What You’ll Need –

1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1/2 Tsp Black Pepper
1 Tsp Turmeric Powder
4 oz Grassfed Ground Beef
1/2 Cup Canned Coconut Cream
1/2 Cup Water/Beef Broth
1 Cup Frozen “Riced” Cauliflower
2 Big Handfuls of Fresh Spinach
6-8 Grape Tomatoes, Halved
1 Tsp Arrowroot Flour
Salt to Taste

What You’ll Do –

1. Add your Coconut Oil, Black Pepper and Turmeric to a medium pan over low heat.  Allow the mixture to warm for 3-5 minutes as the Oil and Pepper activate the anti-inflammatory properties of Turmeric.  Be sure to stir often and don’t allow the mixture to burn.

2. Add your Ground Beef and allow to brown in the oil and spices.

3. Once the beef has browned, add your Coconut Cream and Water and slowly bring up to a low boil.

4. Add your Tomatoes, Riced Cauliflower, and two heaping handfuls of Spinach.

5. Once the veggies have mixed in, turn heat to a low simmer and add in your Arrowroot Flour.  Stir well then allow to thicken (5-8 minutes).

5. Salt to taste.  Serve and enjoy!
