It’s hard to make a turkey burger taste good. You kind of need to season the hell out of it. We mixed a pound of ground turkey with a minced half-onion, a couple of cloves of garlic, an egg, and — CJ’s idea — 1/2 tsp each cinnamon and cumin. Kind of a turkofta. Onions keep it from getting dry, spices keep it from getting bland. I blog it in order to remember it.
In other news, this New York Times gazpacho smoothie is ace and we’ve been making it three times a week. The suggested pecorino crackers are too salty and unnecessary.
We’re in the heart of tomato season now and I’m buying about 10 lb a week. Did you know there was a Paul Robeson tomato? Once you sang on Broadway and battled for civil rights, Paul Robeson. Now you are in my smoothie.
