#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.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
