Ground Turkey and Sautéed Mizuna with Sesame Noodles + Two Shepherds 2018 Skin Fermented Trousseau Gris #WinePW

This is a sponsored post written by me in conjunction with the May #WinePW skin-fermented event.
Wine samples or wines at an industry discount were provided for this post and this page may contain affiliate links.

This was a pairing I created for the skin-fermented wine event for May's Wine Pairing Weekend with a wine from Two Shepherds Winery.*


You can read the tasting notes in my post: Diving into the Skin Fermented Wine Pool of Two Shepherds Winery. Once it goes live, on Friday, May 9th, I'll link to it. But here is the recipe for this simple dish with lots of seasonal flavors. 



I was inspired by a bunch of mizuna, or Japanese mustard greens, that I received in my CSA (community-supported agriculture) box. You can use any leafy green that you have! That's one of the things I love about this recipe: you can swap out the protein and the veggies easily. It's the sauce that makes this dish really sing.



On the side, I served broccoli that my younger son grew in his IBMYP Personal Project Garden, avocados that a friend's son is growing and selling to make money for college, and sugar snap peas also from my CSA. So, this was a beautiful, locally-sourced dinner to go with a stunning and funky wine.

Ingredients serves 6

Sauce
  • 6 T tahini (feel free to substitute any nut butter if you don't have tahini)
  • 5 T soy sauce or gluten-free tamari
  • 1 T honey (I've also used ginger syrup or maple syrup as well)
  • 1 T warm water
  • 1 T toasted sesame oil
  • 1 T rice vinegar OR freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1" knob fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and pressed

Noodles
  • 1 package noodles, cooked as directed and drained (I used linguine)
  • 1 T toasted sesame oil
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 to 3 C organic mizuna greens, destemmed and roughly chopped
  • fresh herbs for serving


Procedure

Sauce
Put all the ingredients for the sauce into a blender or the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until smooth. Set aside.

Noodles
Heat 1 T sesame oil in a large skillet. Add in the ground turkey and cook until completely browned, approximately 6 to 8 minutes; there should be no pink left. Stir in the greens and cook until just wilted, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in 1 to 2 T of the sauce and set aside.

Place cooked and drained pasta into a large mixing bowl. Add in the cooked turkey and mizuna mixture and add rest of the sauce. Toss to coat completely. Serve immediately or even at room temperature.

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!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
