A lot of you – our readers – are from the United States of America so we’re going to try and help you celebrate Thanksgiving and make it as metal as you obviously want it to be. Hooray!
First up is a delicious looking recipe for Creamy Peanut Soup with Turkey by Annick ‘The Morbid Chef’ Giroux that we found on Noisecreep. It will help you use up all your leftover turkey and will either feed four people or you, four times.
6 cups beef stock
1 cup raw peanuts with no shells
1 tbsp cooking oil (canola or peanut if possible)
1 large onion, diced
1½ cup of mixed veggies (2 peeled and diced carrots, 2 diced celery sticks, ½ cup of diced green beans… etc)
½ cup of frozen peas
½ lb turkey meat, cut into bite-size pieces
¼ cup raw rice
Salt and pepper, to taste
½ potato, cut into fine juliennes (tiny tiny fries) and fried in oil until crispy OR a handful of julienne potato stick chips
Minced fresh parsley (optional)
Chile flakes (optional)
1. Bring the beef broth to a boil, and then add the raw peanuts. Boil until the peanuts become half soft, then mix together in a blender until you get a creamy consistency. Leave aside for now.
2. Heat the cooking oil in a large saucepan over low heat and stir in the onion and mixed vegetables. Cook slowly until the onions and mixed veggies are soft, about 10 minutes. Stir in the frozen peas, and let cook slowly another 10 minutes, stirring from time to time.
3. Add a cup of water, the peanut cream mix and the raw rice. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Partially cover, and cook without stirring for 20 minutes. Add turkey pieces, and then cook for another 20 minutes.
When ready to serve, season the soup with salt, pepper and hot pepper flakes to taste. Ladle into bowls and top with the crisp fried potatoes and a sprinkling of minced parsley.
Another turkey-related thing that will help your Thanksgiving be extra METAL is this Turkish metal band. Theyre called maNga and they play some pretty lightweight nu metal, which is probably how they won an MTV European Music Award. Anyway, you can listen to some Turkish metal here, if you want to.
If you got bored, you can watch this weird YouTube of the Master of Metal giving a Thanksgiving message. This is the secondary message, attached to the video…
Nothing says Thanksgiving like stripping a turkey naked and waterboarding it in some gravy! May your mouth be filled with juicy meat this holiday season.
Anyway… Basically, it doesn’t seem like Thanksgiving is a very metal holiday so just put on a Slayer t-shirt and look the part at least. We just hope you don’t live in Detroit, in close proximity to Nickelback.
