2 tbsp Olive Oil
450g Turkey Mince
1 Garlic Cloves
1 Large Onion
1 Large Carrot
85g Porridge Oats (great for adding fibre to your diet)
Chili (the amount depends purely on how hot you like it)
100g dried apricot, finely chopped (can substitute with apple)
Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a pan and gently fry the onion until soft (typically 5 minutes). Crush the garlic gloves, add to the pan and fry for a further minute. Add the porridge oats at this stage if you want to include them. If adding oats, fry for a further minute or two until the oats are nice and soft. Tip into a bowl and allow to cool.
Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl; this includes the egg – beaten, the carrot – grated, and the minced turkey. Mix well using hands, add salt and pepper to taste then shape into patties (you should be able to make 8 patties with the amounts provided here).
Pre-heat your oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.
Sear the patties in a non-stick frying pan using the remaining oil. Sear until well coloured (about 3 – 4 minutes on each side).
Transfer to a baking sheet and cook in the pre-heated oven for a further 10 – 15 minutes. Serve (we leave it you to decide what you serve with).
