This recipe is ideal for the barbecue but use a good quality turkey mince (ideally organic) and take care not to char the meat as this promotes the development of harmful free radicals. Serve with a pitta bread with lots of salad for a filling and delicious meal.
2 large cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
16oz (454g) minced turkey
1 tbsp sundried tomato paste
1/2 level tsp paprika
1/2 level tsp mild chilli powder
1 tbsp tamari (or soy sauce)
1 tbsp lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Gently fry the garlic in the olive/coconut oil.
- Add to a large bowl with all the other ingredients, season, and mix thoroughly. Shape the mixture into 4 patties.
- Place on a plate and cover, putting them in the fridge to firm for approximately 10 minutes or until required.
- Barbecue (or grill) on a medium heat for about 10 minutes or until cooked through, turning once during cooking.
