Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/ 160C fan/gas 4. Put the flour into a wide, shallow bowl with a little seasoning. Whisk the egg in a second shallow bowl with 1 tbsp water. Add the breadcrumbs, lemon zest and parsley to a third shallow bowl.
  2. Get the kids to dip each turkey steak into the flour, shaking off any excess, then into the egg, and finally into the breadcrumbs – press the crumbs into the turkey to make sure they really stick. Put the steaks on a large baking tray, drizzle with oil and bake for 20 mins. Add the cherry tomatoes to the tray and bake for a further 5 mins.
  3. Meanwhile, boil a pan of water, then add the broccoli and cook for 5 mins. Add the butter beans and cook for 2 mins more until broccoli is really tender. Drain well and leave to steam-dry for 1-2 mins. Tip back into the pan, add the pesto and get the kids to mash everything up with a potato masher. Divide the turkey smash and tomatoes between plates – adding lemon wedges for those who want to squeeze some over.

I halved the recipe as only feeding two of us. Husband loved it and said "you can make this again"!! Also it was very easy.

This was somewhat a flop, as the different shades of taste don't mix at all.

I won't recommend it, but it might be enhanced a bit by including peas in the mash for sweetness, and less pesto.
