About two years ago, my aunt found out I loved to cook, so she bought me Barbara Kingsolver’s fantastic book, “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle,” which chronicles Ms. Kingsolver’s life for a year while she grew and ate local-based food. It is chock-full of recipes and wisdom regarding food and eating practices, I recommend it highly to anyone interested in agriculture, gardening, or food in general. Here is her website regarding the book. http://animalvegetablemiracle.com/
ANYHOO, this recipe came from her book. It wasn’t my favorite recipe of all time, but it smelled amazing.
Lets get started!
- 1 1/4 pounds raw ground turkey
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 1/8 cup (Or 2 tablespoons, depending on the measuring system you use) chopped garlic
- 1/4 tablespoon paprika
- 3/4 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon fresh oregano (Or 1/2 teaspoon dry)
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme (Or 1/2 teaspoon dry)
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
- Grab all of your ingredients to prepare them.
- Chop whatever fresh ingredients you are using! I have fresh oregano from my herb garden, so I used that.
- Add all of the seasonings and onions and toss until mixed well.
- Add ground turkey. If the meat seems a bit dry, moisten it with a little bit of olive oil.
- I made around nine patties.
- Fry on medium heat with a bit of olive oil in a frying pan.
- This is about what the completed patties should look like!
- An easy, complete meal with a simple salad and brown rice.
