Tuesday: Italian-inspired frikadellen

Last night I made up a batch of frikadellen with an Italian slant. To the meat (mixed pork and beef) I added chopped grilled peppers, chopped basil in oil, minced onion, lemon zest, egg, crushed saltines (we were out of bread crumbs), salt and pepper. I formed the patties and let them stand for half an hour before sauteing them in olive oil.

These were really nice.

As a side I made a quick tomato sauce (onion, green garlic, tomatoes, bay leaf, oregano, marjoram) that we ate over whole wheat noodles.

We also had two (2!) salads: a small green salad and some shredded carrots that I dressed with rhubarb compote, a small splash of red wine vinegar, grapeseed oil, cayenne, ground coriander, and salt.
