  • 1 pound turkey breast, sliced into strips
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 2 cups water or chicken broth
  • 1 small red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 small yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 small zucchini, sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup pesto sauce (store-bought or homemade)
  • Fresh basil leaves, for garnish (optional)

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Season the turkey breast strips with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the turkey breast strips and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  4. In a medium saucepan, combine the quinoa and water or chicken broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the quinoa is cooked and the liquid is absorbed.
  5. While the quinoa is cooking, spread the sliced bell peppers, zucchini, and cherry tomatoes on a baking sheet. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and lightly charred.
  6. To assemble the Turkey Pesto Bowls, divide the cooked quinoa among serving bowls. Top with the cooked turkey breast strips and roasted vegetables.
  7. Drizzle the pesto sauce over the bowls and garnish with fresh basil leaves, if desired.
  8. Serve the Turkey Pesto Bowls immediately and enjoy the delicious flavors and wholesome goodness! 🍲🥗
