IngredientsFor this Honesty Diet recipe, you will need:
- 250g minced turkey
- 3 spring onions, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon pre-chopped garlic
- 2 sundried tomatoes, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh flat-leafed parsley, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon olive oil, for grilling
- Lettuce leave and slices of tomato and onion, for topping
- 2 large celeriac
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon mild curry powder
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- Preheat the oven to 230° C.
- Mix all the burger ingredients, except for the olive oil, together in a large bowl. Divide the mixture into four equal amounts and shape into burgers. Place them on a plate, cover and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
- Peel the celeriac by slicing off the top and bottom and using a sharp knife to remove the tough skin. Cut into fat chips. Blanch the chips by boiling them, uncovered, for 2 minutes.
- Drain the chips and then place them back in the saucepan. Add the oil, curry powder and sea salt, and coat the chips well.
- Spread the chips on to a large baking tray, leaving space between them. Cook in the oven for 30-35 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
- Remove the burgers from the fridge and brush with the olive oil. Place under a preheated grill and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Dress your burger with the lettuce, tomato and onion and serve with the chips.
