For the burgers:

  • 450g lean turkey mince/low fat veg mince
  • 1 medium sized egg
  • 20g fresh coriander, finely chopped, plus extra to garnish
  • 1 green chilli, finely sliced
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 tsp Thai 7 spice seasoning
  • Half a small red onion, finely chopped
  • Slice of fresh lime to garnish

For the vegetable side dishes

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 50g baby lead spinach


  • Preheat oven to 175 ̊C/350 ̊F.
  • In a large bowl, mash up the mince,
    using a masher or your hands. Add the
    remaining burger ingredients and mix well until well combined. Shape the mixture into 5 patties, then transfer to a lightly greased baking tray. Oven cook for 10 minutes. Turn over and cook for a 10-15 minutes. The juices will run clear when cooked.
  • For the vegetable side dishes: Bake the
    sweet potatoes in the oven for 45 minutes or until soft. Using a fork, scrape the contents of the potatoes into a bowl. Discard the skin. Mash thoroughly and season well. Stir in the cinnamon.
  • Pour cold water into a non-stick frying pan (just enough to cover the base).  Add the tomatoes and cook gently for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the spinach and wilt gently.
