Baharat Turkey Bowl

Bahārāt is a super aromatic middle eastern inspired spice blend used in the same way a garam masala blend would be used in India. It isn’t spicy but you could certainly use ½ hot paprika if you wanted it spicy. This spice blend will keep for several months in a tightly sealed jar in your pantry. We also sell it in pre-blended packages in store at Well Seasoned.

Ingredients for Baharat:

  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper*
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin*
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander*
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves*
  • ½ teaspoon ground cardamom*
  • 1½ tablespoons sweet paprika*
  • 1 teaspoons ground cinnamon*
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg*

Ingredients for the turkey:

  • 3 tbsp Well Seasoned Olive Oil
  • 1 medium sized cooking onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 ½ tsp Baharat seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • ¼ cup toasted pine nuts
  • 1 small handful of freshly chopped cilantro

Tahini Dressing:

  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • The juice of 1 fresh lemon
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Kosher salt*
  • *Available from Well Seasoned

Instructions for Turkey Bowl:

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil & add the onions. Sauté for about 5 minutes until softened and translucent.
  2. Add the garlic and the Baharat, sauté for about a minute to release the oils and aromas from the spices.
  3. Add the turkey and break it up as it browns. Cook for about 10 minutes until the turkey is cooked through and nicely browned.
  4. Stir in the pine nuts & cilantro, remove from the heat and taste to adjust seasoning as required.

Instructions for Tahini Dressing:

  1. In a medium sized mixing bowl combine the tahini, lemon juice & honey. Whisk to combine.
  2. Add a bit of water if necessary, to make the dressing creamy and pourable. The mixture may seize up and thicken at first, but continue adding water a little at a time and whisking until creamy and smooth. Taste and adjust flavour as needed, adding more lemon juice for acidity, salt for saltiness, or honey for sweetness.
  3. Serve the spiced turkey over steamed brown basmati rice, generously drizzled with the Tahini dressing, sprinkled with pine nuts & more cilantro.
