Delicious Discoveries

Don’t you love finding a new blog to read? It opens up a wealth of new posts and possibilities.

On the weekend I had a peruse of Davida‘s blog, The Healthy Maven. I was low on food in the fridge and trying to find a recipe that I could put together with the bare necessities (haven’t we all found ourselves in such a situation?).

IMG_0249I was elated to find I had all the ingredients for Davida’s Moroccan Turkey Meatcakes. They were really tasty, and so simple to prepare. They’re made with ground flax and Greek yogurt. I was (ever) the skeptic, but boy were they good! So light and delicious, not at all thick and ‘meaty’ like so many meat dishes. I enjoyed them a lot :)

The very next day, I whipped up her fluffy Grain Free Protein Pancakes. With the second recipe, I was sold. This wasn’t just a one trick pony ;)

Last night, I made yet another dish of hers: Thai Turkey Burgers with Peanut Sauce. Side note: Despite how often I cook it, I really don’t like saying the word turkey out loud, it makes me cringe. I wonder if there is a repressed childhood memory I don’t know about?

The burgers were burgers. So I was already won over. But the real draw card was the peanut sauce. I’ve never attempted my own, and avoid the salty-sugar-laced already made varities. It was so good, when I took my first bite, I looked to the person next to me to exclaim how amazing it tasted. Then I remembered I was eating alone.

SAM_2729It was/is amazing. The sauce was absolutely perfect – the burger itself was another great turkey burger recipe to add to my ever expanding list. The veggies really helped bulk things up, and yet didn’t dominate the entire flavour.

I served it on my latest craze, lettuce wraps. The whole meal was, quite frankly, the bomb.

Thank you to Davida for sharing some fabulous eats, there will certainly be more to test-drive :D
