Do you have any New Year Resolutions? We challenged ourselves to eat healthier! With the help of MasterChef’s Michael Varga (@vargacooks) and our Lean Turkey Pepperoni Bites, we’re able to achieve that resolution with the Lean Turkey Pepperoni Med[iterranean] Bowl! 


  • Grimm’s Lean Turkey Pepperoni Bites
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 cup Kalamata olives 
  • 2 ripe avocados 
  • 1 pack halloumi / or 1 cup feta 
  • 2 cups cooked turmeric rice 
  • 2 cups of your favourite hummus 
  • 1 cucumber 
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes 
  • 1 large carrot 
  • 1 cup spring mix greens 
  • 1 cup pistachios 
  • Spicy mayo (optional) 

Turmeric Rice Recipe 


  • 1.5 cups of rice (We recommend Basmati) 
  • 3 cups water 
  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric 
  • 1 tablespoon each of cumin, garlic powder & kosher salt 
  • 1 large spoon of chicken bouillon or 1 pack of bouillon powder
  • kosher salt to taste 
  • olive oil 


  • In a sauce pan, toast rice with spices and olive oil until incorporated and heated up. About a minute. 
  • Pour in water, stir and bring to a boil. 
  • Once boiled stir for one final mix 
  • Cover and simmer for 14 minutes 
  • Remove lid & fluff rice, cover until ready to eat 


While the rice is cooking, prep the rest.

  1. Slice the veggies (Cucumbers sliced into rounds, Peppers julienned, Tomatoes cut in half, Carrots shredded)
  2. Set veggies aside 
  3. Slice the pepperoni on a diagonal – each pepperoni bite sliced into two pieces 
  4. Fry the halloumi in a hot pan. Drizzle oil in a pan, get it hot! Place the halloumi in the pan. Fry for 2 minutes, flip and continue for another 1-2 minutes until both sides are golden. Squeeze lemon juice and remove from pan. 
  5. If using feta, crumble and set aside 
  6. Divide the ingredients and build your bowl, starting with hummus and rice on the bottom. Add all or some of the veggies, pile in the pepperoni & drizzle with your favourite sauce or dressing 
  7. Top with pistachios for some crunch
