Ground Bison and Cauliflower Bowl

This Ground Bison Veggie Bowl recipe is perfect for paleo and low-carb diets. It’s a grain-free and easy recipe that is so delicious and satisfying. This is a 30-minute meal that you can make on busy weeknights.

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup cauliflower rice (see notes if using frozen cauliflower rice)
  • 1 pound ground bison
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano (or Italian seasoning)
  • 1 teaspoon dried turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup chopped kale


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, pour in the the olive oil. Let the oil heat up for a minute or so. 
  2. Add the onion and cauliflower rice, and stir to combine. Cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the bison and use a spatula to break up the pieces as it cooks. 
  4. Sprinkle in the oregano, turmeric, salt, and pepper, and stir to combine. Let the mixture cook for about 3 more minutes.
  5. Add the kale, reduce the heat to low, and cover the skillet. Cook for 1-2 more minutes, or until the bison is cooked through.
  6. Turn the heat off and serve the bison mixture hot.


  1. You can substitute lean ground beef for the bison, if you prefer.
  2. I used fresh cauliflower rice (not frozen) in my recipe. If you want to use frozen cauliflower rice, just cook it a bit long when you cook it with the onion (about 4 minutes).
  3. Store any leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat before serving.
  4. If you can’t find ground bison at your local grocery store, try a specialty foods store like Whole Foods Market or your local butcher.
  5. Be careful not to overcook the cauliflower rice. If you cook it too long, it can get soft and soggy.
  6. If you aren’t on a Whole30 or paleo diet, you can use pre-cooked rice in place of the cauliflower rice.
  7. Ground bison tends to have a mild flavor compared to other game. If you’re concerned it will taste too gamey, you can substitute ground beef for the bison.
