Ingredients for 1 serving

267 g turkey thigh mince
26 g onions, chopped
58 g mushroom
95 g courgette, grated
6 g olive oil
51 g Thai green curry paste
39 g cheddar cheese, grated
149 g green beans
salt and pepper


  • Pre-heat your oven to 190°C fan/400°F and line a baking sheet with non stick foil.
  • Put your mince into a bowl along with the Thai curry paste and using a fork thoroughly mix the paste into the mince.
  • Take a cookie cutter and place it onto your baking sheet and using a spoon fill 1/3rd with turkey, top with grated cheddar and add a 2nd layer of turkey to form your burger.
  • Repeat until you’ve used all of your turkey mince.
  • Bake your burgers in the oven along with your mushroom until they are cooked and rest until needed.
  • Take a frying pan and pop it onto the heat along with the oil.
  • Mix your grated courgette with the onion and a little seasoning before adding it to the frying pan.
  • Flatten the mixture down to form a rosti or several smaller ones.
  • Allow these to cook for a few minutes on the first side before flipping them.
  • While the rosti are cooking, steam the green beans to your liking.
  • When you’re happy the rosti are ready arrange everything onto a plate and get ready for a cheesy spicy burger!

Recipe Notes

  • For anyone following 2018 BC plans, use lean turkey or chicken breast mince.
  • For anyone following older BC plans, make sure your mince is extra lean, less than 5% of fat per 100g.
  • If you don’t have Thai green curry paste, you can use red if that’s what you have.
  • For anyone following older BC plans you’ll notice that this recipe features 3 items from the vegetable list, therefore amounts of 2 have been halved so as not to affect the macros.
