to pan. Cook for about 6-8 minutes, or until fully cooked, breaking up turkey with a spatula or back of a wooden spoon. Season with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and a pinch of black pepper. 
  2. Transfer turkey to a bowl or plate and wipe out pan. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil in same pan over high heat. Add baby broccoli and garlic to pan. Stir and cook for about 2 minutes, until slightly brown. Carefully pour in 1/8 cup water into the pan and cover. Turn down heat to medium-high and cook for another 4-6 minutes, until broccoli is tender. 
  3. Meanwhile, cook quinoa in microwave. 
  4. Divide quinoa, turkey, and baby broccoli into 4 containers. Serve with spicy peanut vinaigrette. (I used about 1-2 tablespoons per bowl.) 
  5. Store in the refrigerator, when ready to eat, heat in microwave until hot and drizzle with dressing. 


  • You’ll need a 3 cup meal prep container.
