Many curry recipes have a lot of ingredients and because of that, people are often put off by them. So we decided to simplify this recipe to make it quicker and easier to cook but still a delicious curry full of flavour. You can use any pumpkin for this recipe. We used organic jap pumpkin. Traditionally this curry is eaten with brown or basmati rice and bread but it’s bursting with flavour so you can eat this curry with other steamed vegetables or vegetable curries as well. This is a good way for you to increase your vegetable consumption. Make sure your curry powder is free from fillers and gluten-free if you are gluten or wheat intolerant. One which is made purely with spices is best.
These Delicious Turkey and Veggie Patties are moist, colourful, tasty and nutritious. They’re gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free. They make a quick and healthy midweek dinner and are great for lunchboxes. You could also make these into balls. For kids, you might wish to use less cayenne pepper or omit it if it’s a bit too spicy but I find it to be fairly subtle. It’s worth the extra step of frying the onions and spices as this brings out the flavour. Turkey is a healthy source of protein needed to grow, repair and replace tissue in the body. Free-range turkey is best if you can find it. You could also use chicken mince in this recipe. The grated carrot adds moisture, colour and nutrients to the patties and helps increase your veggie intake for the day. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants which promote healing in the body.
These Turkey Meatballs are really flavour-some, quick to make and very healthy. They’re gluten-free and dairy-free. I haven’t added egg as I find that the mixture sticks together enough without it and eating two or more proteins together is harder to digest so I prefer to keep it simple but add an egg if you prefer. You could also add ½ a cup of gluten-free breadcrumbs or almond flour for that texture if you wish. Turkey is a healthy protein. Free-range turkey is best if you can find it. Spinach contains extra nutrients and you can’t really tell it’s in there. Great for fussy eaters. Hope you enjoy!
