  • 500g lean turkey mince
  • 100g feta , crumbled
  • 1 large courgette (about 200g), ends trimmed, halved widthways and spiralized into thin noodles
  • 2 garlic cloves , crushed
  • ½ small pack mint , leaves picked and chopped
  • ½ tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp sumac
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon (save the juice for the salad)
  • 1 large egg , beaten
  • 1 tsp olive oil

For the tomato salad

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 110g bag of rocket salad
  • 250g pack cherry tomatoes , halved


  • STEP 1

    Mix all of the ingredients for the turkey burgers, bar the olive oil, together in a large bowl. Season with a generous amount of black pepper and a little salt (you won’t need a lot because of the feta). Shape into 4 burgers, the mixture will be quite sticky so cover and chill in the fridge for 15 mins or until needed to firm up a little. At this point the burgers can also be frozen.

  • STEP 2

    Preheat the grill to its highest setting then brush the burgers on both sides with the olive oil. Transfer the burgers to a non-stick baking tray and cook for 8-10 mins on each side, until cooked through and golden brown.

  • STEP 3

    While the burgers are cooking, mix together the olive oil, lemon juice and some seasoning. Add the rocket and tomatoes to a large salad bowl, add half the dressing and toss well to combine. Serve alongside the turkey burgers and with the extra dressing on the side.
