#10DaysofTailgate: Spiced Kofta with Carrot Karma Yogurt Dip


Because we were getting some much needed rain, my plans to have Jake grill these were foiled. Instead of grilling, I ended up baking them in the oven. They were delicious just the same.


Ingredients
For the Kofta:

  • 1 lb 96/4 organic, grassfed ground beef
  • 1 T parsley, finely chopped (I used some prepped herbs from Gourmet Garden Herbs & Spices*)
  • 1 T cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 T basil, finely chopped
  • 1 t oregano, finely chopped
  • 1 onion, peeled and finely diced
  • 1 t ground cinnamon
  • 1 t ground coriander
  • 1 t ground cumin
  • freshly ground sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • Carrot Karma Hot Sauce by Intensity Academy* for brushing

For the Yogurt Dip:

  • 1 C plain whole milk yogurt
  • 1 T garlic
  • 1 T herbs
  • 1 T Carrot Karma Hot Sauce by Intensity Academy*

Procedure

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Mix all of the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Knead until all the herbs and spices are evenly distributed. Roll the meat into finger-sized rolls. Place the rolls on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Roast the kofta for 20 minutes. Brush the kofta with Carrot Karma and return to the oven for another 20 minutes.

While the kofta cooks, whisk together the yogurt dip. Let the kofta cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
