Brown 1 lb of ground turkey meat, adding 1 chopped red onion about 2/3 of the way through. Add spices such as cumin, fresh chopped garlic, salt - whatever you have on hand and/or like, but the cumin is key - when the turkey has finished cooking add the chopped spinach (I used frozen tonight, but fresh is better) and/or turnip greens. Cook until the spinach/greens is/are wilted. Add approx. 2 tsp of lemon zest, and 1TBS of lemon or lime juice at the end. Enjoy.
If anyone else tries this, let me know if you liked it. I make it often, but I'm the only one in my household that eats it.
Thank you for sharing your (Faux) turkey chile.

Alright today I made up the following burgers and they are like meatloaf burgers!!! Absolutely delicious!!!! I had to have 1-1/2! Instead of the usual 6 I used to squeeze out of 2 lbs, this made up a group of 8 nice sized patties.
Roast separately in a bit of ghee a handful of cardamom, cinnamon (broken to small bits), aniseed, star aniseed, cumin & coriander seeds. Cool and coarsely grind individually (they all have different textures)along with a table spoon of turmeric powder in a coffee mill. Mix together & store in fridge in a bottle. Good antioxidants. I use this for my sweet potato wedges (from the recipe index). I'm sure it'll work well with meat, as these spices are meant to tendarize meat.
