Turkey burger with sweet potato wedges
Prep 15 min
Cook 25 min
1 large sweet potato (about 190g), cut into wedges
260g turkey breast mince (under 5% fat)
1 small red onion, diced
1 garlic clove, grated
1 large egg, beaten
1 apple (about 70g), peeled and grated
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp paprika
15g coconut or vegetable oil
Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Zap the sweet potato wedges in the microwave for about 6 mins on full power until just turning soft. Leave to rest for 30 secs.
While the sweet potato is spinning in the microwave, mix the mince in a bowl with the onion, garlic, egg and apple. Get your hands stuck in and work the ingredients together with a good pinch of salt and pepper, the oregano and paprika. Shape the mixture into two burgers about 3cm thick. Place on a baking tray in the oven for 15-20 mins until cooked through.
Heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the sweet potato wedges and shallow-fry for about 3 mins each side until they are nicely browned all over and cooked through to the centre. (Alternatively, toss in the oil and roast in the oven for 15-20 mins.) Drain on kitchen paper, then season with a good pinch of salt.
Serve the burgers with the sweet potato wedges and a portion of green veg either steamed, blanched or boiled.
