Turkey meat is one of the leanest forms of protein, perfect for those who are watching their weight or just trying to eat a little less fat. Luckily, it also tastes amazing, and goes perfectly with most flavour combinations. We’ve used lean turkey mince here in these tasty family dinner recipes to prove how good it can taste. From our delicious burgers and rissoles, to our spiced meatballs tossed through pasta and pilaf, there’s something here for every night of the week. Let’s get cooking!
Spiced turkey koftas with sweet and fragrant fig and brown rice pilaf.
For a lighter version, replace coconut cream with a 270ml can of light coconut milk and ½ cup chicken stock. Note
Turkey mince is learner than regular beef or pork mince. To hide added vegetables from the kids, grate vegies rather than chopping them. Add chopped basil for green goodness and flavour. Note
Take this delicious lettuce wrapped burger to the next step and veg it up! Replace turkey patties with pan-fried haloumi or fried flat mushrooms.

Koftas are simply minced meat mixed with spices, and often onions, and rolled shape, although in many Arab countries they are shaped into ovals.
