Asian Turkey Burgers

Makes 5 Burgers and 3 Servings of Mash and Veg

Ingredients

For the burgers:

450g lean turkey mince

1 egg

20g fresh coriander, finely chopped, plus extra to garnish

1 green chilli, sliced finely

2 spring onions, sliced finely

1 tsp Thai 7 Spice seasoning

½ a red onion, peeled and finely chopped

Slice of fresh lime to garnish

 

For the vegetable side dishes:

2 large sweet potatoes

1 tsp ground cinnamon

10 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

50g baby leaf spinach

Method

  • Preheat oven to 175˚C.

  • In a large bowl, mash up the mince, using a masher or your hands. Add the remaining burger ingredients and mix well until well combined.

  • Shape the mixture into 5 patties, then transfer to a lightly greased baking tray. Oven cook for 10 minutes. Turn over and cook for a 10-15 minutes. The juices will run clear when cooked.

For the vegetable side dishes:

  • Bake the sweet potatoes in the oven for 45 minutes or until soft.

  • Using a fork, scrape the contents of the potatoes into a bowl. Discard the skin. Mash thoroughly and season well. Stir in the cinnamon.

  • Pour cold water into a non-stick frying pan (just enough to cover the base). Add the tomatoes and cook gently for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the spinach and wilt gently.

  • The burgers and mash can both be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days.
