Minced turkey is very lean (around 3% fat) and takes just a short time to cook. Which makes this a winner for a quick midweek meal.

Ingredients

Turkey Breast Mince, raw

500 g

Garlic

1 clove(s), crushed

Root Ginger

1 tablespoons, fresh

Curry Powder

1 teaspoons, mild

Soy Sauce

1 tablespoons

Salt

1 teaspoons

Mint, Fresh

2 tablespoons, chopped

Courgette

2 medium

Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 190°C, fan 170°C, gas mark 5. Mix together the mince, garlic, ginger, curry powder, soy, salt and a tablespoon each of mint and coriander. Using clean hands, dipped in cold water, shape into 12 even size balls.
  2. Line a shallow roasting tin with a sheet of non-stick baking paper and place the meat balls on top.
  3. Top and tail the courgettes then cut into sticks. Arrange in another roasting tin or dish, season and sprinkle with half the lemon juice.
  4. Bake both dishes together for 15-20 minutes until the meatballs feel firm when pressed. Turn the courgette slices once or twice in the oven and remove when just softened. Place on a platter, scatter over the remaining chopped herbs and serve alongside the meatballs.

Notes

Bake sliced courgettes (to serve) in the oven at the same time.
