  • 1 tbs olive oil

  1. Press SAUTE on your Instant Pot/pressure cooker and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

  5. Add the tomatoes as well as the canning juices followed by the bay leaf.

  6. Seal the lid and leave to cook.

  7. Spiralize the zucchini and add to the meal prep bowls. Do not cook. They will cook once you reheat the meal.

  8. Brown turkey in a large skillet as the sauce cooks.

  9. Use quick release when the timer goes off on the Instant Pot.
