This is one of those simple meals that comes together when you stare blankly into your fridge and debate whether you have to go to the grocery store or not. Feeling especially lazy this day, I opted not to go to the grocery store and instead throw together a dish using what I had on hand - ground turkey, cauliflower, green beans, some tomatoes, and spices. The result was surprisingly comforting and delicious and I have actually been making it on purpose since it's first accidental creation.
