1 T EVOO or coconut oil
1 carrot, grated
4 spring onions or 1/2 a red onion, diced
500 grams turkey mince
200 grams of tempeh, grated
1 T tamari
1 chilli, chopped
2 teaspoons of cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
2 handfuls of greens of your choice (kale, water cress, spinach), chopped/shredded
Ground pepper to taste
Add oil to a medium heated pan, add the carrot and onions and saute until just softened and fragrant.
Remove from heat and add to a large mixing bowl with all other ingredients, with your hands thoroughly work the ingredients into each other (you may want to let it sit for a while for the onion/carrot to cool before beginning to mix it).
Roll into balls and pat down softly to flatten on a lined tray that will fit into your fridge, leave in the fridge for 2 + hours to set (you can do this the night before, or the morning of cooking these for dinner...this step is important so they don't fall apart in the oven/pan).
Oven bake these for 10 - 15 minutes each side, or until just golden. Alternatively pan fry them for 5 minutes each side in a little bit more oil.
Enjoy with a fresh garden salad, in a whole grain burger bun or wrapped in a cost lettuce leaf with extra salad.
