Friday Feast - Paleo Meal - Roasted Red Pepper Turkey Burger

Paleo Meal - Roasted Red Pepper Turkey Burger and Grilled Asparagus
By Dr. J. J. Gregor DC, DIBAK, DCCN

This was pretty easy Paleo / Primal recipe, the part that took the longest was the roasting of the red pepper.  Ground turkey tends to be bland in my opinion even if you use the higher fat grind, so I herb the heck out of mine.  If the burgers dry out on you, maybe try a home-made marinara sauce type of topping.

1 Red Bell Pepper
2 tsp. Olive oil (for roasting)
2 tbs. Minced Garlic
2 Shallots Diced
1 tbs. Butter
1/2 tsp. Turmeric
2 lbs. Ground Turkey
2 tbs. Oregano
1 tbs. Garlic Powder
1 tsp. Coriander
3 tbs. Italian Seasoning
1 Medium Egg beaten
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 lbs of Asparagus (trimmed)
1 tsp Garlic
2 tsp. olive oil Preheat oven to 500 degrees F, lightly coat the pepper in oil and roast for approx. 30 min. turning every 10 min.
Remove the pepper when all the skin is wilted and loosely wrap in aluminum foil until cool enough to handle.
Remove skin by running under cold water and rubbing, then remove the stem and seeds and dice.
I sautéed to shallots in the butter with garlic and turmeric to soften them a bit.
Combine the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Form into patties and grill to the desired temperature.  Can also use a pan or oven to bake this dish.
Combine the Garlic, oil, and Asparagus in a foil "bed" and grill until done.
