As today is National Burger day, I thought I would share this healthy burger alternative with you.  Instead of minced steak it uses minced turkey breast which is a much healthier choice.  As I love Thai food, I have chosen to include a combination of chilli, ginger, lime and soy which work so well together

I am very aware that most of us have too much red meat in our diet which our bodies find difficult to digest.  Using turkey breast mince is an excellent way to satisfy a craving for burgers but in a way that is better for our bodies.

This recipe is now a firm favourite and it’s really easy to make.  To try it you will need the following:
Recipe

  • 500g turkey breast mince
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 2cm piece of fresh ginger (peeled and finely chopped)
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 3 spring onions (finely chopped)

Instructions

  • place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix together really well
