Turkey Burger 3.0

It was a lovely weekend in San Francisco this past Saturday and Sunday and what a treat it was to have a lazy Sunday. Friday night we crossed the bay and hung out in Jack London square for some Vegan Soul Food and an opening weekend show of Inception. The Vegan Soul food at Souley Vegan was absolutely off the chain. Absolutely nuts good. See below for pictures. BBQ Tofu Burger, Chicken Fried Tofu, Candied Yams.

I also loved Inception. Yeah, I mean how can you go wrong with Leo, Christopher Nolan and the delicious mind fuck of a plot? My only qualm without giving away spoilers was that they played Edith Piaf music and Marion Cottiard (who won an oscar playing her) - is also in the movie and I dont know whether its an homage or just annoying.

Saturday I had a helluva day pouring beer at the Breast Fest at Fort Mason with the MateVeza crew. Good times, hair bands, day drunk --- all awesome in my book! There were also some fun

And lastly - the recipe. Ah, the recipe. Sweet Sweet recipe. I want to tell you that these burgers are an open book of tastes. The flavor palette is exactly what you think it will taste like, no hidden punches just straightforward good. The biggest surprise was the Toasted Almond Avocado mash - who knew these two tasted so awesome together!?

Goat Cheese & Cranberry Turkey Burgers with Toasted Almond & Avocado Mash
1 lb of ground turkey
1/2 an onion, diced
1 cup dried cranberry's
1/4 cup of goat cheese
1 egg white
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 Avocados
3 cloves of garlic
1 cup toasted almonds (I toasted them myself!)
Step One: Combine the turkey with the onions, dried cranberry's, goat cheese, salt and pepper and the egg white at the end to bind the burger. Shape into patties! It should make 6. Shawn cooked these on the grill for about 15 minutes. You could do on the stovetop and it would be just fine too.
Step Two: In a food processor put in 1 avo, the garlic and the salt and pepper. Mish mash it up - scoop out and add the almonds whole. On the side cut up an avo and slice it all chunky like and add it to the puree to give it some body. Salt and Pepper to taste!

Step Three: Do a little dance and put it in your mouth! Oh also top the burger with the puree.
