The houmous in this dish is made with smoked chickpeas – it adds an extra dimension of flavour to the turkey patties, which also feature lemon zest, fresh basil and worcester sauce. Using microwave rice keeps prep time to a minimum, meaning you can have this family-friendly dinner on the table within half an hour.

  • 800g turkey mince, breast or thigh
  • 4 tbsp Moorish Smoked Houmous
  • 100g breadcrumbs
  • 2 bunches fresh basil, leaves roughly chopped. Plus extra leaves to serve
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • 4 tbsp worcester sauce
  • 2 tbsp cornflour (or plain flour)
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 courgette, diced
  • 1 red or yellow pepper, diced
  • 2 flat mushrooms, chopped into small chunks
  • 400 microwave pilau rice
  • 90g rocket
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


Step 1

Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6. Place the turkey, houmous, breadcrumbs, basil, lemon zest and worcester sauce in a large bowl. Season and mix together, then form into 12 patties. Dust each one in the cornflour, tapping off the excess

Step 2

Put 2tbsp oil into a large non-stick frying pan and bring to a high heat, then add half the patties to the pan (you’ll have to cook them in two batches). Fry for 1 min on each side, then remove them to an oven tray. Repeat for the second batch, then put the patties into the oven to cook for 5 mins.

Step 3

Meanwhile, wipe the frying pan and add 2tbsp oil. Add the courgettes, pepper and mushrooms, season and cook on a medium heat for 5 mins, stirring all the time. Microwave the rice for 2 mins, according to pack instructions.

Step 4

Once the patties are cooked, remove from the oven and set aside to rest. Add the rice to the vegetables and combine well.

Step 5

Lightly dress the rocket with the extra virgin olive oil and the reserved lemon juice, to taste.

Step 6

Serve the vegetable rice with the patties, some extra basil leaves and the dressed rocket.
