I haven’t had a burger in since I don’t know when and today I had a real craving. So I did what info best… Made my own!
These are really simple to make and taste delicious. I don’t eat bread so they are bun-less but you could quite easily add a burger bun and a Alan of cheese to gourmet it up!
500g turkey mince
2 tbs of wheat free flour
1 tbs of dried sage
Salt and pepper for seasoning
4 garlic cloves
1 red pepper
Mix the mince meat with the egg, flour, sage, salt and pepper.
Form the mixture into 6 balls. Heat a griddle or frying pan, add each ball and pat down into the obligatory burger shape.
Chop the peppers, onions, mushrooms and garlic. Fry these off after the burgers are cooked.
Prepare the salad and construct as you wish.
Yet another simple, quick and healthy meal to end the day.
This recipe makes rather a lot lol enough for 2 meals and then at least 2/3 lunch’s for the rest of the week.
630g Turkey mince
2 medium onions
10 button mushrooms
2 small red peppers
2 cans of chopped tomatoes
2 garlic cloves
2 tbs of tomato purée
1 small red chill
2 tbs of chilli powder (or as much/ little as you like)
A bunch of lettuce leaves instead of tortilla wraps (though you could use them, but as I’m on a wheat and gluten free diet lettuce leaves are great for wrapping).
Cheese and sour cream for toppings.
Simply chop up all the veg and fry in a little oil. Once softened, add the turkey mince and cook till browned.
Add the tomatoes, tomato purée and cook for about 5/6 minutes.
Plate up with lots of lettuce and created cheese! BOOM! Enjoy.
How something so simple can be so tasty is beyond me. This meal took me all of 60 seconds to prepare, 20 minutes to cook and about another 60 seconds to eat lol
Simply quarter 3 small sweet potatoes, drizzle over a little oil (I’m on a rice bran kick at the minute), pinch of sea salt, pepper, mixed herbs and bake along side your meat of choice.
I had some thin turkey fillets but salmon or cod would be perfect. Season and bake the whole lot for about 20 minutes.
Serve simply as it is with a table spoon of pesto on top on your meat. I had some of my home made pesto left over from yesterday which was seriously delicious… Even if I do say so myself!
… Make extra and take it to work for lunch tomorrow! Enjoy!
Curry is one of the most simple things to make. There are of course a million different ways and everyone has their own tricks of the trade. This is my very simple and quick Turkey Tikka curry! Completely wheat and gluten free of course!
1 can of coconut milk
2tbs tikka powder
2tbs of natural yogurt
1 whole pepper
1 whole onion
5 small mushrooms (feel free to add a mixture for extra flavour and texture, I just had chestnut to hand)
3 cloves of garlic
2 turkey breast fillets (obviously you could use chicken or pork)
1 packet of microwave brown rice
Chop your meat of choice into small cubes and brown in a little oil. About 4-5 minutes, on a high heat, depending on the size of your chunks.
Chop all the veg into chunks and add to the browned meat. Cook for a further 5-6 minutes. Making sure to keep stirring.
Step 3 (optional)
If you like you can add some spices to cook off with the meat and veg. I had some fennel seeds to hand do added them. Anything you have in the store cupboard like saffron could be added for extra spice. It’s totally up to you!
Once all the meat/ veg is browned add in your can of coconut milk and 2tbs of tikka powder.
You can also add at this stage 2tbs of natural yogurt which will help thicken the sauce or if you have some corn flour then mix some of that bad boy up and add it in.
Leave all that to simmer for about 10 minutes on a medium heat and your curry is done!
2 minutes before the end of your cooking time, pop the microwave rice into la microwave… 2 minutes… BOOM! Your good to go.
These are a total god send. I take them to work all the time and my cupboard is never without them! Seriously, why go to the hassle of boiling rice ever again! I stock up when they are on offer as they last forever!! This particular verity was 2 packets for £1.50! Total cheat BUT and absolute bargain!
Plate up and enjoy. I like to add a spoon of yogurt on top. Looks nice and cools it down if it’s extra Spicey!
