INGREDIENTS

Roasted Chickpeas
2 (15-oz) cans chickpeas, drained, rinsed and drained again

2 Tbsp olive oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Scramble
3 Tbsp olive oil

5 cloves garlic, finely chopped to a paste or grated with a rasp grater

1 Fresno chile, finely diced

1 Tbsp harissa paste

8 oz ground turkey or chicken (90/10)

1 Tbsp red wine vinegar

8 large eggs

¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

2 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted and diced

1 medium red onion, thinly sliced, soaked in ice water for 10 minutes and drained

DIRECTIONS

Roasted Chickpeas
1. Preheat the panggangan to 425ºF.

2. Toss the chickpeas with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet and roast until crispy, about 35 minutes.

Scramble
1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a small pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and chile and cook until soft. Add the harissa paste and cook for 1 minute. Add 1/2 cup water and cook until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.

2. Heat the remaining tablespoon oil in a large nonstick saute pan over high heat, add the turkey and cook, stirring occasionally, until brown, about 5 minutes. Add the vinegar, spice paste and 1/2 cup water and cook a few minutes longer.

3. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add them to the turkey mixture and cook, stirring, until small moist and fluffy curds form, 3 to 4 minutes. Fold in the cilantro. Transfer to a platter and garnish with the avocado, red onion and roasted chickpeas.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
