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.

Serves 4


  • 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


  1. Gently fry the garlic in the olive/coconut oil.
  2. Add to a large bowl with all the other ingredients, season, and mix thoroughly. Shape the mixture into 4 patties.
  3. Place on a plate and cover, putting them in the fridge to firm for approximately 10 minutes or until required.
  4. Barbecue (or grill) on a medium heat for about 10 minutes or until cooked through, turning once during cooking.
