I have to admit this is a rubbish picture! Unlike food magazines, who have people employed to style their food, mine really are the food we eat and my Husband stands next to me asking when he can take his plate away and eat it!
But I wanted to publish the recipe anyway as it was so delicious and easy to make. A great alternative to beef burgers but by making it yourself you know that it isn’t full of unknown ingredients and nasties.
Ingredients: serves 4
500g turkey mince
2 shallots, finely chopped
12 sun-dried tomatoes in oil, chopped
coconut oil for cooking
2 pinches chilli flakes (optional)
Chop the shallots and tomatoes ready.
In a large bowl mix all the ingredients together by hand. Ensure you add the oil from the sun-dried tomatoes too.
Then take the mixture and form into 4 burger shaped patties. If you have young children you can break them down further into smaller ones.
Heat the coconut oil in a frying pan and put the burgers in on one side, on medium heat, cooking for about 3 minutes until browned. Then turn over, reduce the heat, cover and leave to cook for 5-10 minutes until the meat is cooked all the way through. If necessary turn the heat up at the end to brown this side off too.
Serve with sweet potato wedges, avocado and a green salad.
