Cauliflower Turkey Curry

One of the best things about turkey during the holidays is the leftovers, right? Turkey sandwiches, turkey soup, turkey many options! But, have you ever tried making a curry out of your leftover turkey? Simple, healthy, and full of flavour, this Cauliflower Turkey Curry needs to be on your leftover recipe list!

Using precooked turkey makes this recipe come together so quickly, and you can easily toss in whatever veggies you have on hand (especially any leftovers from your holiday dinner), but I love the combination of cauliflower, red bell peppers, and spinach. Curry doesn't have to be complicated. Simple, basic ingredients can bring together a flavourful, rich curry. Enjoy this curry on its own, over rice, or with a side of naan bread.


0.5 lb leftover cooked turkey

1-2 cloves minced garlic

1 tbsp fresh ginger, finely minced

1 tsp yellow curry powder

1 1/2 - 2 tbsp red curry paste

1/2 tbsp lime juice

1 tbsp coconut oil

1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

1 cup chopped cauliflower

1 cup spinach

1/4 medium onion

1/2 can full-fat coconut milk

2 tbsp chopped cilantro or basil

Pinch of salt and pepper

Serve over brown or basmati rice


Heat the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for about 3 to 4 minutes.

Add the ginger and garlic and stir to coat for another 1 to 2 minutes. Reduce heat slightly, and add the curry powder and curry paste, and stir frequently for about 2 minutes until fragrant.

Add the red pepper, cauliflower, and cooked turkey, and mix until well combined. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Add the coconut milk and lime juice and mix until everything is well coated. Let simmer for a few more minutes until the curry starts to thicken slightly. Then mix in the spinach and allow it to wilt slightly.

Serve over brown or basmati rice and garnish with cilantro or basil. Enjoy!
