Basil Turkey Sausage Patties

This recipe is so versatile, you can add whatever you have in your fridge. this recipe calls for basil carrots onions and spinach, but I’ve also added to the base ingredients (ground turkey, sausage, an egg, and almond flour) is chopped apples, mustard, cracked black pepper, and goat cheese and they were fabulous too. Here’s what we had for dinner tonight. These are so moist and flavorful….Yummm.

1 medium red onion chopped
4 tbsp olive oil
½ cup of chopped carrots or one large carrot
4-6 medium size cloves of garlic

zest of one small lemon
¼ of a bag of frozen spinach (about 1 cup frozen)
¼ tsp of sea salt
1 egg
¼ cup of almond flour or meal
1 pound of ground turkey
2 sausage links (raw I used garlic basil, but I find any on your favorite sausage works)

Heat up a medium size skillet on medium heat with olive oil
Add the chopped onions and saute until golden brown
Add the carrots and spinach and garlic. Cook until carrots are soft

Heat up a large skillet on medium heat with a little butter and olive oil (this ones for the patties)
combine and mix in a large bowl the cooked veggies, zest, sea salt, egg and almond flour, turkey meat and sausage (removing the casings)
With your hands make patties to about the size of your palm or smaller (I make them smaller for my kids)
Add the formed patties to the skillet and let them cook until the rim of the patties are white
Flip (add the cheese if desired) and cook for another four minutes
Serve

I served these with a concoction that the kids love and I like because it has less sugar then ketchup.
¼ cup of tomato sauce (I use an unsalted marinara that I keep in the fridge)
1-2 tbsp of your favorite BBQ sauce
Combine the tomatoes sauce and BBQ sauce in a serving dish and serve on the side

Chickpea Cheddar Sesame Cracker

I was tired of my son asking for gold fish every time he saw another kid munching on them. I thought, I’ve got to make a recipe that was savory, crunchy and full of protein. He loves these!!

Ingredients:

1 cup garbanzo flour
1 cup grated cheddar cheese ( a hard goat cheese for casein free)
1/4 cup water
1 Tbsp olive oil
Sesame seeds, sea salt, and 21 seasoning to sprinkle

Preheat oven to 350

Mix all ingredients together until you get a dough ball
Cut two pieces of parchment paper the size of a cookie sheet. Place one piece on the cookie sheet. Place the dough on the parchment paper with the other piece of parchment paper on top
Roll out the dough 1/8 inch in thickness
Peel of top layer of wax paper.
Using a pizza cutter or knife make 16 2×2 squares. This should look like a grid of markings on the dough. (the squares in the grid should be cracker size)
Sprinkle a little sea salt, sesame seeds and 21 seasoning on the surface and gently press it into place
Bake for about 30 minutes.
Remove for the oven and carefully break along the scored lines
cool and serve
store them in an air-tight container
