Before I share a new recipe, it goes through many iterations; however, this was delicious the first time I experimented with the ingredients. This recipe is quick and easy, which is just what you want, after all your effort to make Thanksgiving work well. ©Joyce Hays, Target Health Inc.
2 or 3 cups left-over turkey
1 pinch sea salt
1 pinch black pepper
1 teaspoon curry
1 jalapeno, seeds removed, then very well chopped
2 Tablespoons Kraft mayonnaise
2 teaspoons left-over gravy from bottom of turkey roast pan
6 fresh garlic cloves, sliced
One 2 inch piece of ginger, peeled then grated
6 scallions, thinly sliced (use the white part only)
Juice of 1/2 fresh lime
1 Tablespoon chickpea flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg, plus 1 egg white, slightly beaten in a small cup
Extra virgin olive oil for cooking
Use left-over gravy or make a new batch.
You need a food processor for this recipe and a large skillet.
1. Get all your slicing, egg-separating, chopping, grating, done first.
2. Get out your food processor, and a large skillet
3. All the ingredients are going to end up in your food processor, so it hardly matters, which goes in first, except, do this: add all of the dry ingredients last.
4. Add the dry ingredients to the food processor, last. Then, pulse until all ingredients have been completely and thoroughly combined. It's important to do this right.
5. Next, with a narrow spatula, scrape all the contents from your food processor, into a medium bowl. Get it all out, so it all goes into the Turkey Biscuits.
6. Put oil in your large skillet and plan to cook no more than 3 or 4 Turkey Biscuits at a time. Use a medium high flame and heat before cooking.
7. Rub some flour together, on your hands, then with a Tablespoon, scoop out of the bowl, some of the mixture, and with your other hand, form an oval shape while mixture is still in the Tablespoon, and plop it into the hot skillet, using fingers to get all of the mixture out of the Tablespoon. There is no need to have each Turkey Biscuit look exactly the same.
8. Cook 1 to 2 minutes on each side. After flipping over the first time, you may see that this side needs to be cooked a little longer. Simply wait until the other side has cooked and browned, then flip back and cook a little longer, if needed. Both sides should be a golden brown; but not overcooked, or will be ruined.
9. Have a serving platter ready, so that when cooked, you can arrange the Turkey Biscuits and serve immediately with hot gravy and a few sesame seeds (black or white) sprinkled over the Biscuits.
We went to Lincoln Center this weekend to hear Verdi's Requium, a magnificent choral piece conducted by James Levine, whose health is better now, hence the maestro is back in the pit. Very enjoyable time!
Have a great week everyone!
