As part of my depression kit last week, I picked up a copy of the latest Food Network Magazine. Unlike the last issue, which I thought was ho-hum, this issue was really, really good! I particularly loved the Bobby Flay burger section. It inspired me to make some burgers - and I found out that his new cookbook, Burgers, Fries, & Shakes, is a Random House publication, and since I review books for Random House, I requested a review copy of it and it's on its way! Woo-hoo!
Anyway, I liked the looks of a recipe for avocado relish in the article, and I made it to go on my burgers last night. It was excellent stuff!
Avocado Relish (by Bobby Flay)
1/2 small onion, diced
1 minced jalapeno
juice of 1 lime
3 tbsp chopped cilantro
salt & pepper
Mix everything together.
I made half the recipe and omitted the jalapeno because I don't like them.
I made the burger with bison meat and seasoned it only with salt & pepper - as Bobby Flay apparently does! I topped it with red pepper, spring mix, and some of the Italian flavoured Monterey Jack cheese I got at the Village Cheese Co. I served my burger with some roasted potatoes, and I have enough left over for a couple of nights.
