Turkey ‘Kofta’ Patties

You know it’s going to be a great day when you open your door and find a bowl of Paleo muffins awaiting you. I received a text at 8:15am from my fabulous neighbor and CrossFit buddy, saying she left muffins at my doorstep! I mean, how awesome is that?!

For breakfast, I had the usual: 2 fried eggs with 1/4 a sweet potato.

After several coffees and getting some work done at a local coffee place, I had some almonds for a snack and skipped lunch. I just wasn’t that hungry and had had too much coffee.

For dinner, I had defrosted some ground turkey in the morning but haven’t had the time to think about what I’ll do with it. Turkey tacos (a staple at our house,) turkey meatballs, or a meatloaf. I decided to make some turkey patties/burgers/kofta, whatever you want to call them.

Here’s what I used to make them:

1lb ground turkey

1 onion finely chopped or grated

1/2 tspn cumin, paprika, ground Turkish red pepper, all spice, garlic powder, and onion powder

2 Tblspns Almond flour

1 egg, beaten

3 chopped baby bell peppers

2Tblspns chopped parsley + 1/2 Tblspn chopped green onions

Salt and Pepper, as desired

2-3Tblspns coconut oil for pan frying the patties

1- Mix all the ingredients very well in a mixing bowl. You’ll have a gooey mixture, but don’t worry it holds well together once you put it in the pan

2- Heat the pan and add half of the coconut oil in it.

3-Form the ground turkey into patties and fry for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

Serve and enjoy!

Here’s what my dinner plate looked like.
