Sweet and Savory Cinnamon Rice Medley Recipe Ingredients


  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon
  • 2 cups Rice
  • 1/2 pound mixed pepper or 2 peppers of your choice
  • 1 large Onion
  • 2 tbsp Parsley
  • 1 tbsp Corridor
  • 1 tbsp Paprika
  • 1 pound Ground Turkey or Beef


This rice medley recipe was designed as a vehicle to pack as many nutrients and flavors as possible. Feel free to make this one your own. Like I said before, do your homework and find out what works for you.

Once again, start by getting your rice started. I recommend adding cinnamon to your rice, but if you find something else you would like to try, this is the time. 

Cut your onions and peppers into a julienne cut. If you have one, cook the peppers and onions with salt and olive oil on medium-high heat in a large iron skillet for about 30-45 seconds. If not, a regular sauté pan will work.

Using a cast-iron skillet may have some health benefits. Here’s another opportunity to try adding a flavor of your own. Maybe try adding a little oregano here; it may have some health benefits.

Now it’s time to cook your meat. We used turkey for this recipe, but once again, it’s up to you! I’ve used beef and bison for this recipe as well. While the pan is still hot, add your meat with the peppers.

Evenly break up the meat and add your seasonings. Cook your meat evenly and thoroughly until it is completely cooked, and no pink remains. 

If you can make it fit, add your rice to your skillet and mix it around to soak up all the flavors and seasonings from the pan. If not, just mix it all together in a bowl.

I like to finish this dish by topping it with some parsley to add a little more flavor and possible health benefits.

Hardy classic skillet meal jam-packed with carbs, protein, and micronutrients!


  • 1 TBS Cinnamon
  • 2 Cups Rice 
  • 1/2 pound mixed pepper or 2 peppers of your choice
  • 1 large Onion
  • 2 TBS Parsley 
  • 1 TBS Corridor
  • 1 TBS Paprika
  • 1 pound Ground Turkey or Beef


    1.Start cooking your rice with cinnamon and salt

    2. Cut your peppers and onions into long thing pieces

    3. In a large skillet (or pan if you don't have a skillet) cook your peppers on medium-high heat with salt and oil until they start to get soft and start to release moisture. About 30-45 seconds.

    3. Add your ground turkey or beef to the pan with the onions and peppers and add your seasonings. Stir and break up your meat to make sure it cooks evenly. About 5-6 minutes or until it is no longer pink.

    4. Add your cooked rice to your skillet if it will fit or mix all of your ingredients in a large bowl. 

    5. Serve hot and top with chopped parsley.

And lastly, a very smart way to package these is by using these meal prep containers. Love using these, and they have replaced traditional food containers in my home. They are so convenient to use.

They are all the same size and are stackable, which makes it really easy to keep your cupboard and refrigerator organized. They come in many different shapes and sizes so look around and find the ones that best fit you.

On top of that, they are microwave safe. Just pull it out, heat it up, and you’re good to go!
